Greetings, I have MSI GV62 8RE gaming laptop which has m.2 combo slot that support both SATA and NVME so I bought a new NVME SSD to replace the default SATA M.2 SSD.
I have removed the old one and installed the new one but it's not being detected by the bios or even by the windows installer. Do I need to change any settings in bios to enable NVME support, or is there any steps that I need to do to replace the SSD?
 
You might need to search thru various BIOS settings looking for such an option, or, even just 'enabling' either x2 or x4 lanes for NVME... (if you are sure the laptop supports both NVME or SATA)

Such a setting likely in 'advanced' and/or within 'chipset', etc..

There is only few options in bios that is not related to storage, but when I showed hidden bios options there was so many options but didn't know which one do I need exactly.
