Add SSD drive to All-in-One PC?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 24-r009na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I am planning to get HP Pavilion 24-r009na from high street store, but I want also to buy SSD hard drive to install it. Am I able to do it or do I need to ask in store for them in order to do it? I've done it in the past to my laptops, hower not sure if warranty won't be void in this case with HP. Can you please assist?

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!

 

Buying an SSD and "migrating" the preinstalled OS and setup to that will NOT void the warranty --but it is not a simple thing  to do, primarily because you have to mess around with changing partition sizes since the SSD is most likely to be a LOT smaller than any HDD that comes included.

 

If this were mine, I would order it with an SSD already installed, and preferrably, one that is 256GB minimum size.

Thanks for a prompt reply. The price difference in UK is about £300-£350 between non-SSD and SSD, however I've seen the SSD drives on eBay for under £100, therefore thought about this idea..

I have no idea what the cost will be to order the PC from HP with an SSD already installed, it may actually be less additional cost than buying one yourself -- the difference is one of convenience.

 

You need special hardware (which is not free) and special software (which is free) and a considerable investment of time, in order to "migrate" an installed OS setup from an HDD to an SDD.  I have done it numerous times, but I have all the hardware and software needed to do it.
