Can I install a SSD drive on a HP Pavilion g6 1005-sq ?

I have a HP Pavilion G6 1005-sq and I thought about upgrading the hard drive to a solid state one.

Is SSD supported by this model ? 

 

Thanks,

Daniel.

Yeah. No problem.

 

See page 45 of the Manual here:

 

Service Manual

 

You can install any 2.5 inch wide SATA SSD. Samsung Evo 850 is a good one widely available on amazon.com and elsewhere. Get at least a 240 gig model. Smaller than that creates installation problems for software and is too small to use comfortably for very long. 

 

Windows 7 or higher will "just work" with an SSD; no need to tinker with BIOS or registry. Post back if you need help with software migration/reinstallation.
