@Techyansh -- it is a little surprising that it is not the "default" configuration to have the M.2 device become the "C:" drive-letter. Does your computer also have a "spinning" disk-drive? 

 

What is the "size" of your "C:" drive-letter? The "size" of the other drive-letter (not the CD/DVD) ?

 

I helped one friend. Her brand-new computer has an M.2 SSD, but it was not tightly inserted into its socket (maybe worked loose during shipping?) and her initial power-on reported "no bootable device", because the "spinning" disk-drive was completely empty. Tightening the M.2 in its slot fixed the problem. Could that "looseness" be your problem?

Just install Windows 10, as if you were installing it to a "spinning" disk-drive. The Windows Installer will recognize the M.2 as a bootable device.

 

Yes, a 5400 RPM disk-drive is slower than a 7200 RPM disk-drive, due to larger "rotational delay" values.
