hi i have a helios 300 i7 9750h 1660ti, it has a 500gb NVMe pre installed, im looking for an extra 1tb ssd and it has another spare m2 slot and an additional sata 3 slot. does anyone know how can i check if the spare m2 slot can take NVMe before i order ?
hopefully someone can help because i just got £100 Amazon voucher so waiting to order maybe a sabrent rocket.

Move the existing NVMe drive to the other slot.

Good idea, the os is on it though, so if it reads NVMe should it just boot up as normal ? I didnt know if the bios is programmed to only boot from the original m.2 drive ?
On a 2 minute google, the Helios 300, 2019 version has 2 x NVMe slots.

But literally the worst that can happen with swapping them over is it hangs on the BIOS. But unless you have a second drive installed already, this is unlikely.
Even then, just go into it and change the boot settings to swap the boot order.
