Can I Install a Second Hard Drive in my laptop?

HP Pavilion Notebook - K8Z00AV
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I was wondering if I could install a second hard drive in my laptop. I currently have the orignal 1 TB hard drive but was thinking about buying an additional SSD Hard Drive to install in my laptop. 

Thanks!

Here is the Manual:

There is a single bay for a 2.5 inch SATA hard drive/SSD. The only way to have a second hard drive is to remove the DVD drive and use an adapter caddy. Hard drives in such a device are slower and are not bootable so useful for pure mass storage only.
