dv7-7012 ssd upgrade

Hi I have a dv7-7012 entertainment laptop and I'm looking to add an SSD for it. I know that it has a spot for it but I'm hoping for a part number for the cable and mounting bracket. 


Also, I would like to upgrade the network card in it to a dual band AC enabled one. Any suggestions on that?

The cable and mounting bracket can be purchased here:


These are thoroughly tested and approved by many users here at the Forum. 


HP has not made any AC wireless card workable with your laptop. There is a block imposed at the BIOS level which prevents booting if you install an unapproved wireless device. In other words, no dice. Sorry.
