    I'm hoping it's just a bios tweak. I just installed two NVME drives in the vacant slots inside the laptop. One works fine but the one, nearest to the battery doesn't seem to be functioning. Any information on solving this would be appreciated.

    If I recall correctly (and I've never owned the v6), the lower m.2 slot of the two parallel ones is a pci-e gen 3 x 2, whereas the top one and the one off to the side are the gen 3 x 4 slots (and those latter two are connected to the raid controller). Might be an incompatibility between your nvme ssd and the slot, though in theory, I would expect it to work and just be bottlenecked by the smaller bandwidth (but you could try a gen 3 x2 ssd and see if that works in the slot)
