Solved!

Can I install an ssd into my HP ENVY and if so, where would I buy what I need ?

HP ENVY m7-n101dx Notebook \ M1W07UA#ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Good morning,

I would like to purchase an ssd with the goals of ....

Leaving the existing hard drive in place to be used as secondary disk storage. (My existing hard drive is a SATA 1TB 5400RPM hard drive.)

Transferring everything currently on the existing hard drive to the new ssd.

And then booting from the new ssd.

 

I don't know how I'm going to "do" the above yet, but I thought I would first start out by trying to learn .......

Will my existing ENVY notebook even allow me to add an ssd to it ?

How do I know what to buy and where to buy it ?

 

Does it makes sense to contact HP and ask them the above questions and then buy the ssd from them ?

 

I'm motivated to make this happen but so confused as to how to get started.

 

Help \ direction would be greatly appreciated.

@RayInWisconsin 

 

It does not have port/slot for you to add internal storage.  Its specs

 

   https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c04763240

 

It has full 16GB of RAM and 1TB 5400RPM hard drive. One thing you can upgrade is to replace existing HDD with 2.5" SATA 3 SSD (1TB or 2TB) using Crucial MX/BX series, Samsung 850/860 EVO series or from other vendors. 

 

One compatible example
