Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Hi Sakina28,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

If yours is a Yoga 920 13IKB, specification for storage as per HMM page 26 shows: 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB, NGFF (PCI-E). Therefore, upgrade is possible for 512GB to 1TB M.2 SSD / PCIe 3.0 x 4.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

The product code is 'LEN80Y7003JMX'. Not sure if its 131KB. But these are the specs: 

  • Intel® Core ™ i5-8250 processor
  • 13.9 "Full HD touchscreen
  • 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD

Can you upgrade on this one?

Hi Sakina28,

 

Yes, you can upgrade your current 256 to 512 GB SSD M.2 PCIe storage.

 

It does show that this is a Yoga 920-13IKB model 80Y7 as shown here in the parts look up. If you click on compatible under configuration and solid state under configuration on the page lookup, it would show OEM recommended 512 GB SSD PCIE m.2 for your machine. 

 

Regards

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Yes, you can, I've done it. You'll need to remove the whole motherboard as the storage slot is located under the motherboard, but it's doable with the right parts. 

 

Let me know if you need any help.

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Hi, I know this thread is old, but I have come across it in my search on how to upgrade the SSD on my Yoga 920. Could you possibly outline how to do it? Any help will be much appreciated!

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Hi there! You'll need to take out the whole motherboard because the SSD slot is located on the back of the motherboard. Here's a video that shows you how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0segz9sLiyw

 

You'll first have to remove the bottom cover (it uses T6 screws). Then, you'll have to disconnect the battery. In the video I linked, the battery is removed, but you really don't need to remove it -- just disconnecting it is sufficient. 

 

As an additional reference, here's the hardware manual for the Yoga 920: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga920-13ikb_yoga920-13ikbglass_hmm_201709.pdf

 

If you need any help along the way, feel free to let me know!

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Hi Eric,

Thank you for the resources that you have provided me with. They will be very helpful,

I also have another question, which is how do I put it all back together? Also is there anything i need to do on the device before even starting the process of swapping the SSD?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you!

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

To put it back together, you just do the reverse. Put the motherboard back, screw everything back in, reconnect all the connectors, put the back cover back on, and you're good to go. 

 

Before you swap the SSD, you need to clone your current SSD to your new one. That way your operating system and files will transfer over. 

 

Here's a guide on how to do that: https://www.pcgamer.com/how-to-clone-a-hard-drive-or-ssd/

Re: Updrage storage in yoga 920

Hi,

Thanks for the advice. I was watching the videos and saw the person disconnecting and reconnecting the connectors. I don't have much hardware experience, so I was wondering whether there is any special tool to be used for reconnecting the connectors or whether it is as easy as pushing the connector in.

Thanks
