Im looking for a m.2 SSD on my HP EliteDest 800 G1. And i wanted to know if my bios can support an m.2 SSD over PCI-e.

Have you tried downloading and reading the PC's manual?

Have you, in fact, tried anything - apart from asking other people to do your research for you?

As the others mentioned, the best bet here is to ask HP. However, I was bored on my lunch break and did some digging. Looks like the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 motherboard doesn't have an M.2 slot (makes sense since it's running the Q87 chipset which launched back in 2013). I doubt that the motherboard or BIOS supports NVMe, and if you're getting an M.2 SATA SSD, you might as well just get a 2.5" one because it doesn't really make sense to buy an M.2 expansion card that may or may not work in addition to the SSD
