So...I just cracked open and attempted to add to my PH517-61 a Samsung 970 2TB EVO NVMe M2. Neither the BIOS nor Windows sees the HDD. Samsung's own magic software cannot locate the drive. Diskmanager does not see the drive.
New SSD (970) is in SLOT 1, and the drive that came with the machine is still in SLOT 2. (It then boots and thats how i'm writing this.) Neither the BIOS nor Windows sees the new drive.
If I swap them and put the new drive in SLOT 2 and the stock drive in SLOT 1 then the BIOS sees the drive in SLOT 2, but says that there is no bootable drives present.
In short I'm a bit baffled as to why the 2nd NVMe slot isnt working. (the one labeled SLOT 1)
SAMSUNG 970 EVO NVMe M.2 Model MZ-V7E2T0
PH571-61 XXXXXXX BIOS version 1.06
Windows10 64-bit all patches and updates current as of 19-Nov-2018
Suggestions? I'm plum out of ideas.
