Hi there. I'd previously asked some questions on this in a previous post (https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/548792/new-ssd-es1-132-c8wf
) but @brummyfan2
suggested I ask a fresh question on it to open it up to everyone. That's just incase anyone thinks I've not seen that thread.
So, I'm planning on putting an SSD into my Acer Aspire ES1-132-C8WF. I bought the cable from eBay. I think I know pretty much what to do, but if anyone has step by step instructions, that would be helpful. Brummy, you did appear to post a blog with instructions for the process, but it wouldn't allow me to access the blog. Like I said, I think I'll be fine if not...but it might help.
Second is that I've not been able to find the metal casing/screws to hold the casing in place for this particular model. I've seen people suggest using bubble wrap or tape or some such thing to hold it in place. If anyone can advise me on this, that would be great.
I've seen it said that the SSD needs to be a 7mm thick one to fit in the bay. I know it sounds like a dumb question, but I'm guessing for that info, if the drive's listed dimensions are 10.1 x 0.7 x 7 cm, then that would be appropriate, 0.7cm being 7mm. I know as I type this it sounds like such a dumb question, but I just don't want to get the wrong one.
