Your PC does not have an extra port (M2) for SSD. So you will need to replace the hard drive with a 2.5" SSD of your preferred brand and capacity.
On page 42 of the service manual, you can see the steps to replace the drive.
Then install the OS on the SSD and let completly update (Settings>Verify for updates)
and HP support assistant for drivers
Once all is up and running you can place the HDD in a caddy in the optical drive bay. You could also just leave it out of the computer if the capacity of the SSD is enough.
Hope it helps,
