Hi:

 

I'm somewhat surprised that a 2 TB NVMe SSD doesn't work.

 

HP only offered drives up to 1 TB in the model series, but that is normally just what HP offered in the model series, not the maximum capacity supported.

 

See chapter 1 of the service manual.

 

Maintenance and Service Guide (hp.com)

 

Perhaps the 15-fa0xxx model series is an exception.

Hi Paul, as you said, that information is what HP offers, currently my laptop has 32 GB RAM but the service manual indicates 16 GB as maximum. Regarding storage says 1 TB but doesn't specify as maximum. What I realized is my new 2 Tb SSD disk is PCIe Gen3, in service manual says PCI3-4 (Gen 4?), maybe this is the reason my laptop doesn't boot with this disk?

Hi:

 

Perhaps that could be the reason, but I would have thought a PCIe Gen 3 SSD would work in a Gen 4 slot.

 

Usually the slots/drives are backward compatible.

 

You would probably be better off with a PCIe Gen 4 SSD so you can benefit from the faster read/write speeds.
