Re: Upgrading Internal Hard Drive (Thinkpad Edge E520 Model Number 1143CTO)

I'm planning on upgrading my existing 320Gb internal hard drive to a 1Tb Internal Hard Drive.

 

Would a 1Tb Hard Drive with a SATAII Interface be the correct one to use.

 

Can anyone suggest what is the easiest way of replacing this drive?

 

Kind Regards,

just remove the bottom plate, and remove the hdd from the laptop (held down by two screws) to the laptop chassis. The hdd is in a caddy held down by 4 screws.

As long as the hdd is 2.5 inch and 9.5 mm thick then you would be okay.

The SATA interface is SATAIII (6.0 Gbps), which can operate at SATAI and SATAII mode, depending on the hdd you have.
