Recently I bought a Lenovo V310-15ISK with 1 TB HDD storage and I bought an M.2 Intel SSD 600p 256GB because I read on this page about "Dual Storage Option" feature. The problem is with the SSD, it doesn't show up in BIOS as HARD 2 or HARD 1 (I can see just the HDD), but when I try to install Windows 10 I can see the SSD but I cannot create a new partition on it every time when I try to create a new parition the installer hangs for about 3 minutes and show an error message (We couldn't create a new partition [Error 0xa4cc6be0].), I can't even create a new parition in Disk Management.
What I did:

I apologise in advance for ressurecting an old thread.
I have the same hardware (v310 and intel 600p series nvme ssd) and there is a solution for op's original problem - flashing latest bios update allows booting up from nvme ssd... what bothers me is that a new problem arises afterwards in the form of inability to boot from nvme ssd after a "cold start" ie there's need for restarting laptop so that ssd becomes recognized (on a restart ssd becomes visible in bios) and also there's a problem with resuming from sleep (laptop freezes up and has to be manualy restarted). My laymans guess is that there's an issue with power states/management of pcie (m.2) slot/device but there are no options for such management in bios (there are no setting whatsoever regarding nvme ssd or am I missing something).
So I'm asking here before making a new thread if op or anyone in similar setting have these issues?

I have Lenovo V310 15ISK 8GB Ram and Amd gpu i7 6500U, I have exactly the same problem in cold boot up as well as suspend. I tried almost every possible situations and configurations for months no results. I think your guess is correct.

Yes. I tested it before and after too. You can use the ssd with 2 "cut" (M2 sata). I bought the phison chipped ssd and it works well. My intel 600p sent back after that. I can't do anything, but i tried EVERYTHING. If you can, refund this item and buy one with PHISON CHIP. (Bellow my post you can see one, what 100% works)
