Solved!

OMEN by HP 17-cb0600nd upgrade possibilities

HP Recommended

Hi all,

 

A quick question before I'm hopefully purchasing this gaming notebook. What are the possibilities for upgrading disks on this specific type? Can I add an extra M2 SSD disk or am I bound to "normal" SSD only?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the crucial memory/SSD report for that model.

It supports NVMe M.2 SSD's.

Hi Paul,

 

thank you for your answer. Can you give me an answer to the question if this specific model has the possibility to add an extra M2 drive. I have seen models that has the protective cover for two M2 drives but only 1 slot was actually attached to the motherboard.

 

Thanks in advance!

You're very welcome.

 

Now, I understand...that model already has one NVMe drive installed.

 

Unfortunately I can't guarantee there is a second M.2 slot, but according to chapter 5, page 32 of the service manual, it indicates that the model series comes with two M.2 slots for two SSD's.

 

The computer offers two solid-state drive sockets as shown in the following illustration:
(1) Primary solid-state drive
(2) Secondary solid-state drive

Alright, thank you again for your swift answer. If not possible I'm pretty sure an extra "normal" SSD is also an option then.
