Planning to upgrade system g510 with pci express mini card SSD

2016-01-28, 20:24 PM

Hello,

 

I have recently noticed my 1TB drive is not giving performance as expected.

Performance on windows 10 was terrible and i had to downgrade back to windows 8.

 

i am planning to add Samsung 850 EVO 120 GB mSATA 2-Inch SSD into pci express mini card slot and load OS on SSD and keep 1tb hdd too.

has anyone done such upgrade on G510?

HI jigargajra , 

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

The PCI Express Mini Card mentioned for this model supports : • Wimax / WIFI × 1• SSD × 1  (page 29HMM)

So your plan would work , sacrificing your wifi functionality .

 

For further reference : ( this thread previously discussed options) 

 

- To install Windows on the SSD, you can either clean install a retail copy or migrate the OS from the HDD to the SSD.

 

Guides:

- OS Migration (using Paragon Backup & Recovery Home)

Disk Cloning (using Macrium Reflect)

 

On those discussion , you can also read on other options for SSD added to your unit. 

 

Hope this answered your query on your planned upgrade .

 

 

Regards

Hi Spidey101,

 

"

as per the manual, there are 2 slots available.

first is used by WiFi card and other pci express mini slot should be empty.

 

I think both WiFi and SSD should work fine.

Hi jigargajra , 

 

 

I don't have the specific machine number here.

But if you had already physically checked it yourself then you are good to go then. 

 

Using this Guides would help you cloning:

- OS Migration (using Paragon Backup & Recovery Home)

Disk Cloning (using Macrium Reflect)

 

Best that you also create your recovery media and data backup too.

 

 

Goodluck on your endeavors.

Hope this post helped you decide on your upgrade plan. 

I am still looking for someone that have already tried your planned set up specific to this model.

 

Regards
