My laptop has a 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD, with an extra empty accessible slot for 2.5 inch hard drive. My question is, can i add in a Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid Drive in with that NVMe? Will they be compatable? And will I need an adapter for the hybrid to connect to motherboard or will it just snap into place?

I am all self taught so sometimes I don't say or explain things right. I have built several desktops but it has been a few years when things seemed simpler. Now I am not sure if I have to stay with another NVMe drive or can i add in the Hybrid for some extra storage?

oh yah...this is my first excursion into opening a laptop.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Well I figured out that yes I can mix nvme and non nvme drives as for the adapter needed or not I can figure that out I guess when I get the drive.
