    I currently own a Razer Blade 14 2017. I just purchased a Bade 15 advanced. Am I able to just swap the drives out? or is there something else I need to do. thanks!

    Current: Razer Blade 14 (2017)

    Current Drive: Samsung 970 EVO 2TB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD

    New: Razer Blade 15 Advanced

    Hi! The Blade 14 (2017) also has the same SSD slots like the Blade 15 Advanced so you can just swap them out. Be careful in doing this by the way, as any damage caused while swapping the drives will void the warranty. :)

    Keep in mind there may be drivers to delete and install in windows (if this is the C: drive)

    yay! we are up and running. Had a hard time getting the touchpad working but all is installed. just swapped out SSD, windows update, installed wifi drivers, and the rest started working. One issue I did have was getting windows to activate again but I was able to fix that too. Thanks for the help!
