    I have an Alienware 17 R1 and recently decided to buy an mSATA drive (Samsung 860EVO) but it didnt come with the screws to hold it in place on the motherboard. What size screws should I be looking for and where Mingus be a good place to look I’m in the US. Thanks

    Actuall I have found the screws. Next question on the 17 R1 can an mSATA be used as a boot drive?

    Yes. Mine came with SK hynix 256GB mSATA as win8.1 OS drive.
    I put aditional Samsung 850 pro as win x OS drive since I had to reinstall windows as it got corrupted and left the skhynix one for games n programs.
    I hate win x!
