I tried to install Linux, but it seems that I am using an SSD in m.2 and Linux does not recognize the SSD.Is there any solution?
The model is XPS 13 Platinum.

Hard drive not detected

When booting Ubuntu 14.04/15.04 media on a system with only PCIe-based m2 drives, the installer may not be able to detect the hard drive (typically, the installer only searches /dev/sdx by default).


NOTE: The user must access the system BIOS (F2 at boot) and change the SATA setting to AHCI.The drive is still not detected after this change.Users should follow these steps:

  • Add the following kernel arguments at startup:

  • When the
  • keyboard prompt appears, press F12.

  • Press
  • Enter to select the language; press
  • Press
  • Esc.
  • Change the boot option to add "nvme_load=yes" and remove "quiet splash---".
  • Press
  • Enter
  • Displays the NVME drives available in the installer.

At startup, add the following kernel arguments:

Press F12 when prompted.
