Acer Swift 3 SF315-52-534X upgrade question

engltaylengltayl Member Posts: 3 New User
Could anybody help. I am thinking of buying a Acer Swift 3 SF315-52-534X (NX.H1MED.002) Which has 8Gb of ram and a 2Tb SATA hard drive.

Can i add an SSD drive?
If so could this be a NVMe and bootable and use the 2Tb as a secondary storage drive?
Does it have 2 memory slots and what the maximum amount of memory that can be installed?

Appreciate any help.

Thanks

    According to the service guide, this model supports both nvme and sata 3, see:

    However, I'm not 100% sure that your model supports NVVME!
    Since this model has a m2 entry, you can leave the hd as a secondary unit!
    On ram, see this:

    However, some came with ddr3L. Use aida64 to confirm this information and also make sure that the ram memory slots are actually available!

    Great thanks. 

    Do you know if its simple to install a fresh copy of windows 10 onto a new SSD without buying another copy of windows?

    Thanks

    I'd rather use some program like macrium reflect, which will do an exact cloning of the operating system that is on HD!

    Be aware that putting an M.2 SSD in does require quite a bit of tear down, it's not just remove a cover and plugin...

    Did you install the SSD? Does NVMe SSDs work?
  • engltaylengltayl Member Posts: 3 New User
    Yes I did. I removed all drives. Turned off optane. Installed Samsung 512Gb SSD and then did a fresh install of Windows 10 off a USB stick. Then I put HHD back in and formatted it. Seemed to work great.
