    Hello,
    I have a clevo n870hk machine. I would like to switch 2.5 SSD for something like that:
    https://www.addonics.com/products/ad2m2sar.php
    I do not care about performance nor anything like that. I would like to know is adapter like that capable of booting two m.2 ssd at the same time? Will they be recognized on boot manager if I install for example windows and linux?
    Have anyone tried sth like that?

    You need to discover if your laptop supports SATA port multiplication, if not all that board can do is an hardware RAID of two m.2 SATA drivers.

    There is an unpopulated m.2 footprint in the motherboard, if you know how to solder it should be easy to add.

    As per the notes most laptops do not support multiplication.

    I would say go for it and try it. Order from somewhere with an easy return policy if you can't stomach the $35 loss if it doesn't work.

    Is there a reason to do it besides just trying to do it though?

    For a bit more you could order a newer bigger drive instead of reusing old drives. Now if the plan was to put a couple of old drives into the adapter for increased storage by converting them to a larger virtual drive o something along those lines and freeing up the m.2 slot for a new drive then it might be worth it.

    $130 though gets you a spiffy new 1TB drive.
