Solved!

No connector on motherboard for provisioned secondary SSD

HP Recommended
HP OMEN 17-cb0588na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HI all. I am not sure if this is a factory fault or just some models have this as normal.

After watching an YouTube video review on HP OMEN 17 laptop (i own the similar one) i wanted to add higher capacity SSD to my laptop but when i removed the back cover i saw there was provision for second SSD and circuit no and pins etc on the motherboard but strangely no connector.

HP chat support weren't much help so i thought i check HP forum community for help. 

I've attached the pictures of my motherboard and the YouTube video where at 3:44 you can clearly see connector for secondary SSD.

Older 17" machine had more room to add more drives. Nothing missing.
