Add SATA 2.5" drive? (8QQ67AV_1)

Pavilion 15T (8QQ67AV_1)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I've just ordered a new model 15T 8QQ67AV_1 and I'd like to increase the PCIe SSD as well as add a traditional 2.5" SATA drive for storage.  Is there a space in the chassis to install the 2.5" drive?  If so, what additional hardware will I need?

Additionally, how do I go about transferring the OS to the upgraded PCIe drive?

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Looks like the series does not offer option to have 2.5" HDD/SSD


Normally that means no HDD slot or no parts available to connect to. My machine (not same series) does not have slot for 2.5" HDD/SSD and it even does not have card reader slot, I have to use external SD card reader to add more storage. It is a business class machine.


Those CTO machines are still new and no manual available. You have to wait for few more weeks and you can have a clearer picture


Hope this makes sense.
