HP Elitedesk 800G2 SFF - M2 SSD & USB type C upgrade

HP Recommended
HP Elitedesk 800G2 SFF
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi! I’ve just bought a “HP Elitedesk 800G2 SFF” desktop computer. According to the menu, it can be upgraded to SSD and there is a USB type C extension on the motherboard, I would like to know:

 

(1) M2. SSD

  • Since there is no M2 slot on the motherboard but the menu states that M2 SSD is supported. Can I use a PCIe adapter to install M2 SSD?
  • Which type of PCIe adapter should I buy, which speed, PCIe x4? Any recommendations?
  • Since only 512GB M2 SSD is mentioned in the menu, may I know can I install a 1TB M2 SSD? What is the max GB of M2. SSD that I can install?

 

(2) Update BIOS

  • Do I need to update BIOS to the latest version in order to boot windows? 
  • How to update it?

 

(3) USB type C

  • Since I found that there is a USB type C extension on the motherboard, can I use a PCIe adapter to add USB type C?
  • Which type of PCIe adapter should I buy, which speed, PCIe x4? Any recommendations?

 

(4) Can I install three Sata SSD?

  • My  “HP Elitedesk 800G2 SFF” doesn’t have a CD-rom, the menu states that the CD-rom slot can install a HDD, can I install a Sata SSD there?
  • And install two SSD in the original SSD slot?
  • What is the Max GB supported for SSD and HDD for that desktop?

 

Thanks a lot!
