Install an M.2 Flash SSD

Note -  The M.2 mezzanine contains two M.2 flash SSD sockets (labeled SSD0 and SSD1). If you are installing a single M.2 flash SSD on to the mezzanine, install the M.2 flash SSD into socket SSD0.
  1. Unpack the replacement M.2 flash SSD.
  2. Install the M.2 flash SSD.
    1. Align and then insert the plastic retainer clip into the slot on the M.2 flash SSD.
    2. Hold the M.2 flash SSD so that the end of the card containing the plastic retainer clip is approximately one-half to one inch above the M.2 mezzanine and the other end is adjacent to the riser SSD socket [1].

    3. Gently slide the M.2 flash SSD forward and into the connector to engage the flash SSD contacts with the M.2 mezzanine socket [2].
    4. Using your fingers, push down on the end of the card containing the plastic retainer clip until the M.2 flash SSD snaps into place on the mezzanine [2].

      You will hear an audible click when the M.2 flash SSD is secured to the mezzanine.

  3. Repeat Step 2 to install the second M.2 flash SSD on to the opposite side of the M.2 mezzanine.
  4. Perform the steps to install the M.2 mezzanine with the replacement M.2 flash SSDs on to the PCIe riser.
