Hello, i currently bought a M.2 SSD specifically (Silicon-Power PCIe Gen 3 x4 M.2 2280 SSD 512gb) after putting it and installing it through the disk management, windows won't read my other SSD which is only 120gb, (i have 2 ssd's 120gb each, it's a Crucial m4 120GB SSD 2.5-Inch (9.5mm) SATA 6Gb/s Solid State Drive CT256M4SSD2 ) the bios only shows the boot drive and the currently installed m.2 SSD, any help with this?

PC Specs:
Intel i5-4460
Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5
Gigabyte RX570 4gb
Cougar SL 600 PSU

most M.2 slots will share bandwidth with one SATA port. I'll bet your m.2 has disabled that port. move the failed SSD to another SATA port on the motherboard

in the manual page 11
The SATA3 4/5 connectors will become unavailable when an M.2 SSD is installed
