I bought a new laptop.
I would like to raise HDD (For OS) capacity.
how do I have to replace the SSD (2.5 inch) or M2.SSD?
Please help me.

It is not a normal SSD nor a normal M.2 SSD, it is an eMMC drive. On many laptops, this drive is soldered to the motherborad. On your machine, you can upgrade to 64GB only using part number: 903803-001.
Page 34 of the Maintenance and Service Guide on the following link will show you how to replace the drive.
Note: The manual says this work must be done by Authorized Service Provider parts. This implies void warranty if you do it yourself.

I went to the HP parts sales online and they had the 64gb replacement priced at $401.00!
Wow, can this price be right?
If so any idea where to buy a less expensive HD replacement?

this guy has a cool series of videos about the HP14-an013nr 14 inch notebook. He gives a full review of the computer and also tells you how to upgrade the hard drive. It turns out the motherboard has an unused disk drive port that you can adapt to connect to a hard drive. This is what I plan to do eventually.
in the meantime, there's always SD card, external Hard Drive or a flash drive.
