Acer Swift 3 (SF314-54) M.2 SSD and RAM upgrades

Hello, I have an Acer Swift 3 (SF314-54 / i5-8250u / Intel Graphics 620 / 1x 8GB / 16GB Intel Optane M.2 / 1TB HDD SATA) and I would like to know if I can substitute the Intel Optane for a 1TB M.2 2280 SSD? I also would like to know if I can substitute the RAM for a 16GB module? Thank you.

    First remove the Optane card. Then see if the system boots without the card. You may have to change the SATA mode to AHCI in the BIOS main tab to get the HDD to boot. If it boots without the optane card, you're free to insert the 1TB m.2.

    You should have 4GB non-replaceable soldered DDR4 RAM and 4GB replaceable DDR4 RAM module. So you can replace the 4GB DDR$ module with an 8GB DDR4 module for a total of 12GB DDR4 RAM.
