Upgrading the Hard Drive in a Yoga 300-11LBY

Hi,

Im new here but need some help or advice,I would like to install a 240GB SSD into my Yoga 300-11LBY, hovever I need a HHD cable B Flex 3 - 1120 Part number 5C10J08424 I got that off the manual on line, but cant find anyone in the UK who supplies this Lenovo part or is there a simlar part I can install that would work from a simlar notebook.

Now if you can't upgrade the notebook how do you install Windows 10 as I only have a 20GB hard drive install with 4.35 GB space available which is not enough to install Windows 10.

Welcome to the forums Harry!

 

As per the datasheet, you cannot have ssd on your laptop since it’s not compactable with Yoga 300. However, it supports up to 64GB eMMC or up to 1TB HDD or up to 500GB SSHD.

 

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
