There is one problem with SSD, Once You have put one in and used it. You will want to do a SSD boot drive in every computer You own.
Good Luck with the new drive. I suggest testing it once it arrives. Most likely that will be easy to do since You have a HP
I believe this is Your computer model.
Opening the Computer Setup Utility
Use one of the following methods to open the Computer Setup Utility.
Turn on the computer and immediately press the F10 key repeatedly, about once every second, until the Computer Setup Utility opens.
Turn on the computer and immediately press the Escape key repeatedly, about once every second, until the Startup menu opens. Then press F10 .
To navigate the menus, choose menu screens by pressing the left or right arrow keys. Use the up or down arrow keys to move through the list of items on the menu screen. Press the Enter key to select an item and open a submenu. Then use the left and right arrow keys to modify the settings. Press the F10 key to save the changes and exit from a submenu, or press the Esc key to exit from a submenu without saving the changes.
Then go here and test the drive.
DPS Self-test - Select this to perform a diagnostic test on the hard drive.
I suggest this as it is possible for a new hard drive to arrive damaged due to rough handling during the shipping process.
I suggest strongly that You make no changes in the BIOS setup and only use to test the drive.
