Replace Optane SSD with 1TB SSD

HP Pavilion All-in-One 24-xa0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can the Intel Optane SSD be replaced with 1TB SSD. I would like to boot from the 1TB SSD that replaces the original Intel Optane SSD and use the 1TB HDD that came as the original boot device as backup.

I can't find any info on the Optane slot.

@concert,

 

Thank you for replying,

 

After reviewing the details, I see that there is One M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD.

 

Please go through the Motherboard specifications, and scroll down to Expansion slots

 

If you wish to try other parts you can try it at your own discretion, HP Doesn't recommend any upgrade/downgrade of any hardware parts or software that is bundled with the product. It may affect the manufacturer's warranty and performance. 

 

I hope this answers your question, do let me know if you need any further assistance.

that said, If the information I've provided was helpful, 

give us some reinforcement by clicking the solution and kudos buttons, 

that'll help us and others see that we've got the answers!

Good Luck.

Thank You for the help.

Before purchasing the HP AIO I did not realize the  only "expansion slot" was already occupied with Intel Optane SSD.

I am guessing that to replace the Optane SSD with boot SSD (since there is only one slot) repartitioning of the discs, etc. is

involved. This is beyond my expertise. Unless someone else tries this I am happy with the performance; just don't have the 

internal backup capability.

@concert,

 

It's great to have you back and your patience is greatly appreciated.

 

As I understand you have a concern regarding the optane memory. Optane memory is used to boost the performance and it's better to upgrade the hard drive rather than removing the optane memory.

 

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need any further assistance. I'll be more than happy to help you.

 

Take care now and do have a fabulous week ahead. 🙂
