Totally lost as to why it's not showing up as a new drive. The M.2 SSD is an Adata XPG SX8200 Pro, and my mobo is an Asrock B450M Pro4-F.

Like I say it is showing up in Speccy and HWInfo when I've ran them so I know it is seated correctly, but it is not showing up either in Windows in 'This PC' or in BIOS as a selectable boot drive. Any ideas what I haven't done?

Have you tried both slots? Which slot are you using?

Ok I've managed to resolve this myself. Basically what I had to do was right click 'This PC' > Click 'Manage' > Click 'Storage' > Click 'Disk Management' and then Initialize + assign a drive letter to the M.2 drive, and also format it. It is now showing up in 'This PC'.
