Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

Hi all,

 

I just took a look through the parts lists and the FRU number for the P53 2.5" HD cable is 02DM546 listed under "cables internal"p53hdcable.PNGp53hdcable

 

 

The options team have been made aware of the points made in this discussion and will be looking into potential resolutions. At this stage I have no further details nor time line and am therefore unable to offer any expectations for that resolution.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

Aren't FRUs Field Replaceable Units? If so, can these be sold to the pubic? Thanks for the post. I'd like to say again that Lenovo has been fantastic in helping resolve this matter.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

Hello,

 

Most parts eventually show up for sale online.  If this is a newly-announced part, it make take some time for inventory to arrive in the channel.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

I'm interested in this part as well. I'd like to reuse an SSD I had in the W541.

 

I can find the part online with pictures via link below, but I can't order it? Maybe I should just order an M.2 drive.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

If you have a P53 with an RTX graphics card, you do not have the option of installing a 2.5"drive.


P53 XEON 2276 BIOS 1.18 OLED UHD 4K Multi-touch display, 96GB RAM, RTX5000, RAID 1, 1TB x 2 Samsung PM981, 1TB PM981, WWAN
P70 XEON 1505, BIOS 2.32, 4k Display, 64GB, M3000M NVIDIA GPU, RAID1 1TB Samsung PM981 PCIe-NVMe SSD x 2, 2x Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD. EM7455 WWAN

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

No RTX graphics here. I think I'll install a new Samsung 970 Evo Plus, and ignore the 2.5 drive.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

What are the chances something like this is compatible:

I'm not even sure what the right cable could should look like, let alone whether it's safe to try out

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

I have a P53 coming next week with 2 SSD and 1 HD installed at the factory.  If pics would help, let me know.

Re: Thinkpad P53 Storage kit

Hello everyone,

 

I got tired of trying to find the part number of a storage kit to order for a P53 and did not want to order something I was not sure would work. I needed my laptop asap so, I ordered a laptop with a 1TB disk drive install at the factory. Here is a series of pictures I took that shows the installation of the drive. The last picture shows you the label on the cable.

 

Hope this could help anyone with the question of what is needed to install a HDD in a P53.
