I am trying to increase my hard drive storage space. I tried to change the Optane 512 drive to a 1TB SDD. I could not get it to accept the non Optane Drive. I looked for a way to purchase the the 1TB Optane, but noone has these.Then I noticed a space that looks like it could accept a 2nd drive and a connector.
Can this notebook accept a 2nd drive? What is the part number for the cable. I tried the one in the owners manual and it is too small.

The specs of your machine is
It has 512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD (No Optane) No Optane can be that big (capacity). What is your 1TB SSD ? HP does not supply Service Guide for the series now. Please wait few more weeks.
Most likely you can add 2.5" HDD/SSD to your machine but you need 2 parts
- Hard drive rubber holder part # L52662-001
- Hard drive connector/cable part # L52656-001
Again, it is much better to wait for few more weeks because parts are very hard to find.
