HDD isnt detected in windows with M.2

HP 840 G1
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Everybody!


I have a HP 840 G1 and originally there was a 2,5" 180GB SSD in it. I already upgraded to a 240GB SSD 2,5" but still having not enough capacity.


Since a week i have upgraded my laptop with a m.2 SSD 2242 240GB. Next to the M.2 i wanted a 2,5" HDD with 1TB for enough story capacity. I have installed the m.2 SSD and it all works. Only if i wanna see the 1TB windows doesn't see it. In disk management it isnt seen but in the bios it is.

Device management and Diskpart


What did i tried? I have move the SSD to the last place of the boot device but it didn't work. After that i have update my bios to the latest version of it en install the new drivers from the HP website. It al didnt work.


Have you any ideas how it can work? It would be ideally for me.


With best Regards,
