Thank you for the additional information, @s-malik!

 

Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the computer.  On Page 59 are instructions on how to connect a secondary drive to the motherboard.  You should be able to find a bay inside of the case to install a 2.5" SSD.  You will need to buy an adapter for the SSD.  I have seen members use velcro to hold a small SSD in place if there are no bays available.  You will need a SATA power and data cable to connect the drive.

@s-malik , welcome to the forum.

 

What is the full model or product number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information.
