Did you need any sort of spacer or insert to secure the SSD/HDD fully or was it ok without it? did you use a 7mm drive or 9.5mm? thanks for the reply.

no. the caddy has some screws for the hdd. the laptop came with the 7 mm drive but you can put a 9.5 mm drive because the caddy is 12.5 mm like the dvd-rw.
