SSD Sata brand compatibility

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming laptop 15-dk0056wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all. Fine I hope.

I have a little question about my laptop. HP Pavillion gaming laptop 15-dk0056wm.

Originally, it cames with only 256 ssd nvme drive.

After disassembled it, I saw a second drive place. I want to add this ssd sata 

My question is to know if there is compatibility between my laptop and this ssd

supported Hard drive + solid-state drive combination:

2-TB, 5400-rpm, 7.2-mm hard drive + 256-GB, M.2, PCIe, NVMe solid-state drive with TLC


So it should be possible to use a 2,5" SSD instead of a HDD

Yes, you can use 2.5" SATA SSD.  The WD drive from Amazon is fine. Can you see cable for HDD ? If not, you have to buy


  • The hard drive cable is available using spare part number L56898-001
  • The hard drive brackets are not available as a spare part.  (and this is the killer)
