Hi,


Page 2, 33: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05117922.

Samsung SM961 NVMe M.2 (2280) SSD would be the fastest available in the market. Are you sure it is TLC, rather than MLC?

Your notebook supports SSD 2280 M2 PCIe 3x4SS NVMe TLC TL. I'll not take chances buying MLC. Go for TLC type.

Remove HDD from its bay, Install your desired operating system in SSD. Make it boot drive. Then replug HDD. Now SSD will be your boot drive and HDD as storage.

Be aware that SSD upgrade needs somewhat major disassembly. Hence if you are doing it alone and break something in the process, HP wouldn't honor the warranty. Get help from HP or a good technician for the upgrade.
