Y500: replace SSD Cache drive

2013-04-15, 10:57 AM

I have a Y500 with the 16GB cache drive.  I want to upgrade the 16GB cache drive to something a lot larger and install Ubuntu on that as a bootable drive.  After removing the back cover I do not see anything obvious, can you direct me?  Is the 16GB drive a standard form factor? Thanks in advance

 

Moderator note: added model to subject.

It's right under the back cover on the lower right corner.

 

Looks like this:
