T470 unable to detect M.2 2242 second HD

Just received a new T470 and installed a 256GB M.2 2242 HD. However, the computer is not recognizing the HD.  I saw another thread mentioning that Bios version 1.30 gave some issues, but checking my system, I have 1.28. Do I need to upgrade to 1.29? Or is there something else I need to do?




Edit: Checking the Device Manager, I actually see it listed under the Disk Drives, but it's not showing up under Devices and Drives and isn't usable.


Edit 2: Anddd... I had to format it first before I could use it. It works!
