Thank you for joining HP Forums.
I'll be glad to help you :)
As I understand you want to add another drive to the computer,
And you need the part numbers for the SATA cables to connect to your drive,
As far as I know, the SATA cables should come with the new HDD that you would purchase (if they haven't)
You could use this link to order one via HP: Click here

The mini units use an M.2 electronic (chip) drive. It is available on the mothewrboard as 2 separate sockets. One M.2 socket 1 and One M.2 socket 3, It is not a conventional hard drive or SSD drive.
