What (where) are the M.2 expansion slots?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 27 xa0014
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

According to the manual for my hp 27 xa 0014 computer I have a couple of m.2 expansion slots.  Where are they?  I have looked at all of the manuals and photos of the motherboard and I only see the m.2 slot for the ssd the computer came with.  I feel like I am missing something obvious as I know nothing about computers.  I just want to add storage to my computer and I figured I would buy another ssd and slap it in one of the m.2 "expansion slots" and be done with it.  What am I missing?  What does the manual mean when it says it has 2 m.2 "expansion slots"?

 

Thanks,

JC

Hello
there would be two m2 locations, but you are mistaken the second for wifi only

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

Now I seem to see an HDD connector
If there is the connector for the sata power supply and a slot, you may be able to add another hard drive or ssd sata

 this one :
