I believe it depends on whether or not you have the model with discrete graphics or not.  With discrete graphics you will likely be limited to the msata drives.  I've installed a 2.5 drive in my E7450 but I have a unit without the discrete graphics.  Simply remove the bracket that holds the msata drive and drop in a 2.5 drive.

I have Intel Graphics card. I hope that I can replace this hard drive. I saw this bracket on some movies on youtube. I saw two version of motherboards, ant this was strange for me.
I thought that it was a mistake.

Yes, it's a frame that holds the msata drive.  Disconnect the entire frame, including the msata drive and you can then replace it with a standard 2.5" SSD.  The frame is screwed in but there is no problem leaving the new drive without screws.  Very simple to do but obviously you need to do either a fresh install or clone your existing drive with an external USB enclosure prior to replacing.  Works either way.
