I preordered the Creator 17M A10SE-216 model in early May. While I'm still waiting for those to ship, I know I want to add another SSD drive in the 2nd HDD bay when it arrives. I'll either put a Crucial MX500 or Samsung SATA SSD in there, but will I need to purchase a separate SATA cable or power cable to install it? Or are the connections already in the laptop? If I need a SATA cable, does it need to be straight on both ends, or the angled one to make it fit properly? I was just gathering up some things while I wait for the computer to arrive and wanted to make sure I have everything I need to install the 2nd drive when it does arrive. Thank you for your help!

Hope you received your toy and happy with it.
Just for information, you should have ordered NvME SSD for best performance. Creator can hold two NvME SSD disks inside or One NvME and one M2 (Sata) disks at once. Both has similar shapes but different interfaces. NvME has much better performance compared to SATA standard.

I check website Creator 17M only has 1 NVMe SSD slot
