Crusial mx500 m2 500gb not reconized as second drive.

My new system has 2 times a m2 drive. The second drive is the Crusial mx500 500gb 2280, but wont show in Window 10 Pro or Bios.

 

The system:

Motherboard: GigaByte AORUS ULTRA GAMING X470. Bios verion = F2
First m2 disc: Kingston UV500, 240 GB SSD(SUV500M8/240G, M.2 2280)
Powersupply: 
Seasonic S12II-520 , 520 Watt Bronze.
OS: Windows 10 Pro Dutch.

 

anybody any clue why the second drive isnt reconized?

According to motherboard specs it has following M.2 ports:

 

1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4/x2* SSD support) (M2A_SOCKET)
1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 PCIe 2.0 x4/x2 SSD support) (M2B_SOCKET)

 

Both your M.2 SSDs are SATA type however you mobo can support only one SATA M.2 SSD. The second M.2 port can only support PCIe SSD.
