Additional SSD in ec1001na

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-ec1001na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I'm wanting to add a second SSD to my laptop; I have the right one, have opened up the back, but I don't know where to start! Does it go on top of the existing SSD? Do I need a ribbon/caddy?

The specs of your machine is

 

          https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06645258

 

It already has  256 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD you can't put the second one on the top. It only has one M.2 slot for storage. You have 2 options

 

(a) Replace existing with a larger (capacity)  using

             https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p2-ssd
             https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-p5-ssd
     Or similar from reputable vendors.
             One example

(b) Add 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD to your machine but you need to buy Hard drive connector/cable part #  L72698-001 which is N/A now

 

                https://partsurfer.hp.com/Search.aspx?searchText=L72698-001

 

Please use part # and search elsewhere  (I can't find it online)

Solved it, I needed to take a dummy drive out which had a ribbon attached.
