Legion 5-15ARH05 add secondary ssd nvme

2020-06-30, 14:11 PM

Hi,

 

i'm using Legion 5-15ARH05, 

 

can i add one more nvme ssd on my laptop ?

reviewer on youtube said that we need to remove the hdd caddy to use secondary ssd.

 

but when i read the manual, there is no slot for secondary ssd nvme.

 

it got me confused, any advice ?

 

thank you

There is a secondary NVME port that is next to the drive caddy.  It's Just over the battery.

 

I removed the drive caddy, and there is also a post for an 80mm NVME that coincidentally is also used for one of the drive caddy screws.

 

I just spent a few days trying to make this work, and it does work, but the system starts acting funny.

 

With the second nvme in place, a restart keeps boot-looping.

 

Waiting on Lenovo to provide more information,
