Hello everyone, I just bought this laptop and it arrived yesterday, while I was installing a second NVMe SSD to have 2TB of storage, I noticed that this model has an empty SATA port to plug in a 2.5 HDD, but my computers battery is placed in a way that doesn't allow you to insert the HDD into the SATA port cause it blocks almost half of it; I was wondering if there's a way to move the battery so I can use that port, or if this design flaw is a consistent thing for this model, or I'm just out of luck, thanks in advance for your replies :D

I never seen no MSI GF75 11UG Katana, it's either MSI GF76 11UG Katana or MSI GF75 10UG Katana.

Well in the specs and all reviews of this model, they only talk about NVME compatibility, not sure that an introduction laptop motherboard could handle a extra HDD or SSD on that SATA port, if it works it would severely impede the performance of the 2x NVMEs that would be installed. If you persist with your idea, you would have to purchase a smaller capacity battery that is compatible with your model, because you cannot move that battery in any way, I would highly suggest testing with another SATA HDD, if you have one, before purchasing another battery or another SATA SSD.
Good luck!
