X35G: Install Ubuntu on M.2 2280 SATA SSD

Hi,

I have the X35G (with Intel Core i3-1005G1 CPU) from Amazon and I want to install Ubuntu.

I installed a M.2 2280 SATA SSD (Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250 GB) in the additional M.2 SATA slot, but the Ubuntu installer says:

Turn of RST
You need to turn off RST before installing Ubuntu
The help page (help.ubuntu.com/rst) says:

- Turning RST off completely in BIOS
- Changing the storage controller protocol from RST to Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI)
But I cannot find both options in the BIOS!

What can I do?

Thanks,
Chris

Optane memory does not support Ubuntu. If you are sure to install Ubuntu, please remove Optane memory.

Thanks @joey, but the Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD has no Optane memory.

It works when installed in the NVMe slot, so I could install Ubuntu on it.

Oh, the original amsung 970 EVO Plus SSD is Nvme SSD. Thank you for your reminder.
