Installing second m.2 NVME SSD for HP Omen 17 Laptop

HP Recommended
HP Omen 17-cb1008na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I currently have a HP Omen 17 cb1008na laptop with a stock storage configuration including a 512gb NVME SSD drive and 1tb HDD and am looking to upgrade and install a second NVME drive into the spare unpopulated second m.2 slot on the motherboard. I am unable to determine from the upgrade and service manuals if it is possible to run with the configuration of 3 storage options of 2 NVME SSD cards and a HDD. I would be looking at installing a 1tb Western digital SN750 2280 as the new m.2 NVME drive.

Any Advice on wether this configuration is possible would be appreciated

Can you post a link or a picture of  your board. The service guide I found does not show a secondary NVME slot, but in the overwhelming number of slightly different model numbers I may have pulled the wrong one.

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.

Thank you for your reply.

 

Here are where I found the manuals available for my model available on the HP support website:

https://support.hp.com/gb-en/product/omen-17-cb1000-laptop-pc-series/32827283/model/34899404

I can only find information about dual storage options being available in the service and maintenance manual 

 

Her are the actual images of the drive slots available:

Currently slot B is populated with the 512gb boot SSD and a blank is installed in the secondary SSD slot
