HP Pavilion gaming TG01-1185t adding 2nd Hard Drive

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I want to add a 2nd hard drive.  There is a 2nd connection for the power cord.  No problem there.  Does it matter what SATA I plug into.  I know there is a 1 & 2 and there might be a 3rd.

Normally, you would use SATA 1 for the main HDD/SSD, but you have a M.2, SSD, as you main drive.  So, you can use SATA 1 or SATA 2 for the second HDD.
