Title:

Upgrade eMMC storage in this laptop?

Text:

Hello,
 
My girlfriend's mom purchased this ~$200 laptop awhile ago and it has a 32 GB eMMC hard drive in it. I can't seem to find any information online about this laptop, but I was wondering if anyone knew:
 
a) if this laptop has a sata drive slot, I know that it doesn't have a DVD drive so I can't just stick a sata SSD in that way.
 
b) If I can change the boot order in the BIOS to boot from the sata SSD. I understand that this is a pretty basic BIOS feature but you never know with these cheapie laptops
 
I was able to find a lot of information about the HP 14-an013nr however I can find very minimal information about the HP 14-an012nr.
 
Thanks for the help!
Thanks for the help!

This might be stupid as well, but is it possible to have a spanned volume with the eMMC boot drive as well as a USB Flash Drive or an SD card?
