Solved!

Add a ssd disk to HP PAVILON 550-111 nl

HP Recommended
HP PAVILON 550-111 nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good mornig
I'd like to know if it is possible to add a secondary disk (ssd) to my HP PAVILON 550-111 nl,

I have looked into the computer and seem to me that on the motherboard there is only 2 connection, one for th primary HD and one for the cd lector.

 

In this case can I connect the secondary disk with the cd cable (it means disconnecting the cd)

 

Thanks

Hello
From what I can see there would be three!

 

Odense motherboard top viewdark blue, light blue, white , not ?
But that doesn't change much if you don't have a free slot!
unless you find a small corner and a trick to place it!

 

It remains to be seen how the sata power supply connectors are, sometimes it is special with these new computers

NB, I just realized that it is an ultra slim drive, I don't know if you can adapt the SSD here!

Thanks

 

I have seen the three connectors but, due to the different colours, I didn't know if they were OK for my SSD,

For alimentation I have enough connectors

Anyway I have tried and it seems to works


Thanks again
