OMEN by HP 25L Gaming Desktop PC GT15-0000i RCTO Base Models (LaprasI)
Microsoft Windows 11

I want to add more PCle M.2  SSD storage to my desktop Omen 25L GT15-0000i.

 

Currently, it has 1 - 256GB M.2 PCle SSD drive, no SSD or SATA hard drives, and 2 of the 4 memory slots are taken up with 16 GB memory each making 32 GB.

 

1.  Where is the 2nd PCle M.2 location on my motherboard?

2.  If I add the 2nd PCle M.2, then can I show both the first one and the second one combined for 1 drive?

3.  If there is no 2nd PCle M.2 location, can I swap out the current 256GB PCle M.2 for a 1TB PCle M.2?

4.  If my only choice is to add the SATA SSD, then can I combine the SATA with the existing PCle M.2 for 1 drive?

 

Thanks, toborm

2 /  I don't know if possible, and if one of them is down you'll lose everything, I'm not sure that's the best use

 

I do not answer the other questions since the second m2 is possible if it is this type of motherboard
