Can you help me to find, first is my machine accept an SSD, second which size recommend for this and third, did this AIO have a second drive slot or the SDD dont need a specific bay?

 

Thanks in advance...

@larreaza , welcome to the Community.

 

The Motherboard Specifications state that there is "One M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD".  It doesn't state if it is SATA or NVMe.  Just to be safe, I suggest going with a SATA, M.2, since the hard drive (HDD) is SATA III: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-250GB-SATA-Internal-MZ-N6E250BW/dp/B07822Z77M/ref=asc_df_B07864V6CK/?...

 

If you decide not to buy the one in my link, it will be a good example of what you need.  You can use up to a 2 TB drive for Win 10 without special changes to the drive.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article to help you transition from the HDD to the M.2: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Knowledge-Base/Upgrading-Desktop-or-Laptop-to-a-SSD/ta-p/73048...

You are welcome, @larreaza!

 

I like Samsung SSD's so I use their Data Migration software.  It can only be used for Samsung products.  Here is an article that lists 5 good cloning software products: https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/five-apps/five-free-and-reliable-cloning-tools/

 

There are many more online to choose from.

Ok… I bought the disk, the enclosure and the disk is cloned… I open the PC and the m.2 bay is not there. I change the boot order in the BIoS, but windows apparently only boot from disk C. What else can I do to boot from the USB successfully?

 

thanks!

According to the specifications for your computer there should be "One M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD".  You should install the M.2 in the socket, disconnect the HDD, and boot the computer.  You don't want to have two OS'es on the computer at the same time.

I opened, looked everywhere and nothing found. Question is: can I just remove the HDD (disconnect it) and boot with the USB one?

 

TIA

You can begin tapping F11 when the computer begins to boot.  This will take you to the boot menu.  You can choose which hard drive you want to use.  You would choose the USB drive that is connected.
