Upgrade SSD

Product Name: HP Pavilion All-in-One - 27-a2
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 Is it possible to replace the shipped 128GB SSD with one which is at  at least 500 GB?  The specification states that it is a M2 type SSD but it is not stated whether it is mSATA or PCI-e interface

Re: Upgrade SSD

If you provide the complete product name or product number we can lelp you.

 

You left out three characters.

 

look for a service tag on the rear of the AIO PC. The product number ( the format is xxxx#xxx)would be best.

Re: Upgrade SSD

I will have to ask HP.  The resources that I have available do not specify the length, specific type or controller compatibility.

Boot your PC to Windows.

 Hold down the Windows key and tap the X key. From the menu that is displayed click on Device manager.

 

Use the Device Manager and click on disk drives. The brand and part number will be there. Post it here.

Re: Upgrade SSD

Unfortunately, Sandisk keeps the memory type used as a secret. The controller is an odd new type. You can get a 256GB version of yours for about $80.

 

See the Sandisk SSD specs at the following URL.
