Getting a new hard drive for Lenovo G500

2020-06-28, 1:18 AM

I took out my Lenovo G500 hard drive for data recovery after a crash. I'm thinking replacing it and reinstalling Windows. What kind of hard drives will fit a Lenovo G500? Once it's in, can I just install Windows from a DVD?

Hi jph1,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


You can replace the old drive with similar 2.5 7mm SATA 5400rpm harddrive up to 1TB capacity.


You can check for compatible OEM part here in parts lookup.

Compatible tab and filter Commodity list to harddrive would give you several choices and it does not have to be same brand but get the same size.


Here is the hardware manual that can help you with the steps along with the parts list of harddrive (page 87-88 item17).


I hope this helps answer your query.
