One reason the power supply does not have the needed connections is the fact that the present power supply is under sized - the spec page indicates it to be 180w

180 W Gold efficiency power supply

 That graphics card - direct from the AMD page  Radeon™ RX 570 Graphics

Minimum PSU Recommendation - 450 W
So - IF/When you change the power supply, the pick a new one that has the required connections.  In checking on that motherboard, no clear pictures are found on the HP site however pictures from elsewhere indicate it could be that is uses a propriety connection, so a conventional PSU will probably not work.

The Old Man is correct. The HP M01 is a computer series, and all models utilize a uniquely designed HP PSU. This spreadsheet will guide you.
