So, basically my laptop got a 1TB HDD, I'm planing to get a M.2, Can i have my OS and all the important stuff in the M.2 and keep using my old hard drive? If so how?

 

(and buying new M.2 what should i look out for?)

Does your laptop have an m.2 slot? Does it support NVMe, SATA or both?

i know it has a m.2 slot but not sure if support both NVMe and SATA, how to check?

Answer: Yes It does support both SATA III m.2 and NVMe SSD m.2 (Even though the post features a Slightly different model with the same layout of the ssd Slot and all, exactly the same bios) (The Notch on the right a.k.a ‘M-key’ side makes sense).

 

But I can't find if it has 2 M.2 slots.


... but I'm no expert

The way you wrote your title question "Can I put a new m.2 and have my old one working as well?" suggests you already have an m.2 and want a 2nd, so some people are going to read that and not see the detail in the first post.
