You have to make sure you buy an hdd with 9,5mm height (12,5mm doesn't fit).

There is no way to jumper the drive to SATA1. I would suggest to try a Samsung drive. Several of our M-series users reported them to work well.

Flashing an incompatible BIOS might make your Notebook unusable. You have been warned.
