Computer has an (M.2) SSD socket on the mainboard into which the system SSD drive is plugged. There is a vacant 2.5 inch bay and a vacant SATA port. I want add a 2.5 inch data SSD to the vacant bay and connect to the SATA port. Will the system boot and automatically recognize the new drive as secondary ?
Thanks for response, but didn't clarify. There are two onboard sata connections. Will the motherboard recognize one (the M.2 socket) as the system drive and the other (SATA port) as a secondary data drive ? Does the bios have to be reset ? Is it really just plug and play ?
