PCIe SSD device not found


Hi,
I am new to linux. I am working on a new NVME/PCIe SSD device. The device works under windows. I am trying to install it on Linux using an open source NVMe compliance test device driver. After installing the device driver module, I tried to run the test but got back an error that the device was not present. I turned on the *.debug /var/log/messages and only saw a message stating that the module was loaded successfully. Is there something else, some other log, I should look for to help figure out why the device is not showing up?

Thank you

If we assume that the motherboard fully supports bootable pci and the board is fully supported in bios and OS it should work.

You should only need a modern kernel. What kernel do you have? A 3.10?

"Linux

Intel published an NVM Express driver for Linux.[23][24][25] It was merged into the Linux kernel mainline on 19 March 2012, with the release of version 3.3 of the Linux kernel.[26]"
