Of course you can. But 1 TB SSD is too expensive. Instead you can buy / install an 128/256 GB SSD without replacing the HDD. Your system can run both types of disks simultaneous.
Thanks for the quick response, I have already an 512 nvme ssd in my dell 7577 and a 1tb hdd SATA. I want to take the hdd out and swap it with a 1 tb ssd sata type 2.5 inch. Is there a limitation for the sice or is it possible to install a 1 tb ssd sata 2.5 inch. And they arent so expenisiv i can get one for 150 euros.
Of course, a SATA 2.5 hard drive can be exchanged for a 2.5 SATA SSD. I have been running the same set up for years love my 1 TB Samsung 850 Pro with a ten-year warranty. there is no difference between them except the SSD is much faster and you'll have no mechanical drives to worry about getting bumped or just for fun failing. My 850 Pro has been running since 2012 in its 2nd notebook presently. Since I don't have a 2.5 bay in this 13"It's going into an external USB C case
In fact, if I were buying again this is what I would put in https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Inch-Internal-MZ-76E2T0B-AM/dp/B0786QNSBD/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1546...
I tried to change 1 TB HDD (ST1000LM035) to 480GB SSD (530 Series SSDSC2BW480A401), but window cannot find ssd as pluged device.
Does somebody solve such problem?
Power off your Dell and power it back up pressing [F2], this should take you to the UEFI BIOS Setup. Look at System Information, do you see the SSD listed there? What Windows Version are you trying to install e.g. Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Version 1903 and where did you get the installation media?

Not anymore, I just got a 2TB Crucial MX500 SSD for $212 shipped from Rakuten I'm installing in mine today. I actually originally paid $330 from Amazon but the price dropped days after so returned that one and reordered it from there instead. Prices on SSD's are dropping like crazy this year so far and supposedly it's going to continue. I also put a 500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVME in here for $125 as well.
