SSD settings in BIOS
  1. Restart your computer, and press the F2 key after the first screen.
  2. Press the Enter key to enter Config.
  3. Select Serial ATA and press Enter.
  4. Then you'll see SATA Controller Mode Option.
  5. Save your changes and restart your computer to enter BIOS.

You can try to fix the below issues and hopefully, your drive may get detected:
  1. SSD is not initialized.
  2. SSD drive letter is missing.
  3. SSD file system is not supported by Windows.
  4. SSD disk driver not installed properly.
How can i go
Under disk management did you create new volume for it to be used in Windows or did you assume it'll just show up?
