Anyone successfully upgraded the m.2 drive? I tried to toss in a 500 nvme but Windows 10 installation wouldn’t see the new drive (doesn’t show up in BIOS boot sequence either)

Did you load the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (IRST) Driver during the install?

I upgraded to a WD SN550 500GB M2 drive. It recognized in BIOS but not in Windows setup when booting from USB. As mentioned above, just download the drivers and load them during the WINstallation and you should be able to proceed from there.

And if not obvious, defo recommend upgrading the RAM while you're in there.
