 I have an HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 Desktop PC. Can I add additional hard drive, can I add additional memory? Can I upgrade to Windows11?

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the product specs for your PC.

 

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 Desktop PC Product Specifications | HP® Customer Support

 

According to the specs you can upgrade the memory as much as 4 x 8 GB of DDR3-1600 memory.

 

This should be a compatible 8 GB memory chip for your PC:

 

Crucial 8GB DDR3L-1600 UDIMM | CT102464BD160B | Crucial.com

 

Your PC has 4 SATA connectors so you should be able to add a second hard drive, but you will need to purchase a SATA data cable as most likely there isn't a spare one inside the PC.

 

Your PC does not meet Microsoft's minimum hardware requirements to support W11.

 

If you are interested in installing W11 on your PC as is, you can read this discussion for how I upgraded several HP and Dell notebook and desktop PC's that did not meet the W11 hardware requirements to W11 22H2.

If the in-place upgrade fails, you should be able to clean install W11 using the bootable W11 installation flash drive you made with Rufus.
