Try resetting the BIOS to default settings. Check to see that the M.2 socket is enabled. In some cases, the M.2 socket is shared with a PCIe slot. You will have to choose between one or the other. If none of this works, see if there is a BIOS update. You may need to reset the BIOS to default settings again after the update.

FAQ: KSD-032015-PRE-03

Your M.2 socket must be at least PCIe Gen 2 x4 compatible in order to run this card at the maximum speed. The drive will work in a M.2 PCIe x1 or x2 socket, but at a slower speed. Also, make sure that in the BIOS, the M.2 slot is linked to the PCIe bus as a x4 socket.

FAQ: KSD-032015-PRE-04

FAQ: KSD-032015-PRE-05
