Adding an SSD to a Slimline 290-a0020

HP Recommended
HP Desktop Computer Slimline 290-a0020 Pentium Silver J5005 (1.50 Ghz) 4 GB Ddr4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I already have an 1T SATA HD that I want to keep. I'd like to add a 250GB  M.2 NVMe Interface internal SSD with V-Nand Technology. It has a NewarkP motherboard with One M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD. Seems like it may just be a plug and play type if installation, am I right though?  Back in the day I'd just rip it open to see but I've lost my nerves as I got older. 🙂 Thanks for any help.

Hello
Normally yes, this should not be a problem, provided you have the compatible model
You will either have to reinstall windows on it, or if possible create a disk image of the HDD and install it on it!
help yourself from this site anyway:
