z640 - Second Z Turbo Drive

HP Recommended
HP Workstation z640 T4K61EA#UU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Greetings my friends.

 

We have acquired a brand new z640 workstation, which were provided with a 256 GB Z Turbo Drive. To expand our storage space we also acquired an additional 512 GB Z Turbo Drive. We replaced the smaller drive and now we would like to know how to correctly install it as an additional drive. The lack of information and very week HP Support had led our way here asking following questions:

 

Considering following:

- our workstation is z640.

- this is a single CPU installation.

- we have two Z Turbo Drives (512 faster/bigger and 256 slower/smaller).

- 512 GB Z Turbo Drive is used as the main drive while it is faster.

 

Our questions are:

  1. - Which slot is recommended for the additional drive?
  2. - Is there a pin connector for the status led light (HDDACT_OUT - HDD LED)?

 

HP Support was not able to answer our questions, maybe you are..

 

Best Regards,

Lorvi Anton

Hi,

 

Review the below image.  Slot 5 is your first choice.

 

The HDD activity LED is located by the front USB ports. I don't know if that is going to work with PCIe SSDs.
