I'm not sure, but I do not. The sleekbook supports a 32GB (or 24 GB) mSATA SSD pn # 698524-001. A solid disk may not work on this laptop series that I've seen a few posts that SSDS have not been recognized on sleekbooks.

    Is my mid-2012 13 "MacBook Pro compatible with PCIe SSD upgrade? I want to remove the internal optical disk and edit it in the PCIe SSD, so that I have 2 internal storage. Going to do?

    Your mention of an optical drive tells me you have a MBP non-retine.  PCI and PCIe SSDS are NOT compatible with your MBP.  You can install a card standard 2.5 "SSD in your MBP and still experience a significant increase in performance.  I suggest OWC SSD and Crucial.


  • Portege R500 - RAM and disk SSD upgrade


    I have a PORTEGE R500 bought in 2007, SERIES NO.48025469H.

    I have obvious problems with VISTA and WINDOWS 7. The two do not work well, because he seems to have a memory. I wonder if I can increase the memory and replace the drive with an SSD. I want to keep this laptop because it is perfect for all my needs.

    Thank you

    According to the specifications of the laptop your laptop can handle with GB of RAM, but has been bundled with 2 GB memory is not possible.

    What about SSD? SSD upgrade is possible and you can use 256GB SSD for upgrade. After this system will be much faster, and you will certainly more performance and speed.

  • SSD upgrade for Satellite Pro P200 (PSPB7A-01000J) - possible?

    Hello world

    I had a Satellite Pro P200 for 3 years and more. It came with Vista Business pre-installed, but I have successfully installed Windows 7 a few months ago.

    A few months ago, I replaced the C drive in my office with a Solid State Drive and now he sings - program start and loading of the system is much faster than before.

    Now I'm wondering if the SSD upgrade even could be done to my trusty P200 and if yes, what brand/model of SSD could be better. It should be 128 GB or 256 GB maybe.

    Anyone else been in this way? The results? Pitfalls?

    All responses appreciated.

    Thank you.



    I think that it should be possible.
    You must use a SATA SSD drive since the laptop supports the SATA controller.
    To be honest, I never tried to upgrade the laptop with a SSD but SSD is not very different from the HARD drive and normally should not be a problem.
    In some cases, an update of the firmware of SSD may be necessary but usually these firmware updates should be available on the SSD drive manufacturer support page.

  • 17 - k204tx: SSD upgrade.

    Hi, I have an SSD upgrade on my laptop. I was wondering if my model, a 17-k204tx has a slot m2 on the motherboard and if so, what size m2 cards it will accept? Or do I have to buy a standard 2.5 "disk instead?

    Yes, there a m2 slot. Here is the Service Manual:


    It is not easy to access. We had some users to post photos and if I remember correctly it is not necessary to remove and return on the motherboard, but that's what shows the manual. The m2 he uses is the size of SATA 2280 variety.

    See p. 67 of the manual. This video is also relevant:

  • W530 - choose what size SSD upgrade strategy?

    I still hesitate between two strategies of size SSD upgrade for my brand new W530.

    1. an (internal) SSD + a HARD drive (internal)

    • Put the original of the ultrabay DVD burner in an external enclosure (connected to the laptop with a USB cable SATA) and use when necessary
    • Put the original Toshiba HDD 500 GB of the main Bay in a shopping cart, then in housing as a backup drive-ultrabay
    • Buy a Crucial SSD m4 (512GB) for the main Bay and use it to drive to OS/programs and road data

    2. two SSDs (internal) + a HARD drive (external)

    • Put the original of the ultrabay DVD burner in an external enclosure (connected to the laptop with a USB cable SATA) and use when necessary
    • Put the original Toshiba HDD 500 GB in an external case (connected to the laptop with a USB cable SATA) and use it as a backup drive
    • Buy 2 m4 Crucial SSD (128 + 256 GB):

    -one in the main Bay as player of OS/programs (128 GB)

    -one in a basket, then in housing ultrabay as data drive (256 GB)

    I also want to let you know that a 512 GB SSD is a little more expensive than a 128 GB SSD + a 256 GB SSD. Also, I like to choose the best strategy of resistance, reliability and durabilty.

    Could you share with me the benefits & disadvantages for both strategies and tell me which is the best strategy for your point of view?

    Thanks for your help,



    I agree with the approach of @eos. I have configured my W520 on the same track. I have an mSATA SSD 256GB (a - Data), with a 750 GB HARD drive in the Bay of primary and a 500GB HDD in the Ultrabay slot.

    The mSATA SSD is my boot device, even if I sometimes start from one of the other disks when testing new configurations.

    The mSATA slot is SATA 2 don't bother me a bit. It's very fast. Sometimes, I put an mSATA SSD in an mSATA to the 2.5 enclosure and run in the Ultrabay SATA 3-speed housing. I'm hard pressed to notice the difference.

    You're better off using a partition of HARD drive for data for various reasons. On the one hand, at least write cycles committed SSDS, longer it will last. Second, if your system partition is lost, your data is still intact. Third, you can save a small partition of data rather than a larger combo partion.

    I love having the flexibility of two open bays using the mSATA offer slot - i.e. I sometimes swap in my optical drive in the Ultrabay slot, etc.

  • SSD upgrade/migrate inside 23 tilt of HP Envy TouchSmart?

    (model: 23-k001hk all-in-One)

    Hello all - asking for suggestions advice from wise and kind people on the best way - and operating instructions - for upgrading the speed of my current hdisk 1 TB + SSD 16 GB cache scheme of HP storage by one of these itineraries:

    1) upgrade the disk installed cache 16 GB SSD mSATA disk (limit Intel RST) 64 GB mSATA

    Why: I update regularly a slap (10-15GB) of data from the Agency.

    so given that the daily volume of modified files is comparable to 16 GB,

    I'm assuming that a larger cache will actually add value

    (2) install an SSD 'broad' to serve the main startup disk by replacing

    the existing hdisk of 1 TB (I use a tiny fraction of it) with a 2.5 SSD "

    with a suitable support (and deleting or disabling the 16 GB SSD disk cache)

    Thanks in advance for any advice on this point, HP does not have any information on that, nor any obvious way to access or review the settings of the RST (firmware?) used in their SSDcache + hDisk arrangement (Yes, tried Ctrl-I, the boot, etc.-no joy).

    -Rob in Hong Kong

    Hi WAWood,

    A late thank you for your advice. Based on this feedback and having discovered just that software ExpressCache 'hidden' on my system quietly stopped working after the upgrade to Windows 10 (and HP support does not currently have updated software ExpressCache for Windows 10), I decided to install a large SSD drive and use it as a boot drive.

    In the this could help other all-in-One HP Envy owners tilt, here is a summary of the steps that worked with obvious disclaimers that even if it worked for me, it is not a 'universal' solution and also that if you mess with the hardware/software of your system, you are of course on your own, without guarantees or responsibility for this author) :

    (also, my apologies for the format - in a hurry)


    HP Envy tilt (23-k001h model) running Windows 10

    Basic purpose:

    Change the original storage configuration:

    Hdisk (boot drive) 1 TB + 16 GB mSATA SSD cache ("linked" to the hdisk via ExpressCache)


    Hdisk (spare drive) 1 TB + new Samsung Evo 850 mSATA SSD 500 GB (as boot drive)


    Many, many "zippier" system: QuickStart, app launch, etc..


    Disable ExpressCache

    (HP Envy models tilt seem to use this supplement Windows 3 rd-party, instead of Intel RST):

    In my case, as my recent visit to Windows 10 has taken care of this for me (haha), I don't have to do;  Otherwise, I guess we should stop the ExpressCache service, uninstall the software from ExpressCache and/or drivers, then reboot - suggest you only look it up in the forums, because I can't offer my own experience on this one.

    Clear/unloading as much unnecessary data from drive C: (1 TB hdisk) as possible.

    The goal would be to have used space on C: be greatly below your 500 GB (or other) new drive (in my case, I cut the used space on the C: 100 GB).

    Also a good idea to run the defrag Windows on C:, as may be useful (necessary?) for the reduction of this partition in the next step

    Disk management Windows allows you to shrink the Windows partition (mapped as C

    Goal: you want a net size of all partitions on hdisk (Windows + hidden/recovery/system partitions) to be a little less than the actual size of your new SSD (my "500 GB" SSD was actually more as 465 GB)

    Warning: disk management can claim "not enough space" to shrink Windows (C when it's clearly not partition so - in my case, the problem was due to my Windows partition is not the last partition on the disk before the unallocated space (if any) - obviously this disrupts the management of disks.)  If so, you need to move partitions using a 3rd party soft as AOMEI (free app - has worked well for me) all for the Windows partition is the last partition on the hdisk, with unallocated space located immediately after the Windows partition.

    Result: when the dust settles, the partitions allocated on your hdisk must have a net size which is comfortably at less than the actual capacity of your new SSD (in my case, the partitions was 440 GB on a capacity 465 GB SSD).

    Physics card mSATA SSD upgrade

    • Power PC, unplug from the mains and remove the rear plastic cover:

  • Remove the metal shield covering the RAM:
  • Remove the metal shield covering the motherboard:
    • Locate/remove the 3 screws holding it down.
    • Lift on board as possible shielding at the booth of PC;
  • Locate the SSD of origin (see tiny map labeled as SanDisk or some of these) and remove 2 tiny screws to attach to the motherboard.
  • While keeping you constantly connected to the Earth (strap, touch metal chassis, etc.):
    • gently remove original SSD and save it in some static container (if upgrade fails and you want to restore the system to the original state of the material)
    • Gently insert the new card in lateral connector mSATA SSD,
    • and to the motherboard with the same 2 live
  • Replace the motherboard of armour, armour of RAM and plastic cover
  • Check the new SSD 'visible' to the BIOS:

    At first startup, use ESC to enter the BIOS settings, then check that BIOS 'sees' the new SSD as the original hdisk

    Clone all partitions on hdisk--> new SSD

    Start & connect to Windows and use Macrium Reflect (free) to clone all the partitions on hdisk for the new SSD - see large portico advice to:

    Do not forget:

    • Suggestion from the link above, you must first a Macrium recovery disk
    • You can clone * all * the partitions on the SSD's original hdisk

    Result: cloned partitions now visible on new SSD. may have little extra/no allocated space on SSD (can deal with that later)

    In the BIOS change the boot to new SSD drive

    Reboot PC, press ESC to enter the BIOS to change the boot order:

    • make the first boot drive in SSD
    • also suggest to disable booting from originals hdisk (night before you really start SSD)
    • Save the BIOS settings and exit the BIOS

    Make sure that you have started of SSD and clean the unwanted drive mappings

    Start & log Windows

    (the fact that you can reach this point means that you have passed the first test)

    Use Windows Disk Manager to

    * ensure that C: is mapped to your new SSD.

    * make sure that you can still see original hdisk, too

    * suggest remove you mappings of unnecessary letters drive

    (with the exception of the C: drive!) for all other partitions on hdisk or SSD

    Test through full reboot

    As a further test, do a reboot of Windows to make sure there are no problems with the start-up of SSD; again, once in Windows, use disk management to check again once your C: drive is the partition on the new SSD

    Optimizing Windows SSD

    There are several Windows setting changes that you should do when your primary/boot disk is an SSD, either:

    • If you have purchased a Samsung SSD, you can download/use their app "Samsung magician" to do so (see "Optimization of OS" section), or
    • Google "Optimizing windows 10 ssd" to find any number of guides to achieve this, such as:
    • Note: one of the most important changes are those related to mode AHCI (ability to GARNISH)
    • Note: some suggested parameters cannot be 100% essential, for example:
      • pagefile on SSD: some authors suggest no page on the DSS file, others say "keep" small'(?) "; most compelling advice I've seen are to retain the page file on the SSD, but let Windows manage the size; in all cases, should make sure that your system has * sufficient * RAM (8 GB and more) for your usage requirements.
      • 'leave free space' (aka overprovisioning): SSD experts suggest that current-technology SSDS, it is not necessary
      • "do not defrag": 10 Windows recognizes SSD and disable defrag automatically

    All the problems?

    Note that at this point, you still have your original hdisk with windows/data for a few days, so if this migration does not work, you can always go back by turning off the SSD and change the startup disk (in BIOS) originally hdisk

    After a few days: some cleaning

    When you are reasonably comfortable that your system is booting from SSD and Windows/apps work correctly, you can perform the following operations:

    • Use Macrium Reflect (free) or similar to save a snapshot of your current partition SSD
    • After the backup, delete old/unnecessary partitions on original hdisk. For some, drive management works; others may need to resort to using the command line program Admin "diskpart" (read the instructions carefully!) and use "Delete Partition Override" (be very sure that you have selected a partition on the * original hdisk * (IE, 'old'))
    • Disk management allows you to create a new simple volume on hdisk original now empty, as a reader of alternative utility
    • Regular backup of SSD Annex: SSDS, as with mechanical parts, will fail - it's only a matter of time. It 's going to happen. Thus, strongly suggest that you configure regular (daily) snapshots of your SSD partitions. Again, I use Macrium Reflect to do this with a full backup weekly + differential daily backups and save the images in the now empty original hdisk in the PC
    • If your SSD has any sense space not allocated, you may want to expand the Windows partition on the SSD drive use disk management to make use of this space
  • M7-k010dx want SSD upgrade

    Does anyone have the manual of reparation for this system? I'm doing an ssd upgrade but I can't find any real documentation on how to get to training. I can assume kind of how its going to go but I prefer to have a guide to tell me that I need to worry, if there are wires.

    Hello again Jerky_san"

    Thank you for waiting.

    I contacted someone who could give me this:

    I know that it is not listed as your model, but it's exactly the same laptop. Only a different color.

    Note that you need to clone your disk to your SSD. In order to have all partitions recovery.

    I think that this document could be useful.

    I do it by this agreement. Thank you Russell E.


  • Clean install of windows 8 pro x 64 on a new ssd upgrade, I have windows xp x 32 on a disk hard available, which I no longer use, can I do this?

    I want to clean install windows 8 pro x 64 on a new ssd upgrade.

    I have windows xp x 32 on an existing hard drive which I no longer use, I can do this, that I can start the upgrade process, and then point the installation on the new SSD?
    I really don't want to install XP on the new SSD and am not bothered about keeping programs or settings

    How to do a clean install:

    Step 1: Use the upgrade wizard to describe the PC and pay the $40 (US)

    Step 2: When the 'Install Windows 8' message appears, select 'Install by creating media' to create a bootable USB key or .iso (a disk image) file.

    Step 3: Wait for the Wizard download Windows 8 Pro installation package and create the bootable media or .iso file. The flash player must be having 3 GB or more of free space available.

    Step 4: Burn the .iso file, if that's the path you have chosen, to a blank DVD.

    Step 5: Use this key USB or DVD to boot the PC.

    Step 6: When you get to the screen in the Setup program that asks, "which type of installation you want?" choose "custom".

    Step 7: Select a drive for the operating system partition in the next screen. At this point, you can create a new partition if there is enough space available or reformat the hard disk.

    Step 8: Proceed with the installation of Windows 8 Pro.

    You should probably do a phone activation after installation is complete.

    1. press the Windows key + X , and then click run, and then type: slui.exe 4

    2. then press the ENTER"" key.

    3. Select your "country" in the list.

    4. choose the option "activate phone".

    5. stay on the phone (do not select/press all options) and wait for a person to help you with the activation.

    6. explain your problem clearly to the support person.

    Hello woc2,.

    Thanks for posting in the community!

    If you try to install a software on your laptop, so you met a blue screen, there is a strong possibility that this is just a software problem: maybe you installed incorrectly. You can help out for the average time before jumping to conclusions.

    Kindly try to perform the system restore first to when it still works very well. Otherwise, please do the system recovery.

    SSD upgrade, size matters. As long as the replacement SSD has the same size as the original one, it should work. However, you must install a retail version of Windows 7 more download drivers one by one to®ion_id=1&tab=download#/do...  You can use the recovery disks, or that you created or one of Sony, with the traditional hard drive Serial ATA (the one currently installed)

    Upgrade memory, as much as possible, get the same type than what is in the machine. Must not however exceed max of 8 GB.

    Please consult your card model VPCEH24FX. With regard to the Vegas Pro 12 system requirements, visit

    I want to spend my HARD drive for an ssd of 120 GB.but I don't know if it supports my system. I am considering buying a Samsung 850 evo please help me with this, thanks in advance.

    The hard drive on sleekbooks is not supposed to be a replaceable unit. You can violate the warranty by upgrading the hard drive, because by removing the keyboard can damage the laptop. You must accept the risk, if you choose to do so.

    I would recommend that you upgrade to an SSD with a minimum of 160 GB. 120 GB is enough storage capacity for the recovery media install OS 8.1 Windows license that came with the laptop. Otherwise, you must purchase a license from Microsoft or a supplier activation key.

    Thank you for your support.

    Here is the Service Manual:


    See Page 56. Replacing the hard drive on this model is more difficult than the ordinary laptop. You must remove the whole top cover.

    If you want to transfer partitions on the new drive, you must make a clone. Acronis True Image Home works very well and has a fully functional trial version of 30 days to

    You will also need a usb adapter to SATA for this and you need to do a sizing partitions unless sure that you don't try to do recovery or system partitions very small or certain things like Windows backup will not work.

  • sleekbook 14-f021nr Hard Drive Upgrade

    I am trying to upgrade my HP Pavilion Sleekbook 14-f021nr.  So far, I love the touchscreen but performace wise this thing is not desirable.   I've already doubled the RAM from 4 GB to 8 GB Win 8.1 can get alittle hungry.  When the monitoring task manager, I also noticed that often the hard drive runs at 100%, so I reduced the number of processes that automatically at Windows startup.  That didn't seem to help so my next point of attachment is upgraded to HD.  I currently have the standard HD 750 GB (ST750LM022 HN - M7) that came from the factory.  I looked in the service manual and it doesn't talk much about what is compatible other than SATA drives spinning @ 5400 standards.  While I can't quite afford to buy an SSD of 750Go to go to there are some affordable hybrid out there that combine both Solid State and traditional hard drives.  However, I did find a lot of documentation on compatibility issues for my laptop model.  Are there special considerations that I think about upgrading the hard drive.  I'm assuming SATAIII is a given but all the serice manual aludes to East of 5400 for spin speed and even talking SSD drives.  I was watching a couple of hybrid drives Seagate 1 TB and disks 1 TB Western Digital Black hybrid.   Advice or specifications would be greatly appreciated.

    You're definitely on the right track. An SSD is the new upgrade of the processor. Here is the Manual:


    See Page 38. Unfortunately, yours is one of the models where it is very difficult to get to the memory and the hard drive and you put the guarantee in jepoardy trying to upgrade the components. Given that you already upgraded the RAM I guess you know what you have found yourself, however.

    You won't be compatibility issues with any of the readers that you have mentioned. I will say that the true SSD is in a League by itself, but hybrid hard drives that you mention are also much faster than a stock 5400 drive RPM.

    Since you do not have an optical drive built in, migration of the software is also a problem. Your best bet is to clone the existing installation to the new drive using an external usb adapter to SATA.
