HP Notebook - 14-an010na SSD Upgrade

HP Recommended
Notebook - 14-an010na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello all,
Firstly, I'm looking forward to browsing this community - it looks like a great resource!
I have a question about upgrading to an SSD drive on my Notebook 14-an010na.
I currently have a 1TB SATA drive and have been considering either a 1TB or 2TB SSD.
I have the technical skills to carry out the task myself, but the service and maintenance manual is a little vague on upgrade options.
I'm presuming the options listed in the manual are HP configurations for this model and it lists the SSD option of 500gb.
Can I install a third party SSD without running into any configuration issues?
I will be upgrading to 16gb of RAM (2x8gb) at the same time.
I would be very grateful for any advice.


Every day's a school day.

Your machine does not M.2 slot for storage therefore you have to use 2.5" SATA SSD. You can replace existing 1TB of HDD with 1TB or 2TB of 2.5" SATA SSD using

                https://www.crucial.com/products/ssd/crucial-mx500-ssd

                https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/consumer/860evo/

      Or similar from reputable vendors.
                One example (compatible drive, can use smaller/larger capacity)

For RAM, it has 2x4GB now, you can upgrade to 2x8GB (max) using

              https://www.crucial.com/memory/ddr3/ct2kit102464bf160b/ct13452643

 

All good computers stock Crucial and Samsung products.

 

>>>> Can I install a third party SSD without running into any configuration issues?

Yes, you can use popular third party products.
