Add a second SSD storage on Ideapad 320 (80XL000ALM)

2020-09-19, 5:15 AM

I want to add more storage to my lenovo equipment, but I don't know if it will support 1tb of ssd, apart from what it already has, it is 1tb of HDD.

I already looked here but it doesn't specify anything: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/ideapad320-14iap_320-15iap_320-14ast_320-15ast_320-15abr_320-15abrtouch_hmm_201705.pdf

It would be very helpful to me, thank you.

The only way to add the 2nd drive in your laptop MTM 80XL000ALM is to install that in place of the optical drive bay. You have to replace the drive dummy by new dummy ODD for 2nd HDD. Also, additional interface card is needed - HDD board for 2nd HDD. Their Lenovo p/ns (FRU) and images are below:

 

Additional drive should be 2.5" SATA.

 

Other options to add the m.2 SSD aren't available since the systemboard in MTM 80XL000ALM isn't equipped by the m.2 connectors.

Okay, I understand. But isn't there an extra storage limit supported? It can be the amount of storage that is, right ?. I plan to add 1 tb more, from a 2.5 "SSD Thanks for having responded!

1 TB is a common capacity presently, no problem with this disk in your laptop. At least the 2.5" drive bay supports 2 TB drives. For example https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/IdeaPad/ideapad_320_15_Intel?M=80XL03FVUK
