Service Manual 

 

Yes you can just replace the mechanical hard drive with about any 2.5 inch wide and 7mm thick SATA SSD. Samsung 860 is a good choice. Just replace the SSD exactly like a hard drive. If you want to clone you will need some external storage or a usb to 2.5 inch adapter. 

 

If Windows 10 is activated on the hard drive it will reactivate on the SSD even if installed as a new clean install. You need no Key Code. 

 

Post back with any other questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.
