ThinkPad S540 hardware question

Hi all,


A friend of mine owns a ThinkPad S540, but her hdd died recently, so we decided to buy a new one. So I wanna ask, can somebody tell me how many slots does the S540 have and what is the type of those slots (Sata 3 or M.2). Because I want to put an SSD for the OS and HDD for the storage and programs if there is more than one slot. 
Thank you Smiley Happy

Hi Ogioto, welcome to the forums.


I don't have that machine, but I think that the best way to know about this is to go to the support site of this model, and check under "Documentation" the Hardware Maintenance Manual.


Here I found it.  Check it out to see if it gives you a better idea on what does machine has on the inside.


There is also the system service parts documents that helps you see a ripped off view of the machine.


I hope this helps.
