    I just got my new Blade 15 base model from Amazon, and I want to upgrade the SSD to a 970 EVO 500 GB SSD, and the hard drive to a 860 EVO 1 TB SSD. I'm completely new to doing this type of thing, and I'm wondering exactly what steps I need to take before I do this. I can't find anything online for doing what I want to do

    If you do not care about the F9 Recovery Feature, you can go ahead and do a fresh OS VIA USB Thumb drive, you can download the OS from windows, the product key is embedded into the motherboard so it will automatically activate, but if you do care, you will have to find a enclosure and clone your main SSD over so you do not lose that feature. and as for your extra SSD you can just allocate it when you install it so you can use it! good luck!

    So for my extra SSD, the only thing I have to do is replace it?

    yes just replace it unless you have files on there, I suggest maybe installing new SSD first and transferring over to new SSD and then install new Extra SSD and transfer back over!

    I have the late 2018 base model that comes with 128 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD. It was $500 off on Prime Day, $1099, and I bought it without a second thought.

    Unfortunately not on advanced model, only base Blade 15 (extra slot 2,5 sata/hdd) and Pro 2019 (secondary m2 slot).
