L14 Compatible with 2.5" SATA or M.2 SATA Hard drives?

2020-09-02, 18:36 PM

Hi,

 

The custom hard drive options for the L14 include

500 GB 7200rpm HDD, as well as 1TB and 2TB options.

 

I'm wondering if those are SATA hd's and what form factor they are?

 

Would it be possible to choose "None" for the first hard drive, and "128 GB PCIe SSD 2242" for the second hard drive - and then remove the PCIe and install a 2.5" or M.2 SATA drive of my own?

The 2.5 inch options are SATA, the m.2 drives are NVMe.
