Where is the M.2 slot for the HP Pavilion 15-ab292nr laptop?

HP Recommended
Pavilion 15-ab292nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I disassembled the notebook but I could not find where the M.2 slot is.
This slot is mentioned in page 3 of Maintenance and Service Guide.

I need to install a M.2 SSD together with the original 1TB Hard Disk.


In page 3 we can find:

M.2 SATA-3 (NGFF):

SSD, 256GB, 2280, M.2, SATA-3, TLC

 

This slot is also mentioned in pages 25 and 32, but where is it inside?


I hope you can help me.

Best Regards.

I didn`t make my self clear. i am sorry.
I could find the slot M.2 in the Service Guide, but not inside the Notebook.

So I decided to edit my question.

 

Thank you.

This thread indicates it doesn't have an M.2 for memory,

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Where-is-the-M-2-slot-for-the-...

 

Might try finding a video of someone opening one up and going over things. I looked and didn't find one.

There is a problem with that thread. It ended with a Private message, so no body will never know what was the "solution".

I have spent some hours trying to find videos.

What makes me curious is that the Guide sugests M.2 SSD with HDD as storage upgrade.

That`s HP! 🤔

There should have a solution in that Private message.

@CMACMA 

 

The series supports single STORAGE only, HP Pavilion 15-ab292nr machine does NOT have M.2 slot for storage.

No_Beret, thanks for your atention.

 

Banhien, thanks for your answer.

Please, feel your self comfortable to close this thread.

I apologise, but I can't ACCEPT AS SOLUTION since the HP's Guide for this notebook doesn't agree with it.

 

Best Regards.
