Install 7mm ssd on yoga 3 or carbon x1?

2015-06-23, 20:03 PM

Hi,

 

I have already bought a crucial m500, which is a 7mm 2.5inch SSD.

 

I wonder if it would fit in a yoga 3, or x1 carbon? Since these models are ver slim...

 

Would I have to remove anything from the package of the SSD to make it fit?

Tnx in advance.

Solved! See the solution

Hello and welcome,

 

The Yoga 3 11 and the X1 use an m.2 SSD.  They don't have a place for a 2.5" SSD.

The Yoga 3 14 has a 2.5" slot but it's 5mm.

I have successfully installed the disk 7mm to my yoga 3 14.
The problem in mounting the disc. Since the drive is not intermeddle 7mm thickness had to tear tape from the bottom of the lid. Bolting not allow to right fix the drive. Be attentive to plastic insert! I had to put hard upside down and without bolting to the hull. I've been thinking about it a long time. But the bottom cover is very tight and it presses the disc firmly held, even without bolting. I doubt very much that the 100 grams disk can drive somewhere in this construction.
I use the computer a few weeks and I have no problem with the disk.

Thank you very much!

So if I open the casing of the SSD, do you think I can just put in the PCB and get it to work?
What do you mean that you had to put it upside down?

7mm drive has a sides. In words, it is difficult to explain. I think if you do according to my instructions, everything will be fine.
