Can 15-f209wm model be upgraded to a SSD?

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I was wondering if the 15-f209wm model can be upgraded to a SSD (Solid State Drive)? My recent hard drive failed 2 days after the warrany expired, yeah what luck and HP wants $280 to fix it. What a joke that a HDD can't even last a year and HP won't even work with you on a price. Big rip off.

 

Thanks

Hi,


Manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04763947

Specs: http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04770536

It needs major disassembly of notebook: page 44-46

But it can be done. Just put 2.5 inch 7mm SATA SSD in HDD bay. Use recovery discs to factory reset OS to it. For recovery media to work, at least 256gb SSD to be bought.


Regards

Visruth, why do I need a 256gb for recovery media to work? Won't a 120 gb SSD work?

I've got information that HP recovery media is known to work successfully in HDD/SSD of at least 160gb. This was discussed in few of the Inner Circle threads in this forum and also in one of the previous HP Expert meet ups.
