M2 ports on bf103ne

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 14 bf103ne
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

I was looking to upgrade the storage on my laptop. Are there any M2 ports available on my laptop HP Pavilion 14 (Model: bf103ne)?
Do they support NVME?
I was looking at buying the WD Blue NVME SSD(SN550) if it supports NVME otherwise I'd buy the WD Blue SATA SSD M.2 2280.

 

Could you please share if it supports these options.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual.

 

HP Pavilion 14 Laptop PC Maintenance and Service GuideIMPORTANT! This document is intended for HP au...

 

Chapter 1 has the supported drive types.

 

If your notebook has a M.2 slot, it only supports SATA M.2 drives only, not NVMe.

 

I say 'if' because when you look in chapter 3 of the manual, three additional parts are used to add a M.2 slot to the PC.

 

(20) Solid-state drive adapter bracket  L00160-001
(21) Solid-state drive board                     L00159-001
The solid-state drive board cable is available using spare part number  L01440-001.

Since your notebook did not come with a M.2 SATA SSD from the factory, it is possible that those parts are not present.

 

So, before you run out and buy a WD Blue SATA M.2 SSD, you should open up the notebook and confirm that the M.2 slot is there.
