You can replace the 2.5" HDD with a 2.5" SATA3 SSD such as the 2.5" Samsung 860 Evo or similar. There is no extra M2 SSD slot in the notebook.


On page 60 of service manual you can see the steps to replace the drive:


You will need to install the OS on the the SSD either by using recovery disks or HP cloud recovery

migrating an image. The manufacurerof the SSD will usually provide software (example Samsung migration software from Samsung site) and you will need a USB to SATA adapter such as this

Or you can perform a clean install by using Microsoft media you can download from Micrsoft


Hope it helps,
