T510 recovery disk and SSD

2011-04-11, 19:06 PM

I just accquired a T510 with a 320 HDD, I am replacing it with a 80 GB SSD.  I have the recovery disk.  Can I use them?  Or the recovery media specific to mechanical hard drive?

As long as there is enough space on the drive you will have no issues. I installed a 120GB SSD the other day and used the recovery discs to restore.

Hi slam5,

 

Sure you can, and they're not specific to mechanical HDDs.


Hope this helps.
