M.2 SSD slot - NVMe or SATA?

Product Name: Pavilion 24-b277na
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm looking to buy the Pavilion 24-b277na, and looking up the specs on the HP website, I can see the Palau 2GF motherboard supports an M.2 SSD (


Since the computer only comes with an HDD, I'd like to fit a small SSD into the M.2 slot. However, after a bit of reading it seems there's SATA M.2s and NVMe M.2s. I can't find out which type is supported by the computer. I'm also unclear on PCIe support - I looked up a review of a SATA Samsung 850 evo M.2, which states it doesn't support PCIe so many motherboards may not support it.


So, does the computer support NVMe M.2s, and do I have to worry about PCIe support if I get a SATA M.2?


Thanks in advance Smiley Happy

Dear customer,


i'll suggest using  Sandisk  M.2, 2242, Z400s, 128GB, SATA3 which is used in the same product but different model.
