Tecra S5 PTS53E - mSata SSD compatibility

Hi all

I have a Toshiba Tecra s5 PTS53E
I want to know if the motherboard on my map of msata suport laptop inside the laptop, on the motherboard about HDD is a slot like a mSata slot but I don't know.

is write anything there that can guide me.
How. identifies it? (Excuse my English)

Tecra S5 is an old series laptop and I don t think that this series is supported by the mSATA interface.
I guess you mixed up of this interface with the PCI mini (for BT, WLan or Modem module) slot which can be available on the motherboard.

  • HP ENVY 15 notebook PC TS: mSATA SSD compatibility

    Hello!  I was wondering if my laptop is mSATA compatible III for my mSATA SSD slot

    I am installing a new mSATA and the manual says (page5) laptop computer supports up to 24 G only, so does this mean I can't add more than 24 G?

    is there any recommendation for what mSATA module which can I buy?

    My product name: laptop HP ENVY 15 TS

    My product number: J1Y24EA #ABU

    Any help will be very appreciated!  Thank you!

    Hello! Well here's how it goes

    The mSATA Slot is only used for as acceleration for A HDD Cache for better system Performance for anything else however you could reformat it for storage if you want, but 24GO is not that much

    If you want to upgrade to an SSD to replace your HARD drive you buy a SSD SATA 2.5 inch

    Who will go in place of your HARD drive in the Bay to start the computer and plug in the SATA cable

    Now to start until the new drive, you must reformat so you have to make or buy a HP recovery for your computer media

    Here is a link on how to do recovery HP Media

  • mSATA SSD + 2.5 "HD on Tecra Z40 - B - 12 p


    soon I'll be getting a laptop Toshiba Tecra Z40 - B - 12 p, reference PT45GE-06S03F7J, it comes with a 250GB SSD mSATA. I want to know if it is possible to install a second hard disk 2.5 "additional or I have to choose between having a regular vs 2.5 mSATA SSD" HD.

    Thank you.

    Well, some models are equipped with an mSATA SSD instead of a hard drive.
    But there is only one place to connect the hard drive SSD SSD/HDD or mSATA.

    In the case of mSATA SSD drive, there is a special mSATA HOLDER that lets connect you the mSATA SSD to a 2.5 SATA controller ".

  • Tecra R840 mSata SSD installation in module 3G position

    I have a Tecra R840-110 model, there is also a 3 G module inside, I would install the mSata SSD pcie slot.
    Is possible to use the mSata SSD instead of module 3 G pcie slot?

    Thank you very much for your help!

    I think that something like this is not possible. Card mother ports are not a kind of flexible ports.
    In the past, that Toshiba gave the second HARD drive, upgrade instead of the optical drive using special adapter.

  • HP Envy 14 A9P67UA spectrum #ABA: Add (or replace) mSATA SSD to the HP Envy 14 spectrum w/windows 10... possible? Worth the risk?

    Hi all!

    So, I read in this forum on this subject and have seen mixed results.  I bought this computer a few years ago, generally pretty happy with it but I ran out of space and the battery is dying.  I am trying to decide whether to revise it or buy new.   That's what I want to do:

    Add 2nd mSATA SSD in the second slot.  I saw a post like this HD is compatible but that's a post.  Around, I've read that others have had problems by adding a second SSD.  Some people can not access, some people, it shows only a 128 GB extra, in fact, some have a BSOD.   The post I saw replaced the original disc to help one of them and adding a second drive so the two HDs were of the same brand.  Is it a better idea?  Also, all the posts I've seen on this topic were two years old and dealt with Windows 7.  Windows 10 it will make it harder to do?


    If not I can try and use the same car with the model came in the second slot to help in possible compatibility issues, but I would be limited to a 128 GB extra (or possibly 256?).

    I have also upgraded the memory of 8 GB and add a new battery.


    Reflections on what is successful? I wouldn't waste money on these parts if this is going to work.  Thank you!


    Hi @cdmdds,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I understand from your posts that you are having a problem with your Notebook SPECTRUM HP ENVY 14 - 3010NR and needing some updates. This system supports 8 GB (8192 × 1) of the maximum of memory RAM and 256 GB (128 GB × 2) Page 34 of the repair. The battery information on page 32.

    This would be due to the limit with the processor.

    Please let me know if this information helps you solve the problem by marking this post as accept as Solution, this will help others easily find the information they seek.

  • Satellite M60-139 - upgrade to mSATA SSD via an IDE adapter

    Nice day

    more capacity disc having, on the occasion of the passage of Win 7 I've tried alternatives to 80 GB built-in HARD drive.
    Use an mSATA to IDE adapter and an mSATA SSD 250GB.
    Install Win 7, system drivers, function ok.

    Because I don't know if the types of other manufacturers may be mentioned in this forum, I did not provide all the details on this subject, but you give information that Config. with me is running...

    Wishes Gerhard

    > Use a * mSATA IDE adapter * and an mSATA SSD 250GB.

    If you updated successfully the laptop with a 250 GB mSATA SSD using an IDE adapter in mSATA?

    Very interesting!

    Thanks for sharing your info!

  • Portege R930 - upgrade the mSATA SSD succssfull

    Just briefly, I wanted to report an SSD upgrade.

    When I got my Portege R930 (PT331E, i7) two years ago, I changed the HD to a PRO 840 Samsung SSD 512 GB (big improvement). Now, this SSD is too small (photos!) and I wanted to increase the capacity up to 1 TB.

    But instead of a new SATA, I decided to go for an mSATA + adapter SATA I felt an mSATA unit would be more "evolutionary" - next update of the laptop for me would be a Portege Z, who use mSATA.

    So I bought a Samsung 850 EVO 1 TB with a Delock adapter/converter mSATA SSD, made a clone of the Apricorn cable and the software switched the SSD and everything works fine (actually a little faster )! At first I tried to use the clone with software from Samsungs migration but this didn t work, maybe I didn t the right version.

    -Now I have a lager SSD that will live longer than my R930. Please note that I'm not an expert with computers - just a happy user Toshiba! Thanks for a good forum with my good ideas!

    / Anders

    So, I bought a Samsung SSD 850 EVO mSATA 1 TB whole with a converter/adapter Delock...
    .. .and everything works fine

    Good news Lao!
    Thanks a lot for the comments...

    I also upgraded my laptop with a 250 GB SSD drive and now I think of a larger SSD... I should consider your solution now...

  • Satellite A210-248 does not recognize the 840 ECO mSATA SSD

    I want to build in my Satellite A210-248 on the port of msata ssd.

    When I build in the ssd bios dind't find the ssd, so I can't install windows in the ssd


    Satellite A210 does not support port mSATA and therefore the mSATA SSD module cannot be used.
    Probably, you have found a mini-PCI on the motherboard slot. It certainly looks like mSATA but its not the same thing.

  • Satellite U400 - 12 p and mSATA SSD

    I have the Satellite U400 - 12 p.
    The motherboard has two free slots miniPCI if they install mSATA SSD OCZ AC Nocti - MSATA - 120G, for example in these slots?

    I agree with Akuma. Satellite U400 is old enough laptop model and its standard SATA port, you cannot use reader with connector mSATA (mini-SATA).
    the mSATA discs are smaller and designed for use on the netboos and ultraportable notebooks.

  • Ultrabook Envy6-1100sl: install a 2nd OS on the msata SSD - Envy6-1100sl

    Hi, I upgraded my envy6 with 16 GB Crucial RAM and 500 GB samsung SSD evo. After upgrade, I did a clean install of windows 10 and stopped to use the itegrated msata ssd. My question is:
    Can I install a second operating system on the msata ssd? Can this bios read the second OS on the msata? Is there a procedure to follow?
    Thank you

    Thanks for suggesting it, but I've created a simple way... I just installed the second OS on the msata. At startup the sistem starts automatically on my main drive (500 GB win10), but if I press F9 when starting, I can see my linux on second drive (32 GB msata) and just choose to start when I need.
    Don't need to grub or similar just manual choice, and that's what I wanted!

  • I need drivers to install Win7 64 bit on mSATA SSD


    I need drivers to install WIN7 x 64 on THNSNH256GMCT mSATA SSD

    Serial number on my product is 23NS10BFTABY

    Thank you!

    This serial number does not help much. It will be better if you can display the name of the exact model laptop and the model number.

    Anyway, visit Toshiba support and download page for your country and if your laptop model is supported for Win7 64 bit, you should be able to find all of the necessary drivers, tools and utilities.

    Grateful for any help.

    AMD model No., you can not install a WSSD. The answer on Intel models depends on the specific model. Many cannot use a WSSD as boot drive, but some can.

    Please, is this model mSATA port for mSATA SSD HDD? I'm not sure... Is - this Port SSD mSATA or modem WAN?

    Thank you...

    Here is the Manual:


    See pp. 4-13. It is a WWAN port and would not recognize a storage mSATA device.

    See p. 4-18 for the installation of the hard disk. Should be a SATA SSD.
