Re: Upgrading Hardware(U310 or U410)

Ok i found out my laptop was U410. 

Actually i want to upgrade hard disc to at least 128 gb SSD, but i can't find any 128GB from your recommandation,  is that mean the limit is 64 gb?

Re: Upgrading Hardware(U310 or U410)

Hi kyd9019 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

For the U410 , there are 2 storage location set for upgrades. 

1. SATA HDD (can be upgraded to a SATA SSD )

2. mSATA  SSD  (* For the sole purpose of supporting Intel Smart Response Technology for caching )

Above mentioned SSD mSATA additional storage is smaller due to caching purpose (thread for reference)

 

For practical purpose of the upgrade , I think upgrading the SATA HDD to SATA SSD would be better that would allow you bigger storage and faster data transfer rate (similar to this) as the primary drive.

Video reference here .

 

Manual indicates only manufacturer built in parts and may not reflect possible modifications that can be done nowadays. Update us it would work best for you . 

 

Regards

Hi kyd9019 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Great that you have now your probable options for SSD upgrade .

 

If in case you need the recovery image , you may be able to order it thru the tech support if you did not manage to create one previously or follow this guide to download an installer similar to your original system so that the OEM product key gets automatically updated .  

You may install drivers intended for your model from the support site

 

Goodluck to all your endeavors.

 

Cheers
