M.2 location

I’m wondering where exactly the m.2 slot for this model is located older models seem to have a designated slot next to the battery where an M.2 ssd can be installed with a mounting screw however I don’t see this on my model but the specs say it’s compatible does anyone have a picture or directions of where I can find the slot after tear down.

Welcome to HP Community!


I have gone through your Post and would like to help


As per the Service Guide, Notebook supports  up to 512 GB,


Refer to page 9 under  Storage Maintenance and Service Guide HP 15 Laptop PC link 


Opening the notebook and upgrading it will not violate the warranty unless you damage something.   

You need to be able to return the notebook to its original hardware configuration in the case of any required warranty repair.



Hope that answers your question and you have a great day!
