Moved to its own topic.

You need to provide more information than that.

What are you trying to achieve, what have you done so far, did you google first and what did you try?

At least we will need more info on your hardware. Check inxi (post back the result here):

Code: Select all

inxi -Dxx

Code: Select all

sudo lshw -class disk
if you have lshw installed

First be sure that you are in a live session. Your drive must not be in use.

If Gparted still does not recognize the nvme drive, you could try fdisk: ... -centos-7/

This site suggests to change the BIOS settings: ... ll/18463/3

There also is the nvme-cli package. Check out

Code: Select all

man nvme-format
for details.

It seems there is no easy answer.
