Like the title says. Does anyone know if my laptop can use m.2 because i want to install an additional ssd in it? CPU-Z lists my mainboard as an HP 825D (Intel HM175) but i dont know what any of that means, i cant even find mention of "825d" on 2 pages of google. I know it has SATA 3.0 for the hdd, but not sure what else... Thanks in advance!

thanks! this site is helpful for choosing parts! it seems i can indeed use M.2, since it is suggesting a M.2 drive along with NAND drives. But sir, do you know if this means my laptop chipset has M.2 slot? Or will I need something like extender/adaptor? i ask this because i also watched a disassembly video for my laptop's sister model (to prepare) and saw that the HDD is connected to the board with a white ribbon cable (here on the upper right of the screen

). Sorry if this is not connected to my original question, but i didnt think its worth creating a new thread for it. thank you again!
