made change in BIOS , got it to work in windows 10, did a new format it in windows 10 built in disk managment program.
worked ok for couple of hours then it dosen't show up in my bios or in windows 10 desktop.
We always recommend making sure that you're running the latest BIOS version and Chipset drivers for your motherboard. Additionally, you may try to remove the SSD and install it again, or test it in another system.

I have done all above as you have said, but with no success.
I may have to return it. test another one and hopefully it will work better.
How come there is so many problems with these M2 ssd disks?
Thanks for the feedback.
Most of the issues we see with these drives are simple compatibility issues (M.2 ports that only support SATA and not NVMe*, use older generation NVMe*, and so on).
We're confident that once you receive your replacement, you will not experience further issues.
