Windows 10 S Mode
This unit may arrive in S Mode meaning that no external .exe files can be directly installed onto the unit. You may still install apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store.
This is intended for higher security and performance of the unit.
If you want to install an app that isn’t available on the Microsoft Store, you’ll need to switch out of S Mode.
You can easily switch out of S Mode, however, keep in mind that you cannot go back to S Mode once switched.
Switching Out of S Mode
- On your PC running Windows 10 in S mode, open Settings > Update & Security > Activation.
- In the Switch to Windows 10 Home or Switch to Windows 10 Pro section, select Go to the Store. (If you also see an "Upgrade your edition of Windows" section, be careful not to click the "Go to the Store" link that appears there.)
- On the Switch out of S mode (or similar) page that appears in the Microsoft Store, select the Get button. After you see a confirmation message on the page, you'll be able to install apps from outside of the Microsoft Store.
Installing an SSD
1. Flip the unit over and remove the two screws holding the SSD (M.2 2280) cover in place.
2. Remove the cover and insert your SSD with the contacts facing the right (outlined) as this is where the contacts in the notebook are located. Use the existing threading to screw the SSD into place (outlined).
Note: your SSD may be able to be inserted with either side facing up, however, only one orientation will work with the unit. If you are not able to detect your SSD with one orientation, try to change the orientation of the SSD to show the other side. Be careful not to damage any contacts.
3. Once inserted and secured into place, place the cover back into position, and screw down with the screws removed in step 1.
Installation is now complete.
