Hi, i'm looking to upgrade my Laptop with a Solid State Drive. Is there a list of supported hard drive configurations or is it possible to use any combination? I'd like to continue using the currently installed disc as a secondary drive (1TB HDD) if possible since my laptop has two hard drive slots. (migrating the OS to the SSD, which would then be Disc 1, and using the currently installed disc as Disc 2). Is this possible? Thanks in advance for your reply!

I think you are talking about disk, not disc (normally for CD/DVD or BD).
Yes, basically you can use any SSD. There are many around but current hot is Samsung 850 Evo for price / performace
My suggestion: use 1TB (same size with the existing HDD) and simply clone the whole old HDD to SSD then make SSD as drive 1.
You may get a small problem: even your machine has 2 bays but no cable inside for bay 2. You have to source one, please try from:
