How to check if my laptop has an extra bay for a 2.5 inch SSD?

HP Pavilion ab-522tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I wish to install a 128 GB or 256 GB SSD in my laptop so that I can install Windows 10 on that and then boot off it. But how do I find out if my laptop supports an extra SSD or not?

Hi,

There is not extra bay for 2.5" ssd. You can either replace the hard drive you have at the moment or install an M2 SSD (sata) which has the same prize as a regular 2.5 "ssd.

 

Here is the service manual for your device.

Hope it helps, 

David

So, I can install the M.2 SSD without removing the existing hard drive?

Also, I wish to move my Windows 10 installation to the SSD, preferably without losing any data or having to reinstall Windows. Can you point me to a helpful link?

 

Thanks!
