Help adding SSD to Flex 15 using HDD caddy and One Key Recovery

2015-02-14, 17:06 PM

Hello,

 

Can anyone give me a little guidance on how I can add an SSD to my Lenovo Flex 15 by replacing my optical drive with a HDD caddy? I want to use the SSD as the boot device and use the exhisting 1 TB HDD(It's not a hybrid drive) as a storage drive.I was hoping to be able to use the One Key Recovery tool as that is the only way I have of installing Windows 8.1 since the laptop did not come with a recovery CD. Anyone know of any step-by-step guides or anything that could help me get this done?

 

Thanx for any help you can give

i have a flex 15 but mine as the drive with ssd all you have to do is replace the drive you have with a drive that has ssd one,
