Need to know the hdd upgrade path

HP Recommended
Pavillion M8307c
Microsoft Windows Vista

I am using the original hdd (500gb) with vista.  It is almost full and I need to upgrade the hdd to accomodate an OS upgrade to Windows 10.  I need to know if the system has any limitations on how big a hard drive it can handle.  Also need to know if there are any limitations on speed/rpm of a new drive it can handle.  Have not been able to find any info on hardware upgrade path online.

Hi:

 

The hard drive capacity would be limited to 2 TB if you plan on using the hard drive as a boot drive.

 

7,200 RPM's would be the max.
