Ideapad 3 15IL05 HDD addition problem

2021-04-13, 4:18 AM

I recently got the Lenovo Ideapad 3 15IL05 that comes with 128 GB SSD, i3 and 4GB RAM.


I want to add a 1 TB HDD, and upgrade the RAM by adding 4 GB.

  1. I do not know where to add the HDD as I dont see specific space/slot available. Pls see photo enclosed. Is this under the battery? How do I place the additional HDD? How should I connect the cable? There are no videos and manuals that I could find.

  2. I understand I need a special cable NBX0001S900 or 5C1)S30052 with a HDD Caddy. I'm planning to order this but I want to make sure I can add the HDD in my laptop.


I'm a newbie and hope I can get some help here.
