Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

I see two SATA ports (Link) on the motherboard (both are in use).  Located near the MB CR2032 battery. Yellow and blue connectors.

 

You may not be able to add a additional HDD in this system.

 

There are additional issues which I will not describe. 

 

Two options are to get a larger M.2 PCIe 3.0x4 SSD or a larger SATA HDD.

 

Regards
