I currently have a SSHD in my laptop and would like to have an SSD for the OS. Can i use both of them simultaneously? Do i need to perform some changes in the BIOS for this ?

There is a slot of a SATA drive and you could use either SSD or a standard hard drive. You may need a gasket and possibly a foil insulator, check the maintenance and service guide here https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/hp-pavilion-14-cd0000-x360-convertible-pc/20283983/model/223995...

Yes , the SATA slot already has the SSHD  but i want to install additional memory of 120-250 GB  of SSD in the m.2 nvme slot.

Will they both work together or not ?

 

I'm planning to buy the below one

I have now installed the NVME SSD and I am running both the NVME SSD and SSHD together. I cloned my windows to the new SSD using Macrium Reflect and referred to below knowledge article 

https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Cloning+a+disk 

 

Also, post cloning you will need to boot from the new NVME SSD and then once it is working fine format the partition of SSHD containing Windows for any other use.
