Expansion slot in HP Pavilion 510-p030 Desktop?

Does the HP Pavilion 510-p030 Desktop have an expansion slot for an additional hard drive?

Hi,

 

As you can see from the case, it does not have enough room for you to add another HDD. It is a desktop anyway, you can always use external HDD to store data.

 

Regards.

Are there any issues with swapping out the HDD for a SSD and running the computer off the SSD? I assume there will be no issues using the HDD as an external drive.

 

Any suggestions on how to swap the OS from HDD to SSD?

You can add a 2.5" HD or SSD.  See the below image.

There are only two SATA ports on the motherboard so if you have a SATA optical drive installed then you will have to disconnect it and use an external optical drive if you want two internal SATA drives.

I clonned windows 10 OS to SSD 2.5  and the PC boot up just under 20 secs. In order to add 3.5 HDD that came with the HP 510-p030 and use as extra storage, I installed 4 posts 3/4" and 4  screws 6-32 from local hardware store to make the 3.5 drive offset from the SSD so I can plug in 2 cables (1 power and 1 sata removed from DVD drive), reverse the white color sata cable so the straght end can plug into the 3.5 HDD and the 90 degree right angle goes to the main board. Hope this will help. 3.5 HDD
