So I've already got 2 M.2 drives installed and I just found a SSD I used in my old Lenovo Laptop and hooked it up so I could reformat it but Bios doesn't see it. I've tried everything. Taking out CMOS Battery, resetting BIOS, uninstalling and updating my storage devices, etc. Nothing is working.

This drive does have Windows on it and idk if that might be the problem?

System: i7 6700k, Gigabyte GA-Z170X Gaming 7 (rev 1.0) Board, 32gb Corsair DDR4, Corsair RX750 80 gold plus, 1080ti, and a 256 and 500gb m.2 drive.

and what is this ssd from the old lenovo? 2.5" m.2?
Oh I'm sorry! No, just your standard 2.5 inch Solid State. It's an ADATA SU650 500gb drive. I've got the power cable from the PSU and the sata cable both plugged in. I've tried every power port for sata on my PSU and every sata port on the motherboard. None are recognized.
