Is There A Limit On Zephyrus S17 (GX701) NVME Size?

I have a new ASUS Zephyrus S17 (GX701). I had hoped to increase the NVME drive to 2TB. Unfortunately it appears that the BIOS will no recognize any NVME larger than 1TB. I attempted to install a replacement NVME drive using Acronis 2021, but the BIOS would not recognize it. I have attempted to use the 2Tb drive for backup, but it would not be recognized by the BIOS when plugged into the USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports so no luck there, either. A 1TB drive is recognized by the BIOS for backup, but only when plugged into the USB 3.0 Gen 2/Thunderbolt port and not the USB USB 3.2 Gen 1port. BIOS limitation?

Hello dks01,
The largest SSD capacity we have tested for this model is 1TB.
Thank you.

Thank you. Unfortunate, but thank you.
