M93p: Motherboard SATA drive connectors

2021-07-20, 20:43 PM

I have a Lenovo M93p Desktop PC.  It came with a DVD and SSD drive, and I'd like to add a large HDD.  I have a 3rd set of cables and I'd like to know which drive should go to which motherboard connector.


I realize the M93p is likely out of support, but I'm hoping someone can show me where to find a picture or diagram of the motherboard (which might still be in production).

Hello PickerDad!



We recommend tested compatible parts for your machine and you can check this on your end through this link; https://support.lenovo.com/ph/en/partslookup#/

Provide the MTM or the serial number and filter the commodity type.


Anything that is not listed here is something we can not guarantee its compatibility and full functionality when installed.


You can refer to the hardware manual here: https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/thinkcentre_pdf/m83m93p_hmm.pdf


Or this parts replacement video; https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht505031


Hope that helps.
