M.2 NVME to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter + SK hynix Gold P31 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion H8-1080t
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Dear Community,

 

I just bought  a M.2 NVME to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter + SK hynix Gold P31 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD  and installed them to Desktop HP Pavilion H8-1080t (through PCIe slot).  I want to use it for an additional storage drive.

 

I tried to locate and format the new drive using disk management, but it shows that NO drive found for the PCI device. I updated motherboard BIOS (2012) - sp56367.exe, and I still can not locate the new drive in BIOS. 

 

I really appreciate any advices for the fix!

 

Charlie

@Charlie1181 , welcome to the Community.

 

I believe this is a compatibility problem with the adapter, M.2, SSD and the motherboard.  The motherboard is 10 years old and you are attempting to add the latest, greatest, components to it.  I suggest that you contact the manufacturer of the adapter and M.2's Tech Support to see what they have to say.  They are the experts on their products.
