Adding a third party Solid State Drive

Hi,

 

I know that it is possible to replace my HDD with a LEnovo branded SSD but can I use a generic Crucial SSD? I only ask because I'm not sure if Lenovo use any sort of proprietory connection or if it's just a standard SATA connection?

I wish thinking of purchasing the above from Crucial, which, according to Crucial themselves, is Compatible (http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=ThinkPad%20Edge-15inch%20%28Intel%20DDR3%29&pt=...) with the ThinkPad Edge 15 Intel Edition.

 

What do you guys think? As far as I can tell it should work.

 

Not sure if I'd need to replace my existing drive though, or if I can just use the SSD as an aditional drive (ideally I'd like to use it as an additional drive and re-install the operating system onto thr SSD and use my current SATA drive as storage and the likes)

 

I'd appreciate any input!

 

Thanks

Re: Adding a third party Solid State Drive

Hi,
Lenovo Notebooks are using standard connectors for hdd. there should be no physical connection problem.
As far as I know ssds are presented as standard drives to the bios, so I do not expect any problem here.
But I never had a ssd in my notebooks!!!

greetings,

torsten
