Hello @roydonp,

 

Yes, you can upgrade your M.2 SSD to a larger capacity M.2 or NVMe PCIe SSD. Samsung EVOs are pretty good although there have been a few reports on the forum of incompatibility.

 

One SSD that was recommended by an HP Expert, Mr. Huffer, was the Samsung PM961 which is essentially a Samsung EVO 950. You also have some options from Crucial here.

 

Replacement procedures begin on page 32 of the Maintenance and Service Guide here

 

Regards,

Eddy

I have a costco sourced HP 14-dq1033cl with the I5. I have upgraded the memory to 12G with no problem, but when I upgraded the SSD with a 2TB Sabrent Rocket the touchpad and wifi stopped working. I am guessing this has to do with PCI lanes, but would appreciate confirmation and any insights or workarounds anyone might have. When i put the original 125G ssd back in everything works.

 

Thanks

Gary

I have the same laptop but have not replaced the hard drive. Are you sticking with S Mode Windows? You might have better luck if you switch out of S Mode on the original drive, and clone it to the new drive.

 

There is another thread with info on getting the needed drivers installed on an M2 PCIe drive if using factory reset to put S Mode on the new drive.

Hi. Yeah, first thing I did was take it out of S mode …. Also, the new SSD was working fine and I started installing a fresh copy of windows on it, but the absence of a touchpad and internet connection made that a bit challenging as well as purposeless. Something in the presence of the 2TB drive was interfering with other hardware on the computer.

 

Any thoughts?

Gary

Rather than a fresh install, can you get Windows the way you want it on the original drive? Just in case, download all the drivers from the product page to have handy if you need them. You can get there via the HP Support Assistant but might open in your browser behind the HP Support Assistant window. Install Macrium Reflect (free edition) and use it to make a clone to the new drive via a USB enclosure. Then hook up the new drive and see if everything works. If not, reinstall missing drivers from your downloads.

 

Might have to adjust partitions and such once you get everything working.
