Hi, I have a 1TB Hard drive in my HP ENVY 15t-j100 Quad Edition CTO Notebook PC and I would like to upgrade to a M.2 SSD. I looked at the service manual here:
Can this really only support 24GB mSATA SSD? Do I have any better options? I checked and I have a hp 1963 (ue31) motherboard. I couldn't find documentation on the motherboard to see if it was compatiable. Can someone help me?

An M.2 SSD is not compatible with your notebook.
There is no M.2 slot on the systemboard to plug it into.

No. Unless that is the only drive in the system. The mSATA mSSD is designed only to be used as an acceleration cache in conjunction with a regular hard drive. If a regular 2.5 inch hard drive is installed you cannot boot from the mSSD. You are better off to use a 2.5 inch SATA SSD in place of the hard drive. The performance speed of a 2.5 inch SATA SSD is the same as a SATA mSSD. And likely cheaper per gig.
Post back with any more questions as this is a constant source of questions and I have done quite a bit of hands on with these sytems.
