Which type of M.2 slot do I have? Sata or NVME?


Its an older HP Elitebook G1. I at least know its 2242 size. But there seems to be differing opinions on what G1s got sata or NVMe.


Also If its not NVME, Is it worth using if I've already got it booting from SSD in the 2.5 sata bay?


The plan was to switch to booting off the M.2 and use the 2.5 ssd as storage, but if its not faster, is there much of a point?


thanks in advance!

That's M key, so it should be NVMe though x4 or x2 I dont know.
