I have an alienware alpha R2 originally equipped wiht a 1TB HDD.
I purchased a M.2 SATA SSD to speed it up but it does not show up in the BIOS.
I flashed to the latest bios available to date (2.0.10 from Dec 22 2017).
I tried several BIOS settings (legacy mode/ UEFI) to no avail.
Any tips ?
What's the SSDs brand and model. We recommend the PM 851 or 951 on that PC.
Also, check the functionality of the drive on another PC.

I can't always reply to PM's, if you need extra assistance visit:
The drive in question is : Crucial CT275MX300SSD4
It was supposed to be compatible based on information from them. I have returned it to vendor.
Are there any alternative to the PM851 / pm951 ? These devices are not easy to get nowadays in my patch.
Can I consider a M.2 NVMe like samsung EVO 960 for example ?
Thank you for your feedback,
