Introdução

32 GB for a laptop is not much. Contrary to popular belief, upgrading this laptop's SSD is not actually that difficult- it does however mean that you give up your internal WiFi card. As an owner of this laptop, I've fought the Windows 8 and 10 WiFi drivers and was glad to have it gone. My current setup includes a 250GB SSD and an external WiFi card. This guide is designed to help you get ready to do the same!

I will get around to refining it some more if more people are interested in the process.

  8. You'll notice that there is a large gap for the WWAN card and no M.2 connection. It is possible to extend the mPCIe card and remove the WiFi card completely. Another option might be to purchase a board with an M.2 WWAN card and swap it out with an SSD. Unfortunately these are quite rare.

  11. A common issue might be heat dissipation, so it's good practice to remove the stock thermal paste and replace it with better quality. I also recommend adding heat pads to the bottom of the copper heatsink where the RAM chips sit.

half-width mSATA SSD available in boot?

basicmail3 - Responder

Questo è il problema!!!

Sicuro che tale scheda possa funzionare al Boot del PC.

Bisognerebbe provare potresti dire, 53 $ per la scheda da 64 Gb + 20-30 $ per una penna USB WiFi, tot 80-90 $, e se poi non parte?

bye

That is the question!!!

Sure that this card will work at Boot the PC.

You should try to say, $ 53 for 64 GB card + 20-30 $ for a WiFi USB stick, tot 80-90 $, and if not then part?

bye

Non ci fai vedere come è questa scheda SSD da mettere al posto del modulo WiFi

E poi questa scheda half-width mSATA SSD è possibile farla partire al boot?

E neppure so dove trovarle

Do not you show us how this SD card to put in place the WiFi module.

I've never seen nor know where to find them.

And then this half-width mSATA SSD card, you can start it at boot?

I already have a wi-fi card and I ordered hard drive 120Gb for 53$ . 20 days I'll write how it works or not

Make sure that you order an *PCIe* mini half-width or full-width (buy or make an extension bracket) and you have the current BIOS (HP sometimes whitelists cards).

Be forewarned- Not all mSATA cards will play nice with this slot. I personally recommend the Samsung PM830 128GB SSD HDD Mini PCIe from Amazon for only $40. Word of wisdom, you may have to reconnect the battery for Windows to recognize it.
