IdeaPad Z710 replace optical drive with stock SSHD

A couple of years ago I replaced the 1TB SSHD that came with the laptop with a 240GB SSD but the computer store I bought the laptop from didn't have caddies in stock so I use it as an external HDD. I called yesterday and they have a fitting caddy now but the tech support guy told me that there's some sort of an issue with Z710s and caddies so they don't want to install it and I've also read online about some bootloop issues that people got when they tried on their own. 


I really want to use my 1TB SSHD instead of the optical drive so I'll get full speed because there's some sort of a problem with my USB 3.0 ports and the hard drive keeps disconnecting all the time so I've been using it on 2.0


Does anyone have any experience or tips? I don't want to buy the caddy and they find out it doesn't work.

Thanks in advance!
