    Ubuntu 18.04 does not see PCle SSD with SATA mode set to AHCI on Acer Aspire 7

    I have Acer Aspire 7 A715-71G with newest BIOS version installed. I am trying to do Windows 10 Ubuntu 18.04.3 dual boot.


    I have successfully installed Windows on my SSD (ADATA SX8200 Pro 512GB) and created an empty partition for Ubuntu. I have disabled fast boost in Windows, secure boot in Bios and I have SATA mode set to AHCI.
    But when I try to install Ubuntu from USB I do not see the SSD drive...


    I was trying tons of solutions online but nothing helped. Let me know if you need more information.


    I'll be very grateful for any help.
    Thanks,
    xarctus

    Many also need SSD firmware update.

    And if Windows is installed, did you turn off Windows fast start up?

    Was this using RAID 0 with two drives?
    You then have to erase meta-data on drive.

    Thanks, I tried what you suggested but it did not help.

    However, I was able to solve the problem based on this solution: 18.04 and 18.10 fail to boot nvme0: failed to set APST feature (-19)
    At boot in grub I select install ubuntu and I press e then escape and I edit the boot option there so that after quiet splash I have nvme_core.default_ps_max_latency_us=200
    This way I was able to see the SSD disk.
