not crucial
That is a SATA drive.

The motherboard has 2x M.2 ports, but only ONE (M2P) will accept a SATA drive.
https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/Z390-M-GAMING-rev-10/sp#sp

  • 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 PCIe x4/x2 SSD support) (M2Q)
  • 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support) (M2P)

That WD drive will never work in the other M.2 port.
