T440 m.2 upgrade questions, possible to add internal battery?

I have what appears to be a msata and a m.2 slot.

 

The msata has a Intel dual band wireless card in it.

 

The slot to the left looks like a m.2 slot with nothing in it.  Will any 2242 ssd fit in it or does it have to be single sided.

 

Also the laptop has no internal battery just a spacer. Is it possible to add a battery to this model? There is no 3rd m.2 slot under the internal battery spacer, can this be added to the t440?

 

Laptop is the standard t440 (not the s or p)

The battery can be added.  A 2242 format SSD can also be added

The parts list for your machine:

 The smart card sub is O4X3827.

 Maybe Richk can further comment.

 

M2 or wwan in wwan slot

M2 underneath the battery (on machines without smart card) 16GB cache?

Wlan in m2 slot

Further discovery from hardware maintenance manual, page 75,

SSD swap in WWan slot,  shows a 2 prong item(standard SSD), not a  m2.2242 slot (3 prong).

The under the battery slot appears to be 3 prong m2.2242.  

 Perhaps you can add standard SSD in WWAN slot and add cache 16GB m2.2242 under the battery.

Help Richk!

You cab have EITHER a WWAN card or an SSD in the WWAN slot.  You cannot have both

Re: T440 m.2 upgrade questions, possible to add internal battery?

Hello,

I have a 16GB SATA SSD, 2242 connector on my laptop. S/N: PF02Q50E
I would like to remove the hard drive 16GB SSD and plug in a new one on connector 2242 disk 126gb or 256gb hard drive. Then Install Windows 10 Enterprise Operating System on it. Does nothing interfere with this change? Can the motherboard only support 16GB disk? Take a specific drive model? Please write back. Thank you

Welcome to the forum!

 

As long as it's a 2242 M.2 SSD it should work without issues. I don't have a T440 but I installed a 256GB 2242 SSD in my L540 (same generation as yours) and it works like a charm.

 

I understand you plan to do a clean install, I would remove the 2.5" standard drive first, then install W10 and then attach the drive back after the installation procedure is finished.

 

Regards
