Re: what motherboard is in the Acer Aspire ATC-780-ur11 and what SSD can I install in it?

It's a custom Acer motherboard (probably manufactured by MSI) and it has Intel H110 chipset.

 

According to the specs below, you can install an M.2 SSD with a SATA interface......examples below.

M.2 screw (the Samsung M.2 SSD doesn't come with screws)

I don't work for Acer and I don't have a TC-780...and the official spec page is broken so I can't access it.

 

Bonus: Here's how to add an M.2 SSD and use as a boot drive (with the OS).

 

1. Create a USB factory recovery drive

2. Turn off computer and install M.2 SSD.  Disconnect the existing HDD SATA power cable.

 

3. Insert USB factory recovery drive in the USB port.

 

4. Turn on computer and select Troubleshoot>Advanced>Reset

 

5. After you confirm your new M.2 SSD is working properly, you can shut the computer down and reconnect the HDD.
