    So I got a 2nd NVMe drive for the open slot on my new Blade 15. But I'm not sure I have the bracket on right after installing it. Is there a video somewhere of doing this upgrade (or even an official Razer doc?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, it didn't. there was a plus sign on a foam backed sticker on top of the bracket, but neither screw had a sticker on it.
  4. Thanks! I think i am referring to that foam backed sticker, was a bit worrried that adding an additional SSD would void the warranty as i would have to remove the foam backed sticker to install the additional ssd. I have been looking everywhere for a video on installing the second ssd but have not had any luck! Thank you!

    Just peel the sticker with the + or x sign on it off the screw and remove it, keeping the rubber washer on it. Install your new NVMe drive and push the screw back in, leaving the rubber washer on to help secure it. I found it too loose if you don't use the washer.

    Hi there, keep in mind this thread is about advanced 15 model 2021 with new secondary nvme slot. Basic model it depends on model, 2018 has secondary hdd installed, 2019 has empty m2 slot that user can use for storage expansion beside the main m2 nvme, not sure if it’s nvme capable.

    Does anyone happen to have a picture handy of the double sided capable slot in the mother board. I’m planning on trying an 8tb ssd as I’m told it works with some tape to hold it in because you can’t use the metal bracket for the ssd. I’m trying to get a picture of the bracket he was talking about before I order the drive or move down to a 4tb if it will also fit in the dual sided slot. One slot will accept a dual sided nvme and the other only a single sided.
