Anyone know how I can make my M.2 Sata work/show in Windows?

I'm on the OS using my HDD, what driver would I use to make it appear so I can format it and reinstall my OS onto it?

As of now, it refuses to show up in Disk Manager.

Well it's the M.2 that comes in the laptop itself. I think it's a Toshiba THNSN5512GPU7

Anyhow, I used to be able to just load a driver, and poof it'd appear during Installation.. but it's not doing it anymore.. it's corrupt or something.

So I'm trying to access it from the OS, but it still doesn't seem to appear..

whoa. a drive that came with the laptop gone poof.
pls pls pls try to access it with a different computer. you have one right? if not, beg favors from a friend to use his laptop or motherboard's m.2 and plug it in there and see.

if he's suspicious about your drive, say that your drive contains the most wicked vile stuff ever known to man and in the space odyssey, that a mere plug into his motherboard would cause his pc to implode and create a mini blackhole.

and you're asking for his help anyway!

During installation try using the intel IRST drivers.
This isnt a driver for the SSD, its for the controller.

Winraid has perhaps the best resource, better than intel!

Yeah I looked at that but I can't figure out which one to pick. Can you toss me a direct link?

Yap that's the big screw over.. I don't have any other way to access the NVMe..

I need to find an NVMe type M adapter to plug into SATA or something, then I'd plug it directly in, format it through Windows Install then plug it back into the PCIe slot.

If anyone's able to help me out real-time, I have a Discord here.. https://discord.gg/MPq347V

Is there a way to pick up the NVMe SSD and format it with LINUX..?

G752 won't even launch Ultimate Boot CD.. ;f

Can NVMe SSD's be mounted through USB / SATA? :f

They're PCIe but, can it still work?
