Adding a SSD to HP omen

HP Recommended
HP omen 4nn43aa#aba

I would like to add an additional ssd to this product.  Does it have a slot and what do I need to purchase to install an ssd beyond just the drive?  Will this drive work? https://www.bestbuy.com/site/samsung-860-evo-1tb-internal-sata-solid-state-drive/6178649.p?skuId=617...

I believe that you will have a drive bay where the optical drive can be installed.  HP no longer provides this information, however.  If you don't have a spare drive bay you may be able to install the SSD in the bay with the HDD.  Another option is velcro it to a vacant space in the case.  The SSD's are very light and work great installed this way.  You will need a SATA power connector on the power supply unit (PSU) and a SATA data cable that will connect to a spare SATA port on the motherboard.

 

There is a Primary SATA port (Item 14) and Secondary SATA port (Item 15) on the motherboard:
