Can you tell me exactly what type of connector has M.2 or mSATA?
If it goes M.2 what type (ex. 2242-D2 TYPE-B-M)?
Restrictions pertaining to the maximum space <512GB or <1TB?

It supports M.2 2242 SSD, but HP Probook 430 G2 is a series of many models/products, not all of them have this slot.

I have a Probook 430 G2 and have bought an AData SSD today, plugged it in in the port but unfortunately, it is not seen by BIOS or OS. The port is there, 2242 M2 because the SSD ca be plugged in with ease.
Any ideas why it does not work?
Also, from the BIOS, I can only see mSATA. Some of the users report they have PCIe/M2 and it works. I have the i3 4030u CPU and a 250GB Samsung 840 EVO SSD.
The port seems to be a B-key edge connector.

By the end i do not find the complete response to these questions.
But try to update the bios to the last version available today.
It will be nice if you will keep us informed.

I had figured this out last night. It seems the ADATA SSD was fauly. I tried it in a desktop M.2 port and got the same issue, slow booting and in the end it was not recognized by BIOS or OS.
I tried to put in the Samsung 850 EVO M.2 in the laptop (it is 2280 but fixed it just to see if it boots) and it worked perfectly. So my conclusion was the SSD is faulty. RMA'd it today and hope for a quick response. The problem is that there are not many 2242 SSDs to choose from as most of the vendors go to 2280.
Anyway, 430 G2 has the SATA M.2 port and it should be working. After I get the new one I will come back with conclusions.
