Adding 2nd SSD NVMe to OMEN 30L Desktop GT13-0255st

HP Recommended

My Omen Obelisk OMEN 30L Desktop GT13-0255st (1A226AV_1) has two M.2 2280 slots (labeled SSD1 and SSD2) and two HDD SATA connectors (labeled HDD 1 and HDD2).  I currently have three hard drives - one SSD NVMe and two HDD SATA.
I want to add a 4th drive - a second SSD NVMe connected to the M.2 2280 slot (SSD 2).  When I add a second SSD NVME the computer won't boot and would start an endless loop of Windows repair. Is there is something I need to enable to have 2 SSD NVMes? I see other less expensive desktops successfully (https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Add-2nd-SSD-to-Omen-Obelisk-875...) added the second one, but I have no luck so far. Please advise

I'm curious about this also. Is your first M.2 1 TB? Right now I have 1 TB m.2 and a 2 TB hard disk. Would like to add to other slots. How many more slots do I have? I also have a 30L GT13.

May 4, 2020 - 2 PCIe NVMe SSD's configured in RAID0. OMEN 30L Desktop.   I would avoid add a second NVMe.

It was RAID causing all the problems. Changed it twice. First time changed it and the system went to restore mode. I thought it stayed as Non-RAID as I changed it. But no, the system changed it itself to RAID again. Had to change it back to Non-RAID after the system restore and only after that I managed to add the second NVMe. Is there any way to change the RAID to non-RAID so that in case of the HP bios restore it stays as NON-RAID and doesn't go back to RAID as it was shipped? Thanks

I have 2 NVMe slots (shipped with one 2TB NVMe) and 2 Sata HDD drives. Basically 4 drives. Added the second 4TB NVMe. Wanted 8TB but way to expensive

I noticed on my Customized Options page I have "No Raid," so I'm hoping this isn't an issue and I can just install another M.2 NVMe drive. Looking inside I found the "SSD 2." May also try a 4 TB.
