M710Q-replace M.2 drive for SSD

Hello community.  I have a new M710Q tiny PC.  It has a M.2 drive.  I want to replace this M.2 drive for a regular 2.5" SSD.  I am thinking that all is need is the sata drive cable & drive tray (already have SSD).  this sound right?  they would be # 18 & #20 in this picture.  Let me know peeps, thanks mucho.

Hi pellerhead,


Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.

 

By looking at the service training video only SATA FFC cable (00XL211) and 2.5" SSD is required. But you can't replace the M.2 drive with 2.5" SSD you can add one where regular 2.5" HDD goes.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Thank you Prabhansh. Do you know what the FRU # is for the 2.5" drive bay?

Here's what you are looking for - HDD cage for Tiny4 AVC -(01EF683).
