M.2 sockets can work with a SATA interface or a PCI-E interface.  Some laptops support only SATA, some laptops support only PCI-E, while other laptops support both.

 

I am not familiar with your laptop, but one explanation for the BIOS not recognising the SSD is that you have plugged an M.2 SATA SSD into a PCI-E socket, or have plugged an M.2 PCI-E SSD into a SATA socket.  You need to check the capabilities of the socket in your laptop, and the interface type of the M.2 SSD that you have purchased.

 

If the SSD is compatible with the socket, another explanation is that your laptop has a "white list" of M.2 SSDs that will work, and the one that you have purchased is not supported.  To determine which M.2 SSDs are supported, look for recommended SSDs in the "Hardware Maintenance Manual" (HMM) for your laptop.  Your can download the HMM from the Support page on this web site.
