Yes you can. Here is the Manual:

 

Manual

 

It can accept a 2.5 inch hard drive and an M.2 disk either the SATA kind or the much faster PCIe/NVME variety. 

 

The M.2 slot is just to the left of the hard drive when the hard drive is placed in the lower left as you are looking at it.

 

This is the HP recommended 512 gig NVME M.2 disk:

 

512 GB 2280 M2 PCIe 3x4SS NVMe TLC PA, for use with non-touch screen products 847110-004

 

This will work:

Many thanks for the prompt reply.  Will order the 512GB SSD. 

 

I read an earlier post about transferring an image of a smaller sized SSD onto a larger sized SSD.  Will go back to find this posting

is this earlier posting of moving from smaller SSD to the new larger SSD feasible for my Pavilion 17t-000?

 

"What I had hoped to do was perhaps get a USB3  enclosure for the proposed new 500GB  SSD and clone the 128GB SSD to that  and then put the 500GB  SSD in the laptop,

 

Is this possible perhaps using the free software that Samsung provides?"

 

Again, many thanks.

Actually you have to do it in the other direction. A USB to SATA M.2 adapter is available but there is no USB to PCIe/NVME M.2 adapter so put the new 500 gig NVME in the laptop and the old 128 gig SATA M.2 in the adapter and boot from the cloning tool disk. 

 

You can also just make a Windows system image backup and restore that to the larger drive. That is the way I have been doing it and works very reliably using a Media Creation Tool Windows 10 install disk to launch the process. 

 

Many ways to skin the cat.

Unfortunately my Pavilion 17t is a touch screen product.  Any way to disable the touch screen function so the 512 GB SSD will upgrade into my 17t???

I think it means if it is a touchscreen the slot is not there.

@bmartini Did the SSD work for you?  I have a HP Pavilion 17 (V2Z45AV) with 128gb SSD. Want to upgrade it to a 500 GB drive. 

 

Thanks in advance.
