Long story short : I have purchased an ultrabook online (Jumper Ezbook 3 pro) and a mini SSD drive to connect to it, but it turned out that the seller confused the models of the laptops and sent me one that doesn't have a mSSD SATA adapter. Returning the laptop at this point is impossible for me, so I am looking for a way out of this situation. 

So the question is : 

I have seen many videos online with this version of laptop (the version that has mSSD adapter *screenshot 2*) that on this very spot (marked red on the pic below *screenshot 1*) there's a mSSD adapter, I don't have it, but I have this little slot attached to the motherboard (pointed with a red arrow *screenshot 1*). Can I use the adapter shown in the other picture below(screenshot 3) to connect the mini SSD drive to laptop through this slot ? 

You'll find some more pictures of the dimensions of the unknown slot on the motherboard. We have a "CM" ruler. 

Here's the link to the adapter that I found online : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/CY-50mm-Mini-PCI-E-52-Pin-mSATA-SSD-to-M-2-NGFF-B-key-Adapter/32774433798.html?spm=a2g0s.13010208.99999999.264.qpOi7Q
