Hi!
I had problems with coffee and my macbook pro 2015, I took out the ssd hard drive, bought a PCI x4 adapter, put it together and connect it to my computer PCI x16 slot.
I have windows server, but it doesn't recognize it...
Any help please¿?

Thank you!!! :)

Windows not recognizing it can be due to missing or conflicing drive letter.

The different file system can sometimes throw Windows from assigning the drive a new letter.

Have you tried to see if the SSD is seen by Disk Management and giving it a different drive letter.

Welcome to the forums!

Please list full system specifications.

What is the desktop OS? Windows?

Is the drive detected and properly identified in BIOS? Or just the OS can't see it?

What is the adapter make/ mode?
