HP Envy 17t-3000 (CTO) mssd Msata upgrade

Currently have an HP Envy 17t-3000 CTO.

Looking at the Maint. & Service Manual and it lists a part for an mssd msata.

 

Any know if my Envy model or Product LW900AV will accept a mssd msata drive?

If yes, what's the max. currently available as it shows 128G but that's about ~2yr old in manual?

 

Is this a cache drive instead of a mSata drive?

Would I put the Win7 OS onto the mssd msata drive?

What's the benefit as I currently have a 750Gb 7200rpm HDD?

I do have an extra HDD slot where I can add. a second HDD, soon.

I know that I can add an Sata drive into the primary drive and then move the original HDD into the 2d drive bay as a storage drive.

 

So I'm wondering will the mssd msata drive for the HP Envy 17t-3000 just act as a cache drive to make booting up and general drive function faster?

 

Thanks!

Hi MrMojo

 

Thank you for your inquiry, I am happy to be of help.

 

I understand that you are interested in installing a MSata drive.

Here is the HP ENVY 17 Maintenance and Service Guide. Please note page 22, item  21 for a list or recommended hard drives. You will see it does have a 750 GB  hybrid drive listed.  You should not have an issue, but you may need to an adaptor.

 

Here  are link to What is Sata/mSata and eSata and why would I need them? , and Hybrid hard drives, are they worth the money?, from tom'sHardware to assist you with the differences and benefits.

 

I hope I have helped.

Actually, I was looking for item 24, pg 19 for mSata Drive.

 

Looks like it could accept up to 128Gb only.

After market research shows that it's still relatively expensive.

Not worth buying one since a SSD drive costs similar but provides more storage!

 

Thanks!
