> there is no hdd ...
1. find the SATA sockets on the motherboard, and trace the SATA cables -- one to the CD/DVD device, and one to the HDD (wherever it is "hiding").
2. If your computer has no such SATA cables, then your computer does not have a CD/DVD device, and might not have a HDD. Some computers have a small-capacity (32GB or 64GB) SSD (Solid State Device) connected directly to a socket on the motherboard, instead of a HDD.

As you are composing a "reply", you should see:
Rich Text HTML Preview
Under it, you should see:
B I U
S (triangle) </> (turn left) (happy face) (chain-links) (camera) Photos ...
Take a picture, with your smart-phone, and copy the picture to your computer.
Then, click the word "Photos", to select the image, and to copy it into your reply, in the same way that I inserted the image (above) of the "M.2" memory-card.
Here's a link to an image of the SATA ports on the motherboard, with one SATA cable attached:
How many SATA cables are attached to your motherboard?
Does one cable lead to the CD/DVD device?
Does one cable lead to a HDD?
Do you see a 'M.2' socket somewhere on the motherboard?
