After upgrading my machine to a refurbished Z Turbo Drive w/1T Samsung SSD, the Windows 10 Media installation Flash Drive fails to recognize my new SSD. Could it be simply a setting in BIOS, or require update of BIOS ?

the hp z440 was released after ssd'd were commonplace, as such it has supported NVME/SATA bootable SSD's from it's release
the z240, series were released BEFORE intel /computer makers decided to support the nvme standard as such these earlier systems may require a specific bios revision to support booting from a ssd

You have to do some homework first!
How is it possible to tell you whether you need a BIOS-update when you you don't mention your current BIOS-Version?
With a simple No-Name PCIe extension card 15 $ and a 1 TB SAMSUNG 970 EVO+ (100 $) you get appr. 3400 MB/s.

Thank you. I've have learned that my BIOS is not up to date. Though the version I have is supposed to support the Z Turbo Drive, I think I may have inadvertently mis-configured something in the BIOS that prevents it from recognizing any system Drive. I have some digging to do.
