Hi:

 

Your notebook only has one M.2 slot for a NVMe SSD.

 

Your notebook's M.2 slot is only PCIe Gen 3, so a Gen 4 NVMe SSD will not perform at it maximum read/write speeds.

 

You can keep the mechanical hard drive installed and use it for storage.

 

See chapter 1 of the maintenance and service guide for the supported drive configurations:
