Bought a new HP Omen 30L-1139 it has expansion slots for upto 3 m.2 SSDs. I swapped out the 2 SSDs from my old computer to the new one and everything worked as it should. I had this working for over a week, then when I upgraded to windows 11 and a new bios update, well, windows 11 doesn’t see the 2nd M.2 SSD plugged into the pcie slot.
I can go into the bios and see the ssd in the pcie slot, no way to activate it or anything like that if needed. When I go into wing, not detected at all, not under disk management, or partition either.
stumped on this one. Tried to reach out to HP; howe

Well, after a few weeks of experimenting myself, the only way I got it to work was to remove the SSD and reinstall windows 11. When that was done and all upgrades completed I reinstalled the SSD, now it finally recognizes it. Took me allot of trial and error to get it to finally work. I even tried the disk HP sent me. It didn't work either. I had to use the window setup from Windows itself, well all that did was format one of my SSD with all my stuff on it.
Suffice to say, remove the spare ssd from your computer, upgrade it or reinstall Windows, when that's done reinstall the SSD, it should recognize it then.

completely agree, windows 11 apparently isn’t even in Beta testing yet, but still released.
when I was testing, I actually bought a powered m.2 NVMe adapter for pcie slot. It was just super weird trying every single combination then this eventually worked. HP was even going as far as using it as a test bench for them to see. Never heard the end result either. They still don’t know I solved the issue myself. I would chat with them and then at the end of the chat they’d close the ticket, even though no solution was found. Even receiving e-mails from the supervisor. I’d reply with photos of the bios seeing the ssd but not in windows. They never replied to my replied E-mails. so they didn’t help me, so I’m not updating them, lol

@Loadie So are you saying that the nvme M.2 is an issue with windows 11, and you advice not doing so just yet. I just bought the Asus z690 creator board with 4 m.2 slots and wanted to run raid 10 1tb each hard drive. Loaded windows 10 no problem and then was gonna raid 10 but decided to load windows 11 and it errors, won't load? frustrating. I really don't want to pull the drives out to load the windows 11 to find out later the updates are not working properly as well?
Any tips on setting up raid 10? Never setup raid before and have no idea what to do to make it happen?

@LoadieThank you for your reply. So I spent right much to build my own and was very disappointed to find out that windows 11 is an issue with the nvme ssd m.2. Frustrated after buying 4, 1 tb nvme to work in my new Asus proactive z690 creator mb. I just purchased 2 different dvd's of the windows 11 pro only to find this out? I will be in contact with Asus 2nd lvl tech engineers and will either speak with or get email reply about this within 48 hrs,
hopefully? If anything becomes of this I will post the results. Again thanks for your prompt reply.

Thank you very much for your response to my email. I will look into it. In the meanwhile, I have a 8 TB SATA Seagate external USB drive that works just fine on this system for my backup however the internal 4TB m.2 NVMe is the one that seems to have some issues even using a USB enclosure. Would they behave differently between m.2 vs SATA/USB? Thanks again for your response.
