I would like to know if my laptop has a slot for SSD. Actually I have 1TB sata.
If it does, iwhich one? Can I add SSD 1 TB to it?
Thank you for your support

Yes, your notebook has a M.2 slot that supports NVMe SSD's.
See chapter 1 of the service manual for the supported drive types.
If you want to install a 1 TB NVMe drive, that would be fine.
The drive capacities listed in the manual are just what HP offered in the model series.

Thank you for your reply. From the manual I can see this:
Hard drive Support for the following single hard drive and solid state drive configurations:
2 TB 5400 rpm, 7-mm hybrid drive with 8 GB NAND
1 TB 7200 rpm, 9.5-mm hard drive
Support for the following dual-storage configurations
2 TB 5400 rpm, 9.5-mm/7.2-mm hard drive with 256 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 solid state drive
1 TB 7200 rpm, 9.5-mm hard drive with 512 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 solid state drive
1 TB 7200 rpm, 9.5-mm hard drive with 256 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 solid state drive
1 TB 7200 rpm, 9.5-mm hard drive with 128 GB PCIe NVMe TLC M.2 solid state drive
Can I add only 512 NVMe to my laptop along with 1TB sata drive? or can I add 1TB SSD along with the 1TB sata?
Sorry its a bit confusing.

You're very welcome.
The product specs for your notebook indicate that it comes with a 1 TB 2.5" drive.
You cannot add another 2.5" drive to your notebook.
M.2 NVMe SSD's have faster read/write speeds than M.2 SATA drives do.
You can install a M.2 NVMe SSD in your notebook.

Thats great. Thank you very for your support. I hope that I have not bothered you with my questions. I will install windows on the ssd. Do you have a reference for a good ssd 1Tb? I will be grateful if you can share your experiences. Thank you once again
