    Yes, it is OK to add a 250GB SATA m.2 SATA card. It will look like the top card shown below. It will fit in the m.2 slot on the mainboard near the HDMI port Jack E/NJ

    Your model was tested with up to 256GB SATA m.2. It may accept higher but not guaranteed. Jack E/NJ

    I have installed 250 GB SSD m.2 drive successfully. But, old HDD is not showing up in This Pc tab and device manager tab. But I can see it is detected in bios but not showing up in the this pc tab and device manager tab. The old HDD is fine. It's working. When ever i try to load windows from it, it is starting. But in this case, the new SSD is not showing up . The same thing  is happening when I start with SSD as well. Not only this pc tab but also in disk management and Device manager as well. What's wrong about it ? And how to solve this problem ? Please help!

    If you boot from the m.2 SSD as the letter C drive, then press WIN+R. Enter 'diskmgmt.msc'.  Then assign letter D to the old HDD. Jack E/NJ

    What M2 SSD did you bought?

    Check your mainboard's m.2 socket before you plunk extra money down on a 970 nvme. Some models are equipped with 2 socket keys.  If it also has a B key the 970 won't fit since it only has one card slot to fit the M key.  https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/726635/#Comment_726635   Jack E/NJ

    @JackE,

    Ok. BTW, I've seen a 860 nvme installed in someones same model, but i'm not sure if there's anyone already tried the 970 nvme. https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/676664/#Comment_676664
