Nothing of the above works.
If you want an Asus hyper m2 card with 4 nvme disks you need to be certain that the pci slot you put the card must be x16 and that the motherboard supports bifurcation 4x4x4x4.
I say the above because i put the example above with 4 x adata 8200 and my GIGABYTE x570 was seeing only the 2 disks. I tried hard to make it work but it didn't no matter what i did.
It worked eventually but only when i removed anything from the 2nd pci slot because my motherboard specs was saying that if anything is puted in 2nd pci slot then 1st and 2nd Slots work x8 so Asus card wasn't working.
For me that was ok and i moved my gfx card to 3nd pci slot which controlled by my chipset but that pc is a homelab so it wasn't crucial for me but for anyone who has a good gfx card and his pc is a gaming machine for example this is a problem.
So to finish you need to be certain that the slot you put the card is x16 or it doesn't work.
