New build (AsrockX570Creator, AMDRyzen93900X), no operating sytem installed yet.

What exact BIOS settings should I enter to make this SSD

recognized by this mother board?

I have tried several suggestions, such as this one, but with no success:
http://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1236&KW=m2+ssd+bios&title=how-to-install-windows-on-a-pcie-ssd

During installation attempt of Windows10 via USB stick with WindowsMediaCreationTool, process hangs up because no storage device is found; it requests uploading of driver.

I understand that I must enable the M2 slot in BIOS, but I cannot find any clear (idiot-proof :) ) instructions on how to do this.

Thank you for this forum

the spec says
*If PCIE6 is occupied and the Thunderbolt??support is enabled, PCIe type M.2 SSD on M.2_2 will be disabled.

is this maybe your issue ?

have you tried the drive in both m2 slots ?

failing that id be inclined to direct it to the amd raid driver when it asks for a driver and set the raid type to JBOD this will make it one drive without mirroring or striping etc
