HP ENVY Desktop PC TE02-0000i (3Y3Q7AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Hi, 

On https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-envy-desktop-pc-te02-0000i/2100828663/document/c08222162 it says my system has: 

  • One PCI Express Gen 5.0 x16 (Gen5 ready)
  • Three M.2 expansion slots:
    • One M.2 socket 1, Key A
    • Two M.2 socket 3, Key M (one for SSD card PCIe Gen 3.0 x4)

I have  a motherboard:

  • HP name: BlizzardU
  • SSID: 894B

I don't have much info about the motherboard. Is there any info on this board?

I did find an sort of upgrade manual http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c08059859.pdf

 

Where are the expansion slots? Is there a graphic lay out picture of the motherboard available?
I have one main SSD 1tb, but where can I put another M.2 SSD?

 

I only see Sata cables and a 3,5 inch bracket inside the desktop.

Solved: Re: M2 slot position - HP Support Community - 8164120

Even if the motherboard is different, it's almost every time the same problem!
Most of the time the m2 slot will be hidden by the graphics card

I don't quite understand what you mean
but if it is to know if the free port at the level of the graphics card is that m2 then yes, the second slot m2 must be occupied, by the wifi

and is there more info on the motherboard?

 

for motherboards, no more images, descriptions limited most of the time
I now invite users to use the Feedback option

https://support.hp.com/us-en

but what else would you like to know about the motherboard?

I’m sorry, I mean: if the second free M2 slot is underneath the graphics card, can this slot be used or is this impossible because of where the slot is located?

 

more info on the motherboard: I think it’s strange that there is limited info on this motherboard. Shouldn’t there be a drawing/scheme/graphic on this board explaining where’s everything to be found?

 is this it?

and if so, that screw should be changed to connect it right?

Is it the same size as the primary SSD? 80?

HP Recommended

With a "standard" m2 ssd, there is no problem.
if it's an ssd with a heat sink that's too big, maybe not!
the screw, is not available, so try, that of the other SSD, you will have to buy the same one, I read quite often, that aps supplied with the New SSD

for information as I said, now it's like that, I don't know why hp no longer does this type of document
sometimes we have this , but not for all computer
