SATA only so the Transcend would work but not the HP you list in the question.
See p. 44 of the Service Manual here:

I will make it as simple as possible.
NO NVME-NOT SUPPORTED-CAN'T INSTALL
SATA m.2 only like this:
You don't have to buy that one but it's the kind you need. 2280 form factor SATA-3 M.2 SSD. Got it?

Transcend 830S is a B + M keyed device like the one I linked you above. Either B + M or M key will fit in the slot. The M.2 SSD must be SATA protocol NOT PCIe/NVME.
Most SATA M.2 SSDs are B + M keyed. I have never seen an M only keyed SATA M.2 SSD. Does not mean they do not exist just that I have never seen one.
Most NVME M.2 SSDs are M key only. A few are B + M. The keying is not what matters it is the configuration...for you SATA YES, NVME NO.

I want to buy a 8gb 2400 bus ram..
I want to know if there will be any problem if i use current 4gb 2400 bus ram + 8gb 2400 bus ram..
Will i get more speed than now i get ?
I am currently using Samsung 4gb 2400 bus and i i wa to upgrade it to 12 gb through another 8gb new ram of same bus but different company.. because Samsung 8gb module is not available in my region..
If i buy a 8gb stick with same bus speed ,will i i able to get more speed?or will i face any issue

more memory will improve performance and yes you can mix a 4 and 8 gig DDR4-2400 module but I suggest you simply add another 4 to have 8 total because of "dual channel" which you get if the two modules are the same size and type. 8 gigs in dual channel will perform as well as 12 gigs for most things you do with a computer. You don't need to buy Samsung as the second module as long as the memory is the same type (speed, density, latency).
