@Matej21 , welcome to the forum.

 

I highly suggest that you install a M.2 SSD in the socket provided.  The M.2 will be much faster than a standard SSD.

 

Here is the Motherboard Specifications page.  If you look at the fourth item up from the bottom on the left facing side of the diagram, it shows the M.2 SSD socket (Socket 3, Key M).  I like Samsung M.2 SSD's.  They seem to work better with HP BIOS'es.

 

If you decide not to go with the M.2, here is a page of adapters from Newegg that will help you make the choice.

I don't know if this helps but I have just replaced a 250GB SSD with a 500GB drive. I used Easeus Free version to backup the drive, then installed the backup on the new drive. It worked perfectly, less than 30 minutes beginning to end. The only difference is that I am using Win 7 Pro, but I cannot see why it wouldn't work just as well with Win 10
