Hello,

Weeks ago, I planned to upgrade my laptop HDD HP 15-bw068ax to a M.2 NVMe SSD because the price with M.2 SATA is not that expensive (around $10 - $20) in my country (Indonesia).
After a quick research, I found a YouTube video showing HP 15-bw does have a M.2 slot, sadly after I buy the WD Blue SN500 M.2 NVMe 500GB and opened my laptop it's actually don't have an M.2 slot and in HP Support page does seems say it too (https://support.hp.com/sg-en/document/c05533970 ), but the other HP 15-bw is actually have (https://support.hp.com/sg-en/document/c05545265 ) yes it is my fault I only do a quick research for it, because it's stressed me out because my laptop is too slow.

What I want to ask is, will this WD Blue NVMe work if I buy a M.2 SATA converter and dock it under current SATA HDD? if not I will just sell the NVMe SSD and buy a normal SATA SSD.
If it's work:
  1. Which one should I buy, the M key or B key? (WD Blue SN500 M.2 have M key and B key.
  2. Can I boot up using this SSD (after using an adapter SATA converter)?
Thank you very much.
