NUC7CJYH does not accept the sata SSD

I installed 8GB Ram and the 120GB SATA SSD WD GREEN in my new NUC7CJYH.

when starting the bios, I cannot find the SSD. It looks like that there isn't installed any. There is also a checkbox where I can choose SSD.

I'm starting the NUC with a USB device with UBUNTU 18.04.1.

Are there any restrictions for the SSD?

Can anyone help here?

Thank you

Here you can see the list of compatible products for your NUC:http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC... http://compatibleproducts.intel.com/ProductDetails/ExportPeripheralInfo?moduleName=Intel%C2%AE%20NUC...… Although WD Green is not on this list it doesn't means that it is not compatible. It means that wasn't verified and tested by Inet. In order to avoid such questions, it is better to buy products tested by Intel with NUC.

Leon,

Intel Validated lists are rather limited. It might be good supplement them with lists based on user experience. As an experiment, I started such list

thank you for your tipps. Now I found the problem: The internal connection to the top side of the housing with the ssd inside wasn't connected. Now it works also with the wd green.
