Lenovo V520S-08IKL M2 SSD not recognized.

Hello, i have a lenovo v520s and my m2 ssd is not recognized by bios.

The ssd is a Kingston A400 120GB (SA400M8/120G) and from what i read, is compatible with the desktop. I also tried to update the bios, but still not recognized. 

If you could help me, i would be grateful.

Re: Lenovo V520S-08IKL M2 SSD not recognized.

I have the v520 and I'm facing the same problem, I bought the "Sabrent 256GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-256)" from amazon after weeks of searching and comparing with the PC specs. and it is not discovarable by bios at all, I went nuts ! 

 

when installing a windows, the windows see's it, but bios won't boot in to it

 

when I attached it as a storage, the windows sees it, but I bought it to have the windows on it not to use it as a storage, I also updated to the last bios just to reach to no where

I've had it working using https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28865/Intel-Virtual-RAID-on-CPU-Intel-VROC-and-Intel-Rapid... 

 

still not what I've expected, as it won't start without my HDD connected 

 

during installing the windows, I've installed this driver and after copying the files it restarted with the M.2 continuing the installtion, but if I disconnect the HDD m.2 will not start
