Precision M7710 - additional HDD bay/bays

Jump to solution

I have had something of a poke about, but I can't see any information on where additional drive bays are and how they are accessed. I think that there are three (?) bays - the primary one being alongside the battery.

Can anybody point me in the direction of how to access the others please (they were easier to spot in my old M6600)?

Thanks,

Myles

The system has only one 2.5" internal drive bay - anything else must be a card format (M.2/NGFF) SSD.

Service manual has the details on the M.2 drives:

So, there are only the M2 units and not 2.5" available?

From my chat transcript (some pop-ups are useful):

Myles Crowder: "That's fine Genesis. It's a simple question really - can you confirm the HDD configurations possible for this machine please? Is it 1x 2.5 and 2x M2"
Agent (Genesis_Duclayan): "Thanks for waiting, you are correct on that configuration, it could handle 1 SATA3 and 2x M.2 SSD"

Thanks
