Re: IdeaCentre 720 AMD Ryzen 7 - Upgrading RAM and SSD

My initial probelm was that I had a brain fart and totally forgot to format the drive.

Re: IdeaCentre 720 AMD Ryzen 7 - how to add M.2 SSD (970 Evo)

Can someone please confirm...can you insert ONE or TWO m.2 drives? It appears like you can place two closely sandwiched on top of each other...I'm just not sure if that is supposed to work? Thx

Only one per slot. And it only has one slot.

Re: IdeaCentre 720 AMD Ryzen 7 - how to add M.2 SSD (970 Evo)

I'm leaning toward disabling/removing the DVD drive and using its SATA port on the board for a 2.5" SSD since there are a few on sale today. There's no way to do this without removing the graphics card, right? It seems to be blocking access to the area the SATA ports are in. Thanks in advance for any help.

You shouldn't need to do anything with the SATA port. Just unplug the SATA cable (and power cable) from the DVD drive, remove the drive, and then go in reverse with the SSD.

Ah, I hadn't thought of that for whatever reason. Maybe I was assuming the cables would somehow be different. Thanks.

It isn't a SATA drive it shows up somewhere else.
