Here is the Service Manual:
This laptop has no M.2 or mSATA slot. It has the ability to accept a SATA M.2 SSD but only by using an adapter plate that fits in the same bay where a 2.5 inch SATA SSD would go. This type of arrangement offers no advantages: it is no faster than a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. So if you replace your 2.5 inch SATA hard drive with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD you need no new hardware; the caddy and cable that supports a hard drive will also work with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD.
See pages 39-43 of the Manual for "how to".
Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

so i need no adapter or anything else to replase the 2,5 harddisk? Cuz the the Harddisk is damaged and i need to order fast the SSD. So there is only 1 place for a Disk? I can only put in 1 Harddisk or 1 SSD? is this corecct?
Can i use this one too without problems?

Yes a 2.5 inch SATA SSD is the same outside as a hard drive: same size, location of mounting holes and SATA connections so is a drop in replacement for a 2.5 inch mechanical hard drive. I have never been a fan of the Crucial MX series of SSDs but it should be OK.
Yes in this case on this model there is one storage bay for hard disk/SSD...no way to have dual storage unless you use an optical (DVD) bay adapter which I do not recommend.
