Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Hi, I am looking to add SSD to my existing computer and was wondering if my Pavilion HPE H8-1234 will support NVMe. I know the is no M.2 slot but I see there is and PCI/M.2 adapter. Thanks

Welcome to the forum.
I am not a HP employee.
You are correct. No M.2 socket on the mainboard.
You can do an PCIe adapter but the storage device will not be a bootable device.
No point in this upgrade if you cannot install the operating system on the drive.

Should have added this:
You can do a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. This upgrade will provide great performance improvements.
There is not much user perceptible performance improvements when comparing a SATA SSD to a M.2 SSD unless you are doing disk intensive tasks.
