Let me share my upgrade for T430..

I bought this adapter expresscard for T430 with Nvme mini adapter.
and i also bought a mini nvme 2230 to install on this adapter.

I had a very good result.. more storage space on my Thinkpad.

1xSSD 240 Kingston in main tray;
1xSSD 240 Thinklife on ultrabay;
1xNvme 256GB on ExpressCard;
1xmSata 256GB, in MSata WWan slot.

Is the ExpressCard bootable? I have mine currently allocated to a SD card reader since the internal one is so flaky.

I Will try

BIOS dont specify exp slot but with a USB card adapter in it maybe just USB boot

How does the t430 run with modern applications?

which modern applications? For your every day stuff, zoom, Skype, ms office suite, it works fine.

Adobe Photoshop and Premier Pro can work if you have a quad core cpu, max out the ram and use an external gpu.

great, those are about it.
