Two SSD on Ideapad 520?

Hello,

 

I recently purchased an Ideapad 520S-14IKB (SN:******). As I figured out it has an M2 slot, I installed a 512Gb SSD (Micron 1100).

However, the system does not recognize it. I tried to turn off fast boot as it was suggested online but I still do not see the drive.

 

On this site, in a different thread, I saw that the port might be electronically inactive.

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-IdeaPad-100-305-500-Edge/IdeaPad-520S-141IKB-M-2-Slot-2nd-SSD/td...

 

How can I figure out if the port is active or not? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Peter

As spidey101 points out in the thread you referenced - if the m.2 slot is present and active it is PCIe.  Your SSD is SATA.

 

It is not compatible with the m.2 PCIe slot.
