However, my motherboard does not seem to be able to recognize the drive as the it neither shows up in UEFI nor in the Windows 10 Installer.
I tried installing it in the two M.2 sockets that the motherboard has:
- M.2_1 socket supports PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA mode M KEY design and type 2242 / 2260 /2280 PCIe and SATA storage devices.
- M.2_2 socket supports PCIe 3.0 x4 M KEY design and type 2242 / 2260 /2280 PCIe and SATA storage devices.
However, the drive is not recognize in either socket.
I also tried applying several configurations to the Compatibility Support Module and it still does not detect it.
UEFI setup photos:
I had to take my pc to a technician and, from what I remember he did, put another ssd m.2 on the motherboard, he tried activating / deactivating options (the truth did not seem that he knew what each option does and it was something that I had also tried) and in some of those attempts, eureka! the disk was recognized and appeared in the UEFI configuration panel.
I wanted to know which of the options he activated was indicated for it to work. I restored the options to the factory state and the ironic thing was that ... the disc was still recognized by the mother card! It could have been that I did not fit the disc right into its socket, but I honestly made several attempts and even applied a lot of force that I feared damaging it.
An unsolved mystery. But the important thing is that it works.
