    Re: Intel M.2 SSD 660p not detected in ubuntu

    I guess this is the relevant report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1808842

    But I don't understand why is that a problem with Linux system?
    I'm not sure, but the bottom line is that you need to switch to AHCI SATA mode in the BIOS. I see other Nitro 5 users reporting they can switch, ( https://community.acer.com/en/discus...t-in-ahci-mode ), so you should be able to as well. The only thing I can think of is that your BIOS detects the Windows install operating in RST/Optane and won't let you because it would break Windows. Maybe you should ask Acer..


    EDIT: You are using F5 or F6 keys in BIOS to try and change the value, correct?

    A similar problem thread appeared for Acer Nitro. The solution given there might apply to you?

    I recently bought a Samsung laptop that has the same design: the UEFI simply won't let you chance none of the NVME drives to AHCI, the setting isn't there.

    Samsung typically needs UEFI Secure Boot /password on to have more settings.
    But many SSDs need firmware updates to be correctly seen by Linux.

    I'm experiencing the same issue with the Intel M.2 SSD 660P on Ubuntu 18.04 -- Not detected in bios or the system at all.
    Even the Intel SSD firmware updater can't detect it in bios boot environment with linux kernel loaded.

    Interestingly, the Intel 600P M.2 SSD has no issues being detected and that's currently the M.2 SSD that my Ubuntu OS resides.
    The 600P is 128GB

    What kind of system or motherboard do you have? I have a 660P running/booting Linux without issue.

    I have the 1TB variant of the 660P, but it shouldn't matter. If you cannot see the drive in the BIOS, then your situation seems unrelated to the OP's, other than having the same model of SSD.
    My guess is that you (in order of probability):
    1) Need to alter a BIOS setting
    2) Need to update your BIOS
    3) Installed the drive incorrectly
    4) Have a defective drive

    For this type of issue, I think you would have better luck asking on a general hardware support forum or the MSI site.

    Hi guys, update here:
    the drive was faulty, had it tested at the retail outlet..so my case is not valid to this thread. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thanks
