I am currently attempting to repair/upgrade a HP Pavillion X2 split tablet/laptop. The short and long HDD tests failed, so I am attempting to replace the drive, and upgrade it if possible. I have yet to find an actual HDD/SSD inside of the keyboard chassis. There is a space that could almost fit a standard laptop HDD, but nowhere for it to slot into. I disassembled the tablet chassis and located a 2.5" c400 64GB SSD. Is this the drive where the OS would be located? Or am I missing something in the keyboard portion? The model number of the laptop/tablet is
13-p120nr.

yeah the 2.5 drive will be where the OS is held

If its removable then you could get a larger capacity SSD but check what kind of connector it has.

If its sata then you should be fine

Thank you for the quick response. I think I am mistaken. This is a mini sata SSD, about the size of a laptop RAM chip. It is not a 2.5" drive found in most PC's. It is a 64GB mini sata SSD. I apologize for the mix up.

Keep in mind msata is expensive and with the asking price of some of them better off getting another laptop.

Yes, that is definitely the type of drive I removed from the tablet. If that is the only component that needs to be replaced, and installing Windows is the only time I have to invest, then it will be feasible. Anything more and it will have to be chalked up as a loss. Thank you for your time and expertise.

Here is the support page at HP:

And here is the service manual:

Page 51 is the instructions for removing the MSata SSD along with the HP part numbers for the drives they use.  You would do best to shop for one of those part numbers:
