    Yeah, finally wanted to see what the hype was about and purchased the 512GB version of this M2 Nvme.

    Just wanted to use it as additional storage for future games. Thought this was going to be an easy add on, nope.

    Installed in MB easy enough, but once booted, I do not show it as a 3rd hard drive.

    Device Manager sees it, says it's working properly, but not initialized.

    Went into Bios, looks like all is well, but still can't see it as a new hard drive.

    Probably not enough to go on, but thought I'd ask.

    thx for any feedback here.

    UPDATE: Fixed, had to go into Disc Manager. carry on!!

    Glad you fixed it. I was going to mention Disk manager but went afk a bit, then saw you updated.

    Ha, well appreciate it anyway!

    Good Lord this thing is blazin fast. Now thinking I should have it as my primary drive, but for now, the games load so much quicker than my previous SSD and the 7200 rpm.
