Solved!

Maximum SSD size

HP Recommended
EliteBook 840 G2
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I want to upgrade my EliteBook 840 G2 computer to a larger SSD as I now have a 256 Gb. Can I upgrade to a 1 Tb SSD. If not what is the largest capacity SDD I can upgrade to.

 

When I upgrade do I need to make any changes to the computer or just replace the current SSD with the upgrade and load the operating system.

 

Any recommendations as to a particular manufacture that works well with an EliteBook.

 

Any help on this issue will be greatly appreciated.

You can use 1TB. Depending on what do you need to keep on old storage. You can simply clone old SSD to new SSD and swap. It is much faster and easier than  replace the current SSD with the upgrade and load the operating system.
