Add m.2 SSD to Pavilion 15 CC665CL

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15 CC665CL
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to add a SSD drive to my laptop.   I have seen conflicting information on the m.2 SSD spec.  Posts in the community have stated that the m.2 drive is SATA and the manual I downloaded from HP says it is a NVMe.  Which is it?  I purchased a NVMe 1TB  - installed it but it is not recognized by the system.  Also, It there a size restriction for the SSD?  Both specs I have seen show 512GB max from HP manuals .  Can I also run dual SATA drive that came with the system and m.2 drive?

Hi, @Huffer 

 

The manual is incorrect regarding NVMe support in the 15-cc6xx model series.

 

Only the 15-cc1xx series supports NVMe.

 

There are several forum members that tried to install a NVMe SSD in a 15-cc6xx model and none of them worked.

 

Only SATA M.2 SSD's will work.

 

You can probably do a search on the forum and you will find these discussions.

According to this Manual:

 

Manual 

 

15-cc1xx and 15-cc6xx can accept PCIe/NVME M.2 SSD but 15-cc0xx and -cc5xx are SATA only. 

 

Which NVME M.2 did you install? Try removing the existing SATA drive and see if the NVME M.2 is then recognized. 

 

There is no max capacity; the manual just catalogues what HP offered for sale. You can install as large a capacity M.2 SSD as you can find to buy. And yes you can have dual storage SATA plus NVME M.2.

Anytime.

 

Here is one archived post I found regarding the subject.

 

There are a few others.

 

I don't recognize the M.2 that I bought in the pavilion 15 c... - HP Support Community - 7484749

 

The problem is that there are two service manuals and they both indicate partially wrong info.

 

One indicates NVMe support for both the 15-cc1xx model series and the 15-cc6xx model series.

 

The 15-cc1xx does, and the 15-cc6xx doesn't

There is another one that indicates only M.2 SATA support for the 15-cc1xx model series and the 15-cc6xx model series.

 

That one is wrong because the 15-cc1xx model series does support NVMe SSD's.

Thanks for your help.  I was hoping to get a NVMe but I just purchased the SATA.  I very much appreciate input.

I have finally gotten around to purchasing and installing a WD Blue 3D NAND SSD m.2 2280 1TB SATA Drive.  It does not show up in explorer.  Any Thoughts?

Hi:

 

You probably have to initialize the drive using the Windows disk management utility...
