Hi:

 

No, it will not.

 

If your notebook has a M.2 slot, the slot only supports SATA SSD's not NVMe.

 

If your notebook did not come with a M.2 SSD from HP, the M.2 slot is most likely missing.

 

So make sure you open up the notebook and confirm that there is a M.2 slot before buying a SATA M.2 SSD.

 

See chapter 1 of the service manual for the supported drive types...
