@TheWiz72,

Here is your unit, as specified.   There are options. Sometimes stating an SSD is very vague.

1) Your present unit has a 128GB M.2 NVMe device.  You could increase its size. Video

This requires an external enclosure for the clone process, and then swapping the devices.

2) At the 0:43 sec mark this video will show the motherboard (less any cables).  The 2x2 black header is where the SATA power cable plugs into the motherboard.  That has to be ordered.  Please call them to verify this cable.  You can also inquire about a data cable. This video shows the 1st hard drive placement.   2nd mounting position. A 2.5" SSD drive will require an adapter tray.

This system is feedback driven thru Solution and Kudo flags. It's the only means of knowing if you have been served. Please click Accept as Solution, if your problem is solved. To say THANK YOU, press the "thumbs up symbol" to render a KUDO. You can render both Solution and KUDO..
