Thank you so much for this guide! Do you have to do anything with the SSD? Some videos about this say you have to change it but don’t go into detail as to why.

I’m glad you found the guide helpful! You should be able to upgrade your RAM without needing to touch the SSD at all (and vice versa). Neither component should have an impact on the other. The videos probably mention the RAM and SSD together because its convenient to do both upgrades at once.
