HP 110-014 Desktop

I have an HP 110-014 desktop computer.  The motherboard (Pegatron) Redwood 2, Mini-ITX: 17 cm board is way too small and ONLY has 2 SATA ports on the board.  I would like to add 2 more internal hard drives to give this computer more storage.    Right now, this computer ONLY has a 500gig hard drive.  

 

OBVIOUSLY, I could replace the original 500gig HD with a much bigger drive OR I could grab some external hard drives to increase the storage capacity.  

 

My question is very simple, can I replace the existing motherboard with a larger motherboard that supports 4 SATA ports rather than 2 ports?   Just to clarify, I want 4 SATA ports on the motherboard.

Re: HP 110-014 Desktop

The Redwood 2 motherboard is a Mini-ITX board and the case is also very small. No ATX or micro-ATX (uATX) motherboard will fit in this case. At minimum, you would need to purchase a new case, new motherboard, and a new operating system (because the OEM install would cease to function).

 

I suggest going with external USB drives or network attached drives.
