Recently purchased a HP Zbook 15v G5 workstation. I was looking at upgrading the RAM and the storage space. I've got the RAM handled, no big deal. Stumped when it comes to storage. I opened it up and it appears to have a 256GB M.2 SSD installed. No 2.5" SSD, I see the blank space where it would go, just not connection piece?
Just doing some light photo editing and graphic design, but I feel I need more than the 256GB which is half used anyway. Best way to update one or both?

Firstly you need the following parts for 2.5" HDD/SSD
- Hard drive bracket part # L20325-001
- Hard drive cableL part # 20324-001
- Miscellaneous Kit (includes WLAN Mylar, hard drive cover Mylar, fingerprint reader Mylar, and fingerprintreader conductive tape) part # L29469-001
(a) Upgrade M.2 SSD to larger capacity up to 2TB (or just adding 2.5" HDD/SSD.
(b) Add 2.5" HDD/SSD after installing the above kits. For example

Hi! Thanks for your response.
So is the 2.5" drive with the parts ordered, is it going to be plug and play? or does it take some skill to install the new parts beyond a screw driver?
As for the M.2, I will have to restore the system info from the 256GB drive to the new drive, Correct? Is there any suggested method for this type drive?
