Tell us about yourself!
You'll probably find that the shucked 2TB SSD is too big to fit into the case beside the existing drive, the shucked 512GB SSD seems to be a good size and is a perfect fit beside the existing drive. If you're suggesting to take out the existing Toshiba drive and replace it with the Samsung that would work, the connection on the board is in the photo supplied above by the OP so you'll probably need the connector 080RK8 unless you already have one.
Thanks Ixnolan, put in a shucked Samsung 850 PRO 512GB and made it my boot disk, nice to be able to put 3 drives in a Latitude 5480 :)
Hi Andrew, I did a temporary install in line with coryhamma's instructions, I have a msata to sata adaptor and spare msata unit, the system did recognise that additional drive but I haven't yet tried to set the new msata install up as a boot drive. In fact I'm going to go with Ixnolan's post below and cannibalise a Samsung SSD and try and set that up as he/she did to save having another adaptor and also to not have to modify the original PCIe drive caddy. That should give me 3 x drives in the 5480.
My problem, IIRC as it was over 2 years ago, was that the Win10 image needed configuring for drivers for the WWAN port, unfortunately I wasn't able to find the right ones so I couldn't build the Windows image in order to install on that port. Every few months my 5480 "loses" connection with the drive in the WWAN slot, neccesitating me removing and reinstalling it, so my setup isn't perfect!
Hi Andrew, the system recognised the drive without any issues. Unfortunately I couldn't get the system to boot from the WWAN port, despite hours of compiling various Win10 images and drivers, so resigned myself to using that port only as a data disk. Cheers.
