Can I add additional drive to my Ideapad 330

Hello Team,


Can I add SSD to my laptop while using HDD too? I don't want to remove HDD and wanted to use SSD like most of them use SSD for OS? If so, which SSD is supported.


My model : Lenovo Ideapad 330-15IKB 81DE0088IN 15.6-inch Full HD Laptop (8th Gen I5-8250U/8GB DDR4/2TB HDD/2GB Graphics)

Hi uvkarthik94,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Checking with the hardware manual, there is no mention of SSD m.2 for parts assembly. Adding m.2 PCIe NVMe SSD may not be an option but best that you physically check your board for any available slots.


You systemboard is PN 5B20R19899 MB L 81DE I58250U RADEON530_2G D4G NOK as image shown below. The circle may be an option to test with a spare although we are not sure it is electronically active on yours.

The encircled slots are originally intended for optane memory boards.


I hope this helps answer your query.
