ThinkPad S540 hardware question

2016-04-25, 12:38 PM

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 :)

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.
