Hard Drive questions for Ideapad S340-15IWL!

Hello!

 

I have an Ideapad S340-15IWL with a 256gb ssd.

I want to add another hard drive.

Can I add another SSD or  can I only add an HDD? ( the platform specification sheet seems to infer that can only add HDD)

Is there any instructions or videos on how I would physically add a hard drive to this exact model?

I have found a hardware maintenance manual that explains how to remove parts but not how to add parts.

Do I need any extra connectors or converters?

Is there anything else I should know about picking out the hard drive besides what the platform specification sheet says?

 

This is what the Platform Specifications says:

Storage:  Up to 2 drives (one HDD and one M.2 SSD): ● HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high, 5400rpm ● M.2 2242 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s ● M.2 2280 SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 4, 32Gb/s ● M.2 SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s (e.g. xxxGB SSD M.2

 

I can usually find this information, but I'm having trouble with this model.

Thanks for any help!

Re: Hard Drive questions for Ideapad S340-15IWL!

Assuming hat your system currently has a M.2 SSD installed, you could add a 2.5" x 7mm SATA SSD as a storage drive, but the system only has one M.2 SSD slot available.     The HDD requires a bracket to secure it (FRU/part number: 5B40U61561). but I cannot find a source for that bracket online, so you may have to MacGyver a way to secure it. 

 

The bracket is shown on page 43 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual and in the image below
