I understand how to remove the SSD and that is not a problem and I will do that.
Since this has failed I would like to buy another SSD and install the operating system on this. I never got a Windows Recovery disc/usb/download. Can you help get me one so I can update my system. Also how much space does the SSD need to be to just handle the Operating System?
Your machine has software on it to create Recovery Media. however your OS is stated as Windows 10 so I assume you have upgraded from the original Windows 8.1? If so the ability to create Recovery Media is likely gone.
The machine can Not boot from a replacement for the failed mSATA. You could replace the boot drive with an SSD. Size required will depend on whether you will be using Recovery Media to reinstall Windows 8.1 or use the free tool from MS to create a Windows 10 installation dvd/usb.
