@mdonnino , welcome to the forum.

 

There is no M.2, SSD, socket on your motherboard.  Therefore, you will have to replace the hard drive (HDD) with a SSD.  Here is a SATA lll SSD on Newegg: https://www.newegg.com/samsung-860-evo-series-1tb/p/N82E16820147673?Description=SSD%20Sata&cm_re=SSD...

 

You will have to use a 2.5" to 3.5" adapter to make it fit properly in HDD drive bay.  I have this adapter: https://www.newegg.com/siig-sc-sa0h12-s1/p/N82E16811990004?Description=2.5%22%20to%203.5%22%20drive%...

 

I recommended a Samsung SSD because I believe they work better with the HP BIOS.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to help you setup the SSD once it is installed:  https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-or-Laptop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/73048...

 

In your situation it will be necessary to use a USB 3.0 to SATA lll adapter to connect your SSD to your AIO.  Here is an example:  https://www.startech.com/HDD/Adapters/USB-3-SATA-adapter-cable-with-UASP~USB3S2SAT3CB

 

This will allow you to clone the HDD to the SSD without any problems.  I plan to buy this adapter soon.
