Just purchased new HP Omen 15. Box says Product No. 8WK01AV. What is the maximum RAM it can hold? Also, it has 2 SSD slots. I have one 1TB SSD. If I buy a second 1TB SSD, how would the two SSDs be accessed? Would they be seen as different drives? Could it be configured as one large drive RAID 0 stripped?
Thanks for your reply. As far as the memory, the manual is confusing. I will quote what it says below:
Two customer-accessible memory module slots supporting up to 32 GB of RAM DDR4-3200 dual-channel support Supports the following configurations ● 16 GB (8 × 2) ● 12 GB (8 + 4) ● 8 GB (8 × 1) or (4 × 2)
So, on the first line, it says it supports up to 32 GB of RAM. But, in the list of configurations, it only list configurations of 8, 12 and 16 GB. So, that doesn't jive.
As far as RAID, you are correct, the manual you linked to didn't say anything... So, where do I actually find the information? I looked into the BIOS config on the laptop and I didn't see any settings related to the SSDs at all.
Since apparently it is a complete mystery what the laptop actually supports, I went ahead and took a chance and purchased additional memory and another 1TB SSD.
I bought two 16 GB DDR4-3200 RAM sticks and they work, I have 32 GB of RAM. So that is one more configuration that can work. I have two 8 GB sticks that I don't know what to do with, but, whatever. I wish I could have bought the machine with 32 GB from the factory but it probably would have cost me more than buying the memory separately.
As far as the second 1 TB SSD, it recognized it as simply a second drive that I could format. I couldn't find any option in the BIOS or in Windows create partition tool to set it up as a single 2 TB stripped drive. So I formatted the second 1TB SSD as D:. Then I moved the pagefile.sys and my TEMP folder to D:. It kept swapfile.sys (the smaller one) on C:, but I guess that is fine. So, at least some disk I/O will go to the second drive.
