So I install a ssd on my motherboard m.2_1 and it worked fine and fast. So I bought another one and installed it on my m.2_2 but I can’t find it in my bios or in my windows storage I can’t figure out why.

if you are using one m.2 and other sata ports are populated by your HDDs then it wont detect your 2nd m.2 drive since it requires a sata port to be disabled in order for an m.2 slot to work.

Also most motherboards only have capability for NVMe drive in top slot, lower slot is regular Sata m.2, so if the new ssd is NVMe, it'll need to be in the top slot. If both are NVMe then make sure your motherboard will accept NVMe in both slots or it'll not work.
