My laptop has a 128 gb SATA M.2 SSD.
I wish to upgrade it's capacity to a 1 To SSD drive, but I lack the information regarding it's compatibility, hence 3 questions come to my mind :
- Would a 1 To NVMe M.2 SSD work in my laptop ? (Crucial's site only proposed NVMe type SSD's as compatible with my laptop model)
- Alternatively would a 1 To SATA M.2 SSD do the trick ? I am unsure about my BIOS capacity to handle such storage, and I don't know how to check beforehand.
- At last but not least, is there any specification documents regarding the motherboard ? The only thing I could find was the motherboard's ID, but I was unable to find any more info about it.
Apart from the constructor sites, I based my research on sites such as
Any help would be gladly appreciated 🙂
Looking forward to reading you,

The specs of your machine is
It has 1 TB 5400 rpm SATA. I don't know where 128 gb SATA M.2 SSD. comes from. Its supports both M.2 SATA and NVMe but it is safer to same as existing drive.
The capacity is very high but due to physical limitation you can use up to 2TB.
No, HP does NOT supply detailed information for motherboard of notebooks. New modern HP consumer class notebooks have system boards which contain CPU, Windows, dGPU (if applicable) and RAM (if applicable).

First of all, many thanks for your quick and helpfull answer ;
To clarify, the SSD was included in the machine from the get go and should be of origin.
I saw the specs page in the support section, but it was lacking the aforementioned connector compatibility and maximum capacity.
In this case, is there a PCIe generation limitation in terms of compatibility with the motherboard ?
