Solved!

Where is the ssd Boot drive in the Omen 900-260XE

HP Recommended
Omen 900-260XE
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

There are 4 drive bays on the cube and in the drive Bay 1, there is a magnetic Segate 2.5 TB drive.  The Boot disc is a 475GB SSD and it's running out of space.  The other three drive bays are empty.  Where is this drive so I can upgrade it to a 2TB SSD?

Glad that you found the M.2, SSD.  Yes, after you have cloned the current SSD to the new one, you should go into the BIOS/UEFI and select the new SSD as the boot drive.

 

Here is the Motherboard Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/omen-x-by-hp-desktop-pc-900-200i/17155887/document/c05787238

 

You can look at the motherboard diagram to see where everything is located; including the M.2.
