Dear Community,

I recently bought a XPG SX8200 M.2 PCI-e gen3x4 SSD.

Yet when I plug it in, it doesn't show up in the BIOS at all.
It only gives me: SATA6G_1234/U.2_2 options, and I don't see a M.2 option.

When I go into Windows/Linux it doesn't show up at all...

Is there any way to enable it?

Yeah thats the thing, there is no M.2 mode. Only U.2 mode...
Ah, okay, so is it a Maximus VIII Hero Alpha then? (Good lord I hate ASUS naming conventions) That's the one with that setting and a U.2_2 port. It also has M.2 that shares bandwidth with PCIEX4_3, although it has a separate setting for the two. Although checking forum threads it seems like it's missing on newer BIOS.
