I don't see any slot or card that can be changed.

HOWEVER you might want to try VirtuMVP (see google.)

as long as you know what you are doing and you find replacement parts that work than it should be fine. the only way the OS will get damaged is if you damage it, otherwise it should be fine as long as you make sure to shut you're computer down.
