Drive caddy needed for Y550

2009-10-04, 15:29 PM

Does anyone have the part number for the HDD Drive caddy for the Y550?  I'd like to have a spare drive for development/testing/noodling (especially with Windows 7)...

 

I can't seem to find any way in the bios to boot from the eSATA connection. 

 

Also, if anyone has the price and phone number/web site to order it that would be greatly appreciated also.

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Hello Steve,

 

another way is to add a 2nd drive via the optical drive bay.

 

if you do a search for "Y550 Caddy" or "Y550 2nd drive caddy", you will find companies that offer such a solution.

Just today I received a drive caddy I ordered from ebay. I have a Lenovo Y550 but ordered the caddy for a Y510, hoping it would fit.

 

It did fit. The caddy looks slightly different, but its size is the same and it fits fine. The lid closes over it with no issues. It's great. Cost me $17 I think, including shipping. Now I can swap OS X and Windows 7 back and forth pretty easily, without handling so many screws.

 

I see one on sale at ebay for $9.88 now, so you will be paying less than I did. Bummer for me.
