Some of possible reasons for storage drive not being detected:
M.2 drive installed and it has disabled some sata ports;​
M.2 drive installed in M.2 slot, that doesn't support this particular type of M.2 drives (SATA vs NVME);​
storage drive defective or improperly installed/connected;​
modular PSU has been used with wrong modular cables. This can result in death of connected sata storage devices;​
inappropriate bios settings are being used;​
storage controller drivers need to be loaded before windows install.​
