Gotcha.

 

I missed that on the specs.

 

Basically you want to swap out the 128 GB SATA M.2 drive for a NVMe drive.

 

Shouldn't be any problem at all.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05260118

 

Chapter 1, page 2 states that NVMe M.2 SSD's are supported.

You're very welcome.

 

You should be able to but...

 

Here is the issue with the notebooks that come with a 2.5" drive only...the operating system is on that drive naturally, and when you add a NVMe SSD, the PC still wants to boot from the primary drive which is the 2.5" one.

 

Many times you have to remove the OS from the 2.5" drive so the PC boots from the NVMe drive.

My OS is on the M.2 so this shouldn't be a problem...
The 2.5 HDD is only for storage
