Aurora R8, storage question

Hello, I have a lingering question about whether or not my hard drive (Seagate Barracuda 2TB Internal 2.5'') will be compatible with my R8 build.

My laptop (Acer Predator Helios 300) has the hard drive in it and I would like to transfer it to the R8 in order to save money.

However, this could be a problem as I did not select the dual drive option when purchasing my build, so I will only have the 256 GBSSD for booting which is not ideal for storage.

Will my R8 come with the 2.5 inch hard drive bay even though it will only be shipped with the SSD?

I am afraid that there will not be a way to transfer my hard drive from my laptop to the PC.

P.S. Will I need a SATA cable to connect this particular hard drive...I am not too sure on how the process works.

Thank you for any advice that can be provided.

Yes, it will come with 2x 2.5" hard drive bays, plus spare power cables, but no spare sata data cables.
