XPS 8930, three NVMe drives?

I put three NVMe drives into my 8930, one on the motherboard, one via a PCIe x4 adapter card, and the third one via a PCIe x1 adapter card. However, only two of the NVMe drives are being detected, the one on the motherboard and in the x1 adapter card. The drive in the x4 adapter card isn't being detected. I'm wondering if there is maybe a BIOS limit to the number of NVMe that can be used with this motherboard. Anyone know or have any details in this?

So you didn't try all drives in the x4 card? After all, NVMe can be bad.
