Solved! MSI gl73 8rd replace parts

Sep 19, 2020
Purchased a laptop at a pawn store that seems to be missing m.2 & a 8g ram stick. Upon searching parts I was cautioned not to get 32g ram because some laptops dont work well with it and not to try to boot from an m.2 because some laptops have issues with booting from m.2, but instead buy a 500g ssd & game from the m.2.

Any truth to this & or suggestions for replacing/upgrading this laptop would be appreciated
