Latitude E5570 SATA SSD upgrade to NVME

Hello!

Tried to upgrade my E5570 (current drive is 128GB M2 SATA)  with new 512GB Intel 600p NVME SSD, but ran into problem. BIOS cannot find this drive.

Updated to latest BIOS - no luck. Disabled SATA completely - no luck. 

Windows 10 installation disk also cannot find new drive (tried many drivers)

Please help

What mode is the drive set for (RAID, AHCI, etc.)?

I tried both AHCI and RAID, even tried to disable SATA at all. It doesn't show up even in System Information in BIOS.

There's a big issue here that I missed - if the system setup (UEFI) doesn't see the drive, Windows never will.  You may want to check wtih Intel support to see what they say -- the drive could be defective.

Bought M2-PCIEx4 adapter. With this adapter Intel 600p works on my desktop perfectly. I can see device in BIOS and in Windows (WIn7 + NVMe patch from Microsoft).

Seems there is a problem in laptop. Any suggestions?

There's more than one M.2 socket on this model - which one did you use?  Only the one next to the  hard drive supports an SSD - the other two will not.

Of course I know that. My laptop shipped with 128GB M2 SSD module. I just replaces with new one, NVMe capable. There is only one slot witch accepts 2280 module

What model is the existing 128G drive?  If it is SATA as you mentioned above, then the M.2 port in this model is SATA --at least it is on the mainboard you have.  SATA or PCIe/NVMe is either/or -- not both.
