Y510P - no SSD slot

2014-07-10, 10:34 AM

I have an Y510p laptop and I am not pleased with the hdd performance, so I wanted to add an SSD, but the slot is literally missing:

 

what am I supposed to do?

I know that this laptop supports only M.2 SSD, and I am ok with thatCapture.JPG

Solved! See the solution

That ssd card is inserted into the connector. That connector I believed is the slot.

I guess you can't install any M2 SSD without the connector. I've read somewhere that somebody installed the connector into his unit but it is still a no go.

Of course I can't

The question is, what should I do?

Am I supposed to sent the device to warranty?

Is the unit supposed to include that M2 connector/slot when you made the order? Call Lenovo to inquire about it.
