Hi:

 

Your notebook as shown in your screenshot, is missing the hardware to install a SATA M.2 SSD.

 

it will be a lot easier and cheaper for you to replace the 2.5" mechanical hard drive with a 2.5" SSD.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

HP 15 Laptop PC (AMD)* Model numbers: 15-bw0xxHP 15g Laptop PC* Model numbers: 15g-bx0xxHP 15q Lapto...

 

Chapter 1 has the supported drive types.

 

If your notebook has a M.2 slot, the slot supports SATA SSD's only, not NVMe.

 

I recommend you open up the notebook and confirm that there is a M.2 slot for a SATA SSD present, because I believe in that model series, if the notebook did not come with a M.2 SATA SSD from the factory, the slot is not present.

 

If you look at chapter 3, page 19, additional parts are used to add a M.2 slot to the motherboard.

 

(20) Solid-state drive board     924992-001
(21) Solid-state drive bracket  924981-001

Hi:

 

A 2.5" SATA SSD will fit in the same caddy or place the hard drive came in.

 

Unless your PC has a removable DVD drive, where you can fit a caddy, you won't be able to use the 2.5" hard drive.

You're very welcome.

 

Check chapter 1 of the service manual for the thickness of the DVD caddy you would need to install.

 

I can't make sense of it.  It says the drive is 9.0mm fixed.

 

Fixed, serial ATA, 9.0-mm tray load
