Google the brand name including the model type adding the word chipset.
Basically if the board supports SATA then you can install a SSD drive. It will not be able to function optimally, but it should work because of backwards compatibility.
You could also add a sata controller, but it might not be possible to actually boot from a disk connected to an extra sata controller. Some controllers have their own bios, some don’t.
