I want to install SSD in my "Asus G551JX-DM036H ROG "

Well mSATA is for cache only? not like another drive to boot os and use ssd as os?


But if i install 250GB SSD on my Asus G551JX-DM036H ROG
Then can i install OS in that mSATA SSD and boot it also??

PLease help me i am confused it is strictly for CACHE or i can really install OS in it even.


Thanks

Yes you can install the OS to an M2 drive.

Sorry, not the same but still you can install the OS on it.

Without going through it all again........

thanks a lot.. i understanded all now

only 2 silly questions if u can really know about it:

1. moving primary HDD to DVD BAY using CADDY & adding new SSD in primary
2. installing mSATA myself ( it is too inside in my laptop need to open it whole almost

1 and 2 what can void warranty ? Both?

As per link: https://rog.asus.com/15842014/hands-on/g551-upgrade-guide/
Seems like adding caddy and changing HDD is legit but i do not know about mSATA.
Also moving primary HDD to CADDY and adding SSD to primary SATA is legit or will void warranty i have no diea!


Thanks

Anything in the user serviceable area does not void any warranty. One user has reported that when they did use a caddy the sata connection for the caddy cooked and warranty did not cover it.
Technically if you go past the user serviceable are the warranty is voided but there are no seals there so the only thing that would show someone was there would be tool marks made by a fool.
