Yes it has an M.2 slot. Here is the Manual:

 

Manual

 

Start on p. 40 to open it and inside you see this:

It can take a SATA or PCIe/NVME M.2 SSD 2280 form factor and of those you should absolutely get a PCie/NVME kind such as the Samsung 970 Evo or Evo Plus.

Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Huffer, only two questions.
1. Manual you've sent includes Product description HP Pavilion Notebook PC, models 17-ab301 through 17-ab499. Does my 17-ab009ur match to these models?
2. Is there no chance I'll face the same problem? - https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/samsung-M2-vnand-970-evo-plus-...

That's the Manual HP has posted on your Home Page and the specs seem to match your laptop. The issue of SATA only in that post you linked was a different model. The Manual says model with 960M video can accept NVME M.2 SSDs. There is never "no chance" of a problem but all appears good to go in your case.

I've succesfully installed INTEL 760p Series SSDPEKKW256G8XT 256Gb, M.2 2280, PCI-E x4, NVMe.
I've cloned 5 partitions from HDD to SSD (EFI partition - 260 Mb, Reseved partition -16 Mb, Data partition - Windows -225 Gb, Unused partition - Windows RE tools - 980 Mb, Data partition - RECOVERY - 11.97 Gb).
But I could't find any option in BIOS to choose my SSD as first boot device.
What should I do next?

Do you get a boot menu with esc and f9 as you power up?

Can you do a screenshot?

 

It might be a good idea to remove the hard drive. Once the system is booting to one source its hard to move it to another and its never a good idea to have two separate bootable drives in the same computer. You can wipe the system files off the hard drive and put it back in so the system can no longer boot from it. 

 

Try tapping esc as you power up and see if you get a menu. F9 should be a bootlist. The BIOS (F10) also has a boot order setting. I gather you are not seeing the SSD in there?

 

This may be of some help:

Telling you to temporarily turn off secure boot.
