HP Pavilion Gaming 15-ec0101ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, can I use 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD in HP 15-ec0101ax laptop?

And will both 1TB SSD and the preinstalled 1TB HDD work simultaneously or not?

Yes you can use them together, but sometimes the system can hiccup if you try to keep both OS's on.

 

The ideal way to do it is to disconnect the HDD first, then install the NVME SSD and install Windows onto that. Make sure the computer will run without problems.

Then reconnect the HDD and wipe the operating system from it, so you can use it for a data drive.

Also make sure you have the screw for the new M.2 drive in the motherboard before ordering. New drives dont come with a screw. IF its not there, you will want to order that also.
