OMEN 17-w201nk
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

So I own a OMEN - 17-w201nk

And I want to know if I'm going to be able to upgrade to a 2 To SSD by WesternDigital which is an M.2

Here's the SSD that I'm willing to purchase : https://shop.westerndigital.com/products/internal-drives/wd-blue-sata-m-2-ssd#WDS200T2B0B

 

Will this work on my laptop? And can I use it as the main booting drive instead of the stock HDD that came with it because I'm willing to remove that one due to slow speeds
