Second SSD missing from My pC

HP Recommended
Hp Omen 15 EK0012DX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have installed a new SSD in the second empty slot. Sometimes I couldn't see the second drive in 'My PC' but I can see it in the device management. I formatted it to NTFS and it shows 'Healthy (Basic data partition)'. The drivers for the SSD are also up to date. Once I changed the driver's letter it will again show up in 'My PC'. I want to know the reason for this.

Yes. You can use the recovery flash drive created by the HP Recovery Manager to install the OS to the  SSD and use it as your boot drive and then use the original drive as storage.
