I recently purchased a HP Pavilion Gaming 15-dk0616nd laptop. The shop where i bought it mentioned in the specifications that this laptop does not support the placing of een extra SSD.
This evening I opened the back to add an extra 8gb of RAM. On one side there is the M.2 NVMe SSD. On the other side is a 2.5 SSD dummy drive.
Can I replace this dummy with a 2.5 SSD drive. Or does the shop display the correct information en doesnst support the motherboard 2 SSDs?
My PC knowledge is limited, therefor this question.
Thanks in advance!

Here is the Manual
See p. 37. You CAN add a 2.5 inch SATA SSD but your dummy placeholder may not have the necessary connection cable in which case you would need a 2.5 inch SATA SSD plus the correct caddy plus the correct cable.

Thanks. Couldnt find that manual. When clicking on the link from the productpage if gave me a 404.
It seems that there is already a cable connected to the dummy drive. PIc: https://ibb.co/sbK7xkz
So I think I will buy one and try it.
