hp slimline desktop - 270-p029il M.2 SSD Not Detected

HP Recommended
hp slimline desktop - 270-p029il
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My SSD is  WD GREEN M.2 SATA 128GB. I have plugged it into the M.2 SSD slot but it is not detected anywhere. My BIOS is F.45, and I have tried searching the SSD in the BIOS Settings, Device Manager, Disk Management and File Explorer but to no avail. I have tried to change to IDE but I am not able to locate it in the BIOS as the settings is limited.


Please help. Really appreciate it.

Your PC's Lubin motherboard's M.2 slot only supports NVMe M.2 SSD's not SATA.


Here is a discussion where a forum member had the same issue as you and replaced the SATA SSD with a NVMe SSD, and it worked just fine.
