Lenovo N22: Hard Drive Upgrade

 

image.jpg

 

 

I know it is possible to upgrade the hard drive but I am reading about a M.2 SATA drive but not sure if my hard drive is a M.2. Please tell me. 

 

 

If the image doesn't show it's a seagate momentus thin 500GB hard drive taken out of a HP laptop.

Re: Lenovo N22: Hard Drive Upgrade

Hi AustinJaymes , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

If you are referring to a Lenovo N22 Winbook (Lenovo) then as per hardware specification (page 27):

Storage : eMMC: 32 GB/64 GB   and M.2 SSD: 128 GB as options.

Similarly discussed in this review  and this video .

N22 Chromebook has only the embedded EMMC storage and not upgradable.

 

Your SATA harddrive 2.5 seagate would be bigger than the M.2 card and has a diffrent card interface.

You can use the bigger SATA as an external pluggable drive instead using a harddrive enclosure.

 

Hope this help answer your query. 

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo N22: Hard Drive Upgrade

is there a list of compatible SSDs? which ons can they accept? it seems there are 3 different interfaces for M2.  I just tried a samsung 960 EVO and it did not detect in the BIOS or in windows, so i returned it.  i would like to know exactly which SSDs are compatible, or at least which types i am looking for NMVE, SATA, etc.  there isnt any info on which one it is in the hardware PDF

Hi fiveseven15,

 

Greetings.

 

Checking on the hardware manual here on page 56, showing recommended Liteon CV3-8D128 part number 5SD0L02318 m.2 SATA.

 

On similar discussion here with a fellow community member, PaulBunion was successful with upgrading his N23 here with Samsung 850EVO card256GB M.2 as a choice rather than the PCIe  Samsung 960evo.

 

I would update a reply on your previous started topic here for additional reference.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo N22: Hard Drive Upgrade

Is it common for Lenovo N22 hard drives to die after the warranty expires?  I purchased my Lenovo in Oct 2016, in March 2018 my solid state or hard drive died.  Is this a common problem and what would it cost to get it repaired?
