Install SSD on Z580 (Sata and windows 8)

Hello i have a Lenovo z580. (Product ID: 2151JAG)

 

I hope this question will help another users.

 

I want to sustitute the 500GB HD that are built in with a new SSD disk of 500GB too.

The old HD will go to the DVD slot and the SSD unit will have the Operating system (Windows 8)

 

Need i make any changes in the BIOS to support the SSD starting the system from it ?

The SATA controler for this model is SATA 2 or SATA 3?

 

Edd.

No. The changes will automatically be detected and reflected in the configuration.

hi eddrishh,

 

In addition to what LenBlazer have mentioned, if you migrate or clone the preloaded Win8 OS on the stock HDD to the SSD and then make the SSD as the boot drive, you don't need to change any settings in the BIOS. If you have a UEFI BIOS though and you want to install Windows 8 in legacy mode then you will need to turn off UEFI.

For the SATA controller, this data specs sheet indicates that the Z580, type: 2151 series uses a SATA 3 (6.0 Gbps) controller integrated on the chipset (Intel® HM76 Express Chipset). You can verify this by installing HWInfo or similar utility then look under the PCI Bus.

Hope these answer your questions.
