Product: HP Prodesk 600 G2 SFF
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have just bought a HP Prodesk 600 G2 and have been researching booting from PCIe SSD drives. I have not received the computer yet, but should receive it Thursday. I read this forum thread and it makes sense, but seems to only apply to the Mini based on an excerpt from the following table from this link.
SLOTS DM SFF
Turbo Drive G2 (M.2 PCIe) 1 - M.2 PCIe x4-2230 N/A
1 - M.2 PCIe x4-2280
PCI Express x1 (v3.0) N/A 3 -2.5"� low profile
10W max. power
PCI Express x16 (v3.0) N/A 1 - 2.5"� low profile
35W max. power
Based on this it appears that I need to buy a NVME adapter M.2 PCIe SSD to PCIe x4/x8/x16 converter card. Is this correct, or does the machine directly support the NVME M.2 SSD? If it supports it directly, which slot do I use? Thanks for your assistance.

you have already answered your own question, the specs you posted cleary show two m.2 slots on the motherboard, one is used for the wireless and the other is used for a storage device (ssd) in the 2280 size format
this model is available in several form factors
please look at the HP quickspecs for your model for more information on the exact model you bought
a m.2 connector can be on a motherboard or on a pci-e card as it's just a connector and this conector can be wired up in several different ways with both PCI and PCI-E being commonly used
