Default Re: Need help Installing an SSD properly

Some laptops, over 16.5" have 2 HD spots. 1 has the factory drive, the others empty. You don't need to remove the drive, it's like adding a HD into a desktop.

So unless you're in the know, popping the new drive into the empty spot seems normal.

Woohoo = L5639 @3.1Ghz EVGA SR-2 gtx 260-216 Hyper 212+ Corsair 1050hx 6x2gb Corsair XMS3 Blackhawk Ulra
