HP Willow 2 Can't Detect my Samsung 860 EVO Sata M.2

HP Recommended

Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I just bought a Samsung 860 Evo m.2 I tried to plug it in but then as soon as I turned my pc on it just doesn't show ( I looked at the disk management). 


I really need help with this asap cause I'm planning to turn it into a boot drive and I've seen similar problems that I'm experiencing and most of what I read wasn't solved.

@DiESMiLLiNG , welcome to the Community.


The M.2 socket on your motherboard is key M.  This normally can be used with SATA, NVMe or both.  However, I am not certain which option HP has used.  Here is a guide to explain the sockets and keys:


Also, here is a HP Knowledge Base article that will explain the best way to transition for a HDD/SSD to a SSD:


I suggest cloning your current M.2 to the new M.2 using Samsung's Data Migration software.
