V510-15IKB (80WQ005CGE) + M.2 SATA SSD

I have model 80WQ005CGE,  which have 1Tb SATA drive and empty M.2 port inside. So, can I install SATA M.2 drive (like Samsung EVO 850) as a boot device and 1Tb HDD as secondary?

Re: V510-15IKB (80WQ005CGE) + M.2 SATA SSD

Hi Alex218,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


As per product specifications:


Storage :

Some: M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm or 9.5mm high


Replacement guide are also provided with the hardware manual here as well as recommended m.2 SATA SSD among the FRU list. Parts lookup for Model type 80WQ also show compatible M.2 SATA SSD here.


You can set up the SSD as boot although most dual storage have found more success keeping the HDD as primary and SSD for frequently accessed files and programs. Best not to remove the HDD image yet not unless that you are sure of the SSD boot functionality. Related discussion here.


Hope this helps answer your query.
