Solved!

fitting HDD to laptop

HP Recommended
255 G7
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a  255 G7laptop running W10 Pro. It has 16gB of ram, one HDD and no optical drive.

I want to upgrade by fitting an additional HDD.

 

Is that possible on my device.

The series does not offer dual storage

 

            https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-255-g7-notebook-pc/24381324/document/c06194380

 

Therefore you need to open your machine and check to see available slot/part. Page 57 of the following manual shows you location of HDD (if available) bay and part required to install 2.5" HDD.

 

Regards.

Opening up{removing the botom cover] certainly showed me that this is possible, and as well as the HDD i will require the following parts:-

1:-Hard drive bracket   p/no, L-20455-001

2:-HDD connector board  p/no, L-20454-001

The problem is that i can find nowhere to purchase these items. Can anyone help.

 

Thankyou.
