PCIe NVMe SSD and maximal capacity for 15-bc412nc

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-bc412nc

Hello,

 

I have question regarding adding SSD drive to my HP Pavilion 15-bc412-nc. In the Maintenance and service guide I've read that my model supports only M.2 SATA storage. I would probably like to keep my 1TB HDD and add SSD. In the guide it also says, that dual storage configuration is set as:

 

1 TB, 5400 rpm, 9.5 mm/7.2 mm hard drive + 128 GB SATA, TLC, M.2 solid-state drive

 

But that probably just means that this is the configuration this model is being sold with, right? Meaning there's no actual limitation to SSD capacity.

Another thing is that David in this post says, that you can have an SSD with NVMe interface for (almost) the same model, which conflicts the Maintenance and service guide.

 

So I would like to know these two things:

1) Is it possible to have an SSD drive bigger then the aforementioned 128 GB for that particular laptop model?

2) Do I need to buy a drive with the older M.2 SATA interface (as said in the guide) or is it really possible to use the newer PCIe NVMe (as David says in the post mentioned earlier) in this laptop?

 

I know these questions were probably answered before but I really want to be sure (especially when those answers conflict the information found in the guide).

 

Hoping to hear from you soon,

Petr

You should be able to add M.2 NVMe or SATA SSD drive to your machine. It is safer to use SATA.

 

The size is huge but due to physical limitation (single sided 2280) you can use 2TB or even 4TB drives on market today.

       

Regards.
