My Omen Obelisk OMEN 30L Desktop GT13-0255st (1A226AV_1) has two M.2 2280 slots (labeled SSD1 and SSD2) and two HDD SATA connectors (labeled HDD 1 and HDD2). I currently have three hard drives - one SSD NVMe and two HDD SATA.
I want to add a 4th drive - a second SSD NVMe connected to the M.2 2280 slot (SSD 2). When I add a second SSD NVME the computer won't boot and would start an endless loop of Windows repair. Is there is something I need to enable to have 2 SSD NVMes? I see other less expensive desktops successfully (https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Add-2nd-SSD-to-Omen-Obelisk-875...) added the second one, but I have no luck so far. Please advise

It was RAID causing all the problems. Changed it twice. First time changed it and the system went to restore mode. I thought it stayed as Non-RAID as I changed it. But no, the system changed it itself to RAID again. Had to change it back to Non-RAID after the system restore and only after that I managed to add the second NVMe. Is there any way to change the RAID to non-RAID so that in case of the HP bios restore it stays as NON-RAID and doesn't go back to RAID as it was shipped? Thanks
