Hello there, I have a question about my pre-built OMEN - 880-139nx. I want to change my old SSD hard drive(the one came with the PC) and replace it with 1TB SDD. I have not replaced any SSD before and I read that I need to find the right SSD SATA for my motherboard. I have looked at my motherboard, but I didn't find anything that tells me what type of SATA does my motherboard support. I also checked the HP website about my PC's motherboard, but I learned nothing. My motherboard is a Tampa2 type Figure. Again I'm not an expert just a person who wants to upgrade his SSD. Your answer will be appreciated.

It has 128GB M.2 NVMe SSD and 1TB of normal 1TB 7200RPM HDD. Now, if you wish to change old SSD (which is 128GB M.2 SSD), all you need is to replace it with another M.2 NVMe SSD which does not use SATA port, it uses M.2 socket 3, key M slot.
You can use Device Manager to see its brand and model then buy same specs with 1TB OR use use Crucial P1/P2 series or Samsung 970 EVO series or similar. For example
You can see this slot on the right hand side of the motherboard which is labelled : M.2 SSD socket (key M). You don't need SATA. By the way, machine uses SATA 3.
