Here is what the Yoga 2 11 looks like under the hood.
Here is the hard drive with the cable connecting it to the motherboard known as a SFF-8784 Edge Connector
I posted these just to help with visualizing what exactly is going on. So do I either need a ssd that connects via a SFF-8784 or a cable that connects the motherboard to a standard sata ssd?

Thanks for all the pictures.
The connector on the motherboard is definetely the same as the Y2 13 !
You keep telling us to obtain the WD version of the cable, while the HMM is stating to get the Seagate version.
"I replaced the Western Digital 500 GB 5mm drive. "
What I see on the picture is clearly a Seagate drive? or is this one not the one you removed from your 2 11?

Caffeinator, Thanks previously for answering my PM. I had another question since I am having issues cloning. I think I should go with a clean install after all the issues I have been having. What did you do to clean install? Did you have to order install discs? Did you use a windows 8 image from somewhere else? Thanks.
