SSD Compatibility. NVME not detected in BIOS

samraatejahaan

Right off the assembly line
BLOT:- Which m.2 SSD will be compatible?

I have Asus-Vivobook-R542Uq-DM275T
i-7 8th gen
Upgraded 2x8 GB Ram (Original 1x8GB-2400 MHz)
One installed SSD WD Green SATA
One HDD in Caddy
My question is
I have a m.2 port and to my understanding, it has M key (Image attached).
The port on my motherboard says SSD J5401 (Image attached)

But when I plug in a m.2 SSD (NVMe, PCLe Gen 3x4 (Image attached), it is not detected in bios and definietly not in windows.

I dont know what to do. I am also confused on which SSD will be compatible with my laptop board.

Can you guys please help me here?

M.2 is just a form factor.

The port could be an M.2 SATA port.
