Hi,

 

It uses a normal/standard laptop HDD (ie 2.5"):

You are not careful.

I asked some m.2 connector is on the motherboard? PCI-E or SATA? It is not written in the specifications.

 

Samsung 850 evo - SSD M.2 SATA.

Hi,

 

I think you misunderstood the question.  The PC has both a 2.5" HHD and a slot for a M.2 SSD HDD.  The form factors are different.

 

He is NOT asking about this one:

He is asking about the m.2 slot, this one:  http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/downloads/document/Samsung_SSD_850_EVO_M2_Data_She...

Hi K0stya2007,

 

While our PCs are different, both uses the same Bulldozer-4GL motherboard.

 

Here is the product link to your Envy 24-n250ur.
http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-ENVY-24-n200-All-in-One-Desktop-PC-series-(Touch)/11084176/mo...

 

Here is the product link to my Evny 27-p041.
http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04869827

 

The 128 GB SATA III M.2 SSD I tried initially did not work. It was never picked up by the BIOS or in the OS. However, when I tried the Samsung 950 PRO NVMe M.2 256GB drive it was immediately recognized by the BIOS and Windows 10. Here is the link to the ssd that worked in my PC.  I took it out of my other system for testing.
http://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-950-pro-nvme-256gb-mz-v5p2...

 

I was pleasntly suprised that the motherboard supports PCIe NVMe as I was not expecting that.  Now I'm not saying that this will work with your PC but I would definately give it a try (especially if you can return the drive if it does not). Just make sure that the M.2 Slots are enabled in the BIOS otherwise it wont work.

 

HP could have saved us alot of headaches if it simply stated that the M.2 slot is PCIe somewhere in the documentation instead of just "One M.2 slot for SSD" and having us guess.  Anyway, I"m just glad it's working for me.

 

Let us know how it turns out for you.  Good Luck!

Thank you. This is what you need. Correct answer. The answer to my question, and not spam. I installed the PCI-E SSD Kingston. He works.

Hi,

 

what SSD you installed? 2280 or 22110?

I measured distance from the socket to fixation point is 80mm, but HP support sent motherboard image where it says it's 22110... so i'm confused what to buy..

I installed 2280. I am not sure that the 22110 is suitable in length.

Thank you for the info - I measured once again - 22110 will not fit for sure. Strange that HP support documenta are misleading...
