Second hard drive installation to Ideapad Z710

Hello to all,

I would like to ask if it's possible to install a second hard drive to my Ideapad Z710, in the place of my DVD, using a socket and if it's possible, how it works. 

Thank you all in advance!

Hi there, Lao          -


Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.


I don't have personal experience with this laptop.  From the PSREF page and Hardware Maintenance Manual it looks like it takes a 7 or 9.5mm HDD and doesn't have an mSATA or M.2 SSD slot.


When you ask support or sales what devices are "supported" you will usually get an answer that includes parts that Lenovo provides and has tested with, not what a customer could install.


I'd expect that you could swap in a 7mm SSD, but I'd rather we'd hear from another member who has actually done it.  In the meantime you might find the base specs and Hmm useful:


Update us how it goes.
