Solved!

Want to add 4tb SATA drive to HP ENVY TE01-0020

HP Recommended
HP ENVY TE01-0020
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Purchased the HP ENVY TE01-0020.  It has a 512 SSD and a 1TB SATA drive.  I would like to add/include a 4TB SATA drive.  Where is the drive bay to add the 4TB drive?  There are no diagrams anywhere on the internet that I can locate, that shows the location of the 2nd drive bay.  I see the power cable and the SATA 2 slot on the motherboard, but no idea where to install the 2nd drive.  Support was not able to help in any way nor give me a link to diagrams.  Coming here was my last resort.

@Heartandsoul9,

I fully understood you question. That is the only video I had that shows both positions.  Can you not see the 2 hard drive positions?   The hand is on 1st position. To the right is the secondary hard drive tray.  Found this video, here the video shows him lifting the secondary hard drive tray out to install the drive.  That should clarify it.

My apologies, I am not replacing the 1TB drive, I am "adding" a 2nd drive.  So I will have one 1TB drive and a 4TB drive, both in the same case.  There is supposed to be 2 drive slots.  One is being used by the 1TB drive that came with the PC, where is the second drive slot, is my question.  The video shows how to replace.  I want to keep the drive that is there, and add a second HDD.

Deeply appreciate your follow up and the Solution/Kudo flags.

Without you and the other inquiries I would be idling and bored. 😉😀😂
