    Hello all,

    is it possible to add a second harddrive or SSD to the CF-53 MK1 without loosing the DVD drive?
    Currently I have a 2.5 SSD, and would require a second SSD, preferrably without loosing the DVD.

    Is there a way?

    I can't see it. Not a lot of room inside the 53. Just buy another DVD and use the parts on a HDD /dvd caddy and swap them back and forth. It would be easier.

    Interesting, thank you :)

    The CF-53 MK1 is capable of booting from both M.2 Sata SSDs then? Or is there a catch with the bios?
    Not that I buy such an adapter and suddenly I cannot boot because a dual interface is not supported...

    Don't think it was made or ever intended to have two hard drives but I could be wrong. But what's would be wrong with a USB Caddy drive.
