@ITGuySanDiego 

 

Its specs:

 

      https://support.hp.com/hk-en/document/c06353706

 

Its motherboard has

 

  • One PCIe x16 socket
  • One PCIe x1 socket
  • One M.2 socket 1, 2230 type for WLAN
  • One M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD

The M.2 socket 3 supports SSD Drive Socket with SATA or up to four PCIe lanes. or in short: it supports BOTH

Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

HP is not providing a motherboard image of your PC. How many SATA ports on the Lincs motherboard?

 

This motherboard may only have two occupied SATA ports (HDD and optical drive). Every motherboard (MB) I have worked on which supports both M.2 SATA and PCIe drives disables a SATA port when you install a SATA drive in the M.2 socket.

 

This would not be good for you if your MB only has two SATA ports.

 

HP also does not identify if the M.2 socket is Key B, Key M, or Key B+M.

 

I would tend to think HP may be only supporting M.2 socket PCIe devices on this motherboard. Socket 3 supports up to four PCIe lanes to move data.

 

A M.2 SATA device (usually keyed B+M) will install in a Key M socket but the device may not work.

 

This is confusing. I have seen quite a few HP consumer MBs which only support M.2 PCIe. I have also seen HP only provide two PCIe lanes (X2) to the M.2 X4 (socket 3) MB component.

 

Regards
