Updating motherboard on dell xps gen 4
However, if you bought the laptop with a 128 or 256GB drive and want more storage space, you can perform your own upgrade, using a third-party SSD.
All you need is a few minutes of time, along with the correct upgrade SSD, a couple of small screw drivers, an external backup drive and a USB flash drive. You'll want to try booting from it to make sure it works. Click "Create an image of the partition(s) required to backup and restore Windows" in the left pane.
In order to transfer your data, you need to create a backup file on an external hard drive.
Don't forget to use a cup or bowl to store your loose screws so you don't lose them.
You'll need two screwdrivers -- we used the smallest pentalobe we could find and a Phillips Head #000.
To determine, what kind of SSD you need, first check to see whether your XPS 13 has an Intel 5th gen (aka Broadwell) or 6th Gen (aka Skylake) processor. Choose your USB device as the location for the ISO image and click Finish.
If your CPU's model number begins with a 5 (ex: Core i5-5200U), you have Broadwell but if it begins with a 6 (ex: Core i5-6200U), you have Skylake.
