HP Pavilion 15 p105nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone. Sorry, i use google translate.  Laptop Pavilion p105nr. Motherboard DAY23AMB6C0. 

There are two questions:

1) Can I install an SSD instead of an HDD on it ? (i choose Plextor PX-256 M8VC)

2) Is it possible to activate AHCI mode?

Hi:

 

Yes, you can replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SATA SSD.

 

AHCI is set by default, but on notebooks with AMD processors, the AHCI controller is not labeled as such.

 

The notebook will run perfectly fine with a 2.5" SSD as it is configured.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the hard drive removal and replacement procedure.
