What for specifications do the SSD has? I want to replace, too but do not know the execactly specs. I bought a 30GB m-sata ssd and this is not accepted by bios and does not work.

It seems you'll need a miniPCIe SSD and not a m-sata (even if the form factor seems the same) and that's why your bios doesn't recognize it.
