Loaded Mint from a USB stick and it isn't showing the SSD. Removed the SSD and relocated in its socket, still couldn't find it. Help

Is the bootable disk not recognised or is the SSD not recognised in bios? Please check in bios Advanced > Devices > pCI , M.2 slot should be enabled.

Please check in Advanced > Devices > SATA

Thanks for the swift reply. Alas it’s not recognised by the BIOS. I’ve been advised that the SSD is shot. So i’ll Try another M2 SSD and see how that goes.

This is not the first report of this happening to a WD Blue drive...

Just saying,
