It has 1TB hybrid hard drive (1TB 5400RPM + 8GB NAND) with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection now. The series supports 2TB+2TB, 750GB+750GB. I don't think the second slot was disabled. Please try to re-seat the seoncd drive properly and make sure the SATA port is connected with a cable.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I've done all this. The new SSD drive was connected properly in the second slot but for some reason, it's not recognized by my laptop and there no place in the BIOS to make any adjustments (if needed).
I also tried connecting the original drive (the 1TB one) in slot 2 and when I do that it's not recognized either, so i'm wondering if the second slot is somehow disabled. Is there a way I can enable it? As I said, there's no place in the BIOS I can do that (or check whether it's disabled).
