I purchased a Toshiba Portege Z30-B laptop off eBay with no SSD and upon arrival noticed it had an m-key M.2 port, so I purchased a 512GB NVMe SSD to install in it. The SSD physically fits into the port and even the LED indicator on the SSD works when connected. However, the SSD is not recognized by the computer. When I ran my Windows 10 installer, it is not detecting it in the drive list. It is not recognized in the BIOS. I tried different boot modes (CSM, UEFI, and Legacy), and that did not change anything. Is there some sort of setting I have to configure or do some sort of BIOS update to make this thing work? Any ideas? Could it just be a DOA drive?
