How to run PCIEX16_2 / PCIEX16_1 in x8 mode (Z690 Hero Mainboard)

Hello,

I have a hypercard installed in 2nd PCIE slot with 2x Samsung 980 Pro ssds inside it.
The thing is, only one is beeing recognized out of 2 and I noticed my GPU sitting in the first PCIEX slot is running at x16 mode.

Going into the BIOS, the only thing I can find is changing the Gen of each PCIEX slots but not the lanes (x16, x8).
My Mainboard is the z690 Hero. How do I fix this?

Sincerely.*

I could be wrong, but I do not think you can use PCIEX16(G5) _1 or PCIEX16(G5) -2 and use both SSDs, but both SSDs might work in PCIEX16(G4). Hero User's manual page 1-7 and 1-8.
