I want to install NVME

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Desktop - 750-129C
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I currently have the HP ENVY Desktop - 750-129C  Intel i7.

I want to install NVME (M.2) on my desktop, is this possible?

 

Or, if not possible, keep my CPU, and change the Motherboard, while installing to NVME.

Will that be possible and will it damage the computer?

Can you recommend what type of Motherboard to use?

 

Thank you

Hi,

 

It is not possible to install a M.2 NVME drive on your motherboard as a boot disk. Your motherboard does not have a Key M M.2 socket.

 

I don't recommend trying to install a non HP motherboard in a HP chassis. HP may modify front panel pinouts on I/O. Impossible to know this until you install the MB only to see something does not work or shorts out.

 

Buy a new PC if you want M.2 NVME speeds. Or upgrade the current platter HDD to a 2.5 inch SATA SSD for improved system responsiveness.

 

Regards

Hi,

 

You're very welcome.

 

Almost all new PCs have M.2 sockets. Most PCs will ship with a M.2 boot drive containing W10.

 

Check the specs to verify. Try to buy a PC having at least a 500 GB M.2 drive so you don't run out of storage.
