add hard drive hp pavilion 17-g015dx

Product Name: pavilion 17-g015dx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello All,

 

Recently bought a pavilion 17-g015dx for parents.  I would like to add an additional ssd, but do not see any access doors on the under panel.  So, two questions:

 

1:  Does anyone know if there is an extra HDD 2.5" slot in the pavilion 17-g015dx?

 

2:  How to you disassemble the pavilion 17-g015dx to physically access the hdd connectors?

 

Thanks for the help!

Re: add hard drive hp pavilion 17-g015dx

Hi,

 

From the specs (in the book), no option for 2 HDD's. I know the Envy 17 machines (not Pavilion) have 2 slots. My old loan machine has 2 HDD's and a 24GB cache. My current loan machine is also an Envy 17 and it has 2 HDD's (actually one 256GB SSD and one 1TB HDD).

 

Regards.

Thanks BH,

 

That definitely details the disassembly.  Smiley Happy

 

Do you know if there is a second hdd slot inside the pavilion 17-g015dx, or do you have to use an optical drive conversion kit to add a second drive?

 

Thanks again for the post
