M.2 and Sata on pavilion x360 and ram

Pavilion x360

Hello !

 

I have choice betwen two models of Pavilion x360 13" :

 

13-a202nj

 

 

13-a201nj

 

The 13-a202nj have a "ssd M.2" and the 13-a201nj have a sata SSHD. 

 

I wanted to know if these two models have the same mother board with a slot M.2 and a slot Sata or if they have two diferents boards one only with M.2 slot and one with only sata slot ? 

 

I also wanted to know if the memory ram is upgradable from 6 to 8 GB ?

 

Thanks !!

Hi,


Both of them have SATA and m2 SATA-3 NGFF SSD slots on board.

Manual:
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04582281

http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-13-x360-Convertible-PC-series/7527803/model/7685239/...

http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-13-x360-Convertible-PC-series/7527803/model/7685247/...


RAM can be upgraded to maximum 8gb with another 4gb of exactly same configuration given in the Manual and as the one on other slot, preferably the same brand.

M.2 and Sata on pavilion x360 and ram

Thank you very much ! 

 

I don't find any explain of the M2 slot in the Service guide :

 

There is one slot for both, sata and M.2, and there is an adaptive flex for each one ? Or there is two different slot and space ? 

 

To explain myself, do you think that is possible to add a regular sata hard disck in the 13-a201 in addition to the M.2 SSD or to add a M.2 SSD to the 13-a201 in addition of the sata hard disk ? 

 

In fact i don't anderstand if the M.2 SSD take the place of the hard disk or if it's directly conected to the board with a empty hard disck place... (for the 13-a202)

Me too.

The m2 SSD can go directly only into m2 socket in the board. Likewise SATA SSD can go directly only into SATA port connection.

Now , there are adapters you would be able to buy to plug m2 SATA SSD into SATA socket.

 

 

To explain myself, do you think that is possible to add a regular sata hard disck in the 13-a201 in addition to the M.2 SSD or to add a M.2 SSD to the 13-a201 in addition of the sata hard disk ? 

 

This, I cannot confirm as I have seen feedbacks in here that m2 SSD and SATA drives won't work when put together .

 

 

In fact i don't anderstand if the M.2 SSD take the place of the hard disk or if it's directly conected to the board with a empty hard disck place... (for the 13-a202)

 

Regarding the specific two models you're concerned , I cannot confirm as I do not have those models with me. i.e., cannot confirm that m2 SATA SSD & SATA slots are present on the same board at a time as Manual don't illustrate it - only lists them compatible with the board.

Update: Got an info from one of the HP Expert here that your model series should have slots for both m2 SATA SSD & SATA form factors like s000 & a000 series.

If you go through the removal and replacement procedure described in the Manual, you'll see that it requires some major disassembly for both upgrade.

Give it to HP service center if you want to keep the warranty intact because if something goes wrong while upgrading yourself it'll definitely not be honored by HP.

Yes i saw...

 

It's will be very difficult to find a HP serice center where i live... 

 

Ok sorry, i don't want to anoy you with questions like this but... I'am a profesional techncian and i am able to do the upgrade, do you know if the warranty is void by opening the device or by causing a damage during the work ?
