Hello, I managed to do it easily with a 1TB SSD from Crucial (MX500 serie) . However, I used MACRIUM Reflect to clone the system. (Crucial app didn't work)

I am using the SII with the N4100, 4Gb of ram, and 64 Gb of eMMC storage.  I made the mistake of trying to use an M.2 drive that uses NVMe and found out that it is not supported "at this time".  So I am sending that back and have ordered a SATA 2.5" drive.  It should be a lot easier to install than the M.2 was.  The Crucial SSD says it comes with Acronis to clone the drive.  I'm hoping that I can get the BIOS to recognize it as the boot drive.  I'll find out tomorrow.  Stay tuned.

Update:
I was able to get Acronis to clone my SSD and that only took about 10-15 minutes after reading their online guides.  But it didn't show up in my File Manager until I assigned a drive letter to it using "Disk Management" .  Since the internal 64Gb drive was already C:, I assigned it letter D: and it appeared in the File Manager. But it still didn't boot to the SSD until I went into the BIOS and switched the boot order. It booted on the SSD as drive C: and now the internal drive is D:.
