Adding a second SATA drive

HP Recommended
Envy 700-414
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a 700-414 desktop running Windows 10 Home 64-bit with a Hewlett-Packard 2AF7 motherboard. I want to add a SSD (SATA 3) and maintain the HDD. Does this model / motherboard support 2 SATA drives?

Hello

 

I see at least four SATA ports on lower right corner of motherboard in this picture for your PC (yellow-blue-white-dark blue).

So now check where you have HDD in cage to see if room for more HDD or SSD.

 

Maybe need a 3.5 inch to 2.5 inch adapter to install SSD in cage.

 

Grzy
