The 330 S that I bought in a crunch only has a 128gb M2 SSD. I am wanting to leave that as is for my boot drive and add a additional SSDHDD. I would like to know, before I take the back off, is the HDD frame/mount in place or will I need to order the frame from Lenovo before I go ahead with the install. Also will the BIOS automatically recognize the new HDD? I have tried to use Lenovo Chat support to get answers to this and they do not seem to understand my questions......Thanx in advance

Checking the storage specifications on page 27 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual it shows 2.5-inch, 7 mm SATA II up to 2 TB HDD. The HDD bracket is purchased separately. The certified HDD bracket part number is 5B40R07643 which can also be found on page 72 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual. Once you add the HDD, the BIOS should automatically recognize it.
You can watch the videos on Parts Removal and Replacement here https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht505031 (look for 330s under the IdeaPad tab).
Hope this helps.
