How many harddrives can you have on the ThinkCentre M92z AIO?

Question

How many harddrives can you have on the ThinkCentre M92z AIO?

Answer

Officially Lenovo claims that you can only have one internal harddrive in the ThinkCentre m92z AIO, but unofficially you can have up to 2 (or 3 if you are really brave).

 

Full height mPCIe on the motherboard can support a mSATA. mSATA is a miniature SSD in a mPCIe card format.

While, the second hdd is in the main hdd bay, currently the largest i have used in that slot is a 3 terabyte 3.5 inch hdd. 

 

You can use a 2.5 inch SSD in that slot with the help of a 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch SSD adapter, which you can buy aftermarket, but officially Lenovo don't support these upgrade.

 

If you are really after a 3 harddrive setup, you can use a 12.7 mm ultrabay adapter in the slot and use a 2.5 inch SSD or platter hdd in that. But this is not a Lenovo supported upgrade, you take all responsibility for any damages that occur as the result.
