    Asus G501j Laptop PCIE SSD Issue

    I have tried to upgrade my ASUS G501j Laptop today removing the supplied 512GB PCIE Card SSD
    and replacing it with a new 1TB PCIE Card SSD ( same manufacturer Samsung )
    To my dismay it does not show up in the bios and will not boot ( just goes to bios screen )
    If I replace the original smaller SSD card all works well again.
    Strangely the fresh windows install to the larger drive worked ok but after installing I am straight back to the bios screen and no drive detected in the bios ?
    So I can only assume that windows recognises it but the bios wont boot from it ?
    I contacted ASUS support who said the PCIE slot is only compatible with the smaller 512GB drive which I find odd ?
    Has anybody got any further info which might help here ?
    Thanks in advance.
