    Does the manual say anything about that M.2 socket sharing bandwidth with any PCIE slots? If yes, do you have that PCIE slot occupied by a card? That could possibly turn off the M.2 socket.

    Re

    Do you have Nvme or sata.

    It doesnt matter if you have nvme. In setting storage in bios you can set the prime to pci-e and 2nd also to pci-e.

    Both drives need is x4 x 2 times bandwidth. your board is capable of x8 x8 x4

    First slot is the one below, on ROG logo (you need to take out a screw to access. That slot can be configured in BIOS. That slot can work either on SATA mode, or PCIe mode, make sure that in BIOS you set the M.2_1 connector in PCIe mode. that should work.
