Can I add PCIe / m.2 slot to motherboard if I have terminals

Envy x360 15t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an Envy X360 15t-W000 HP laptop.  According to the manual the laptop has the capacity for a M.2 SSD as well as the standard HDD. When I ordered the laptop I oriignal oredered the HDD version.  I wanted to add an SSD to improve performance and would rather add m.2 SSD for better speed. 


I opened the laptop to check and found the space for the m.2 SSD and what I believe are the terminal points on the mother board but the slot or header to plug the SSD into was not there.  Can the slot be installed or added?

Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I checked the specifications of your computer and see that there is an M.2 SATA 3 slot on the computer. However, when checking the image you have shared the slot is not available.


I recommend you contact support and they will assist you in this regard.


Here is how you can get in touch with tech support.

1)Click on this link –

2)Select the product type.

3)Enter the serial number of your device or select let HP detect your product option.

4)Select the country from the drop-down.

5)You should see the HP phone support number or Chat option listed.


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
