can you see bootable drives in the bios? (first, second, etc.)
I suppose it does not
you need to change a few options in the BIOS and everything appears

Boot :
Launch CSM - Enabled
Launch PXE OpROM - Enabled
Security :
Secureboot - Disabled

If you want to install something from USB or DVD in future you must also change one more thing :

USB Legacy support - Enabled

Now when boot press ESC and select drive to boot

I have try with N751 the same problem i cant see the m2 SSD drive 🙂

You may know this already but just to make sure you are trying to plug in a PCIe SSD, right? I ask because I googled m.2 transcend SSD and came up only with SATA versions of this SSD but according to what I found in the upgrade guide the G771 just like the G751 and I think also the N751 take PCIe SSDs which are the same form factor but a totally different connection. If you want to check out such a drive, the best example is the XP941 or its successors SM951 which however is not available yet.

The upgrade guide also says M.2 PCIe x4 SSD 🙂
