Hi, I have a question about my HP Omen Obelisk Desktop 875-1040st (product number 6FH15AV). I purchased the PC with ONE 1 TB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD (containing the OS). The motherboard (Shire Z390 PC) has a second M.2 slot for a NVMe SSD. This slot is covered with a plastic cover (labelled SSD2). I would like to install a 2nd NVMe SSD in this slot. However, due to the fact that the option to install a 2nd drive was not available during configuration with HP and some confusing comments I have read online about users who have installed a 2nd SSD in this slot and have experienced issues has left me wondering if this is okay. Can anyone confirm that this M.2 slot is available for use and their won't be any surprises? Furthermore, are there any limitations on SSD size, or particular manufacturers I should avoid?
