Hey I can imagine this gets asked so many time but I genuinely have done been searching online all of yesterday to try to fix this and I?m coming to the conclusion that it?s not compatible. It will not show up in BIOS or in windows installation when no other SSD are connected. It also doesn?t appear in my current windows install even with slot 0, 1 and A0 of sata not connected.

Motherboard: Z170 K6 gaming
SSD: WD_BLACK SN750 SE 1TB NVMe SSD

I have updated bios and tried to turn off CMS. Tonight I will be testing it in a friends PC as he has the same SSD but different motherboard.

I hope there?s just something easy that I have missed or a reason to why it doesn?t work as I?m a bit stuck so any help is appreciated!

how many M.2 slots does your board have?? If it has 3 like mine I can only use the top slot with a 11th series CPU.. so I need to use 2nd and 3rd M.2 Slots..

EDIT: I just checked the title it is an M.2. I would try it in another PC it could be defective, if it is still under warranty contact the manufacturer..

well I checked the mobo and it stated this:

"- 1 x Ultra M.2 Socket, supports M Key type 2230/2242/2260/2280/22110 M.2 SATA3 6.0 Gb/s module and M.2 PCI Express module up to Gen3 x4 (32 Gb/s)**"

is your M,2 one of those key types? If it is check and see if there is a BIOS update for M.2 compatibility?
