Add SSD in Pavilion Notebook

Product Name: HP Pavilion Notebook 17-ab200n
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi guys,

 

Im interested in purchasing a HP Pavilion Notebook 17-ab200ni. This notebook comes with a 2TB internal SATA drive. I want to add a 128Gb SSB (form factor 2) drive, similar to what the OMEN comes with as standard. Does the Pavilion 17 support SSD drives to be added?

 

Thanks,

J

J,


Specs: http://support.hp.com/ph-en/document/c05402434

Manual: Page 1, 2, 21, 40
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05357606

You can put M.2 2280 SSD (PCIe NVMe or SATA-3 TLC) in its slot. Make it boot drive and use HDD as storage drive.

@Jakkie

 

You can add a second SATA/SSD drive.

 

Do you have Touch Screen???

 

Your manual here.

Re: Add SSD in Pavilion Notebook

Thanks all,

 

I had a look at the manual you guys sent me and it seems that the device does support SSD. I was a bit worried that it may not have a slot for the SSD and that I would have had to replace the original 2TB drive with a SSD 3.5'' M1 drive, but it seems that I can in fact have two drives installed at the same time. One SSD for boot and the original 2TB for storage.

 

@REO51ST, nope, the one I am looking to purchase is non-touch.

 

Thanks for the support.

 

Regards,

J

Re: Add SSD in Pavilion Notebook

Guys,

 

I just want to confirm. The two manual links you sent me respectively, they are definitly for this particular model? 

 

HP Pavilion - 17-ab200ni

 

Product Code: 1DM41EA

 

There are a number of Pavilion 17 models available, so I just want to confirm that the manual actuallty applies to this particular model?

 

Thanks,

J

Yes it is the exact same Manual for your model.

And it supports dual drive configuration as suggested.

Then without touch screen you can have Primary HDD, Secondary HDD and the M.2.
