Introducción

Accessing and replacing the Solid State Drive (SSD) is useful if it has been damaged or if you wish to swap it out with another one for extra storage space. Exercise extreme caution while removing and handling the drive. Although the drive is fairly sturdy, even a small dent can permanently damage it.

Note: The Yoga 3 Pro requires a M.2 SATA drive. NVMe SSDs will not work for the device.

Thank you. This looks much easier than I imagined that it would.

Why do you remove the battery? Can't you just unhook the battery cable?

I don't think this guide is 100% accurate, in that the Yoga 3 Pro (mine anyway) ONLY supports SATA3, and NOT NVME(PCIe), for the SSD interface.

As such, if you order, and try to install the Crucial P5 drive (after imaging the old drive to the P5), it will NOT recognize it, in the BIOS, because it can't bootstrap (or in any way, really) the drive.

Maybe there were multiple motherboards, with different chipsets, for the Yoga3 Pro, I have no idea, on this part, but I know the one we have is definitely limited, to SATA3.

@CPSU-MANESS-F15S12G17 (I hope this tags the team, I couldn't figure out how to tag Federico+LopezCasildo, directly, so I'm tagging "the team"), you might want to review this, and adjust, accordingly (there are plenty of SATA3 drives that can/will work, with this system).
