Re: Can i add another hard drive

Hi AimingDuck!


Welcome to the community forums.


Based on a discussion in our community forums, the motherboard has two SATA connections which are used by both the hard drive and optical drive. You cannot add new SATA ports to the motherboard, it means that if you want to add an additional hard drive, you need to remove the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) to install an additional hard drive.
