Install Crucial M500 SSD on Lenovo U260

It works perfectly.

1. Follow Lenovo U260 manual ┬áto open up the laptop and replace the hard drive. (There is a screw under the seal sticker after opening the keyboard but you don’t really need to open it up since you can replace hard drive without opening it up completely).

2. Replace hard drive.

(After booting up Windows was not able to recognize the hard drive and was asking for the HDD driver and Crucial doesn’t provide one yet.)

3. But you can boot up from a flash disk loaded with bootable Ubuntu or Gparted live and use Gparted to create Master Boot Record and format the hard drive as NTFS.

4. Then boot up with Windows installation disk and install Windows.

5. Enjoy the speed!
