nvme m.2 key m installation on hp pavilion wave desktop 600-a014

HP Recommended
pavilion wave desktop model 600-a014
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bougth a sabrent rocket m.2 nvme (https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Rocket-Internal-Performance-SB-ROCKET-1TB/dp/B07LGF54XR/ref=sr_1_2?dc...) drive seeing that this motherboard had a key M m.w socket

Expansion Slots:
  • One M.2 socket 1, key A
  • One WLAN LED header
  • One M.2 socket 3, key M

the slot is definetly not what I was expecting. 20200622_212636.jpg

the drive doesn't fit and it looks more like it'd need to be one of these drives :

does anyone know what type of nvme ssd will fit in this slot?

@dmoneyballer,

Wrong M.2 socket.  That is Key A, a WI-FI card slot.

Are you sure? The wifi card was slotted into the other m.2 slot on the back of the motherboard and it connected to wifi fine before I opened it to install the new nvme drive.

The slot I was looking for was on the back of the motherboard.
