3rd M.2 SSD slot on the t450

hi

 

i bought 3rd M.2 SSD slot connector for the t450

When i don't correct ssd correctly i get an error durint boot.

When it's installed correctly, i don't see it in windows, same thing in the disk manager of windows.

I tried with an transcend 128GB ssd and MyDigitalSSD 256GB Super Boot 2 both was not seen under windows.

If I connect theses drives on the wan port, they work.

Is there any special thing to do to get this ssd working with the third ssd slot?

Is the 3rd SSD visible in the BIOS Setup?
I'd inspect the cable between the systemboard and the SSD' adapter.

Is the BIOS version the recent? Despite the BIOS update history doesn't mention anything regarding m.2 SSD, old BIOS might be a cause.

I don't see any other causes except of the BIOS version and cable. Probably the pins of the connectors are broken or oxidized.
