Jump to solution

Hello everyone,

I have an Alienware A15 (Cassini15CFL-1901-1014), this one actually :


I can not open it right now so I ask you :

I would like to know if I could add a 256Go SSD without removing the first SSD, the HDD, nor everything else.


Thank you.

From what I can see, and it does not appear to be an exact model offered by Dell site in North America, there are 2 M.2 NVME slots. So you could add an additional NVME M.2 SSD. The following model looks like a match.


Or maybe this one which has similar storage capabilities.

Hi @QuentinCa,

Your computer supports one of the following configurations:

  • One 2.5-inch hard drives
  • One M.2 PCIe solid-state drive
  • One M.2 PCIe solid-state drive and one 2.5-inch hard drive
  • One M.2 Intel Optane and one 2.5-inch hard drive
  • Two M.2 PCIe solid-state drives
NOTE: The primary drive of your computer varies depending on the storage configuration.

For computers:

  • with a M.2 drive, the M.2 drive is the primary drive.
  • without M.2 drive, the 2.5-inch drive is the primary drive.
