Mobo manual says M.2 shares SATA mode with SATA6G_1 port.

 

Also there is an option in BIOS > 'M.2 / SATA6G_1 Configuration' that can be set to [Auto] or [Manual]

M.2 and SATA6G_1 SATA Mode Configuration [SATA6G_1]
M.2 shares SATA mode with SATA6G_1 port. Change this item before installing M.2 SATA devices.
[M.2]             SATA mode will be switched to M.2.    SATA6G_1 can only support PCIE devices
[SATA6G_1] SATA mode will be switched to SATA6G_1.    M.2 can only support PCIE devices.

 

Reading this manual I would try following:

1. Turn off PC

2. Remove M.2 SSD and unplug anything that is connected to SATA6G_1 port.

3. Boot to BIOS

... This is optional but you can consider resetting BIOS options to defaults

4. Set M.2 and SATA6G_1 SATA Mode Configuration [SATA6G_1]  to [Manual] and set it to [M.2]

5. Save the settings

6. Turn off PC

7. Install M.2 SSD

8. Turn on PC
