HD Caddy for Pavillion dv3 4302 ea Laptop

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I would like to replace my optical drive on my Pavillion dv3 4302ea with an ssd drive. I have already purchased the ssd from Crucial but I now need to find a caddy that fits. Is there a recommended supplier who can advise me?

Hi,

 

 

I'll not put SSD in optical bay. SSD should be in primary bay as boot drive. The 750gb HDD should be moved to optical bay for storage alone. Optical bay drive cannot be made a bootable.

 

Hope you've recovery media to factory reset OS to SSD. Else you can clone HDD to SSD using cloning softwares.
