I want to know what hardware i can add in my notebook.
My old Envy laptop has a 1TB Sata SSD and a 1 TB m.2 Sata so i want to add them to my new laptop.
It would be nice to put them in my new laptop and not trow them away.
My new laptop has a 512 GB m.2 Pcie SSD so i do not know if there is a second m.2 slot that supports m.2 Sata.
I cannot find a service manual or information about my laptop.
Also, will my warranty be ok if i open my laptop?
Thank you for supporting me 🙂

What is your HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 17-cd2xxx ? Which one is old and which one is new ? Manuals server is down at this time. You have to use manuals for the series, HP does not supply manuals for EACH machine.

It's a HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 17-cd2350nd . I can find the normal user manual but not the service manual.
I can open the laptop and see for myself but i do not want to do that before knowing if it make sence to do so.
I probably need a part to connect the SSD to the mainboard and maybe there is no second M.2 slot at all or no SATA support.
So the first thing i need is a service manual with information about the motherboard.

Looks like HP neglected to post the Maintenance Manual for that series. I can ask them to look into it, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Most likely it will be the older manual for the cd0000 first gen series as HP will continue to use the same design for the motherboards across the CD series.
The previous versions all were compatible with both NVMe and SATA, but they didn't have a second M.2 slot. Only one M.2 and one 2.5inch SATA space (old HDD/SATA type). I do not suspect it would change with the cd2000 series if HP continues its tradition. Only best way to know is to go ahead and open it up and try it. Otherwise you might be waiting a long time for HP to respond.
