That was added in the T420. The XX00-10 series does not support it.

If it's a combined slot you need to pick if you want WWAN or Intel Turbo Memory. Split slots will be designated for one or the other.

To do the conversion on this one, you’re going to need parts from eBay and a 3D printed caddy - yes, these 1.8” ThinkPads are something so special they’re nightmares to make work. What you will need to do is download an adapter like this, get it printed/use your own 3D printer and get an mSATA to uSATA adapter that’ll fit in it. mSATA is pretty much a decrepit standard, so the speeds you will likely get will not be as good as something with PCIe for example. If you can handle CAD software or can find an M.2 adapter (and SSD) small enough, go that route. Due to the size of these 1.8” SSDs, you’re limited in how large of a drive you can install with PCIe :(. You have a horrible laptop in terms of hard drive/SSD upgrades.

There is no caddy in these s laptops, so you will need to make your own pull tab. I learned this the hard way and had to figure things out quickly so I have an idea once I realized I bid on a T410s forgetting about this problem since I’m probably going to own it.

is there any other way i could install an ssd, the main drive uses a 1.8 inch mechanical drive.


@vip_aha What you can do is get a 1.8" to mSATA adapter. The slot on the system board is for Turbo Memory (Intel failure) or WWAN if it's shared. Yeah... Those 1.8" drives are beyond hopeless. Don't bother with specifically built 1.8" drives - they don't exist in usable capacities.

Just be warned mSATA is a dead end standard so if you can find one with M.2 SATA support that'll fit take it - but I also doubt it with how hopeless the 1.8" laptops tend to be.


okay thanks for the help
