I am not familiar on how to configure or enable M2 accessibility for Ubuntu and could use some assistance on just being able to access the interface.  
I have a Western Digital NvMe SSD installed, but there is no indicater that it is even working.

Is it even possible to use as a storage drive?

Yes I know default is SATA. HOW DO I ENABLE NvME functionality for Ubuntu?

Is NvME functionality only available in an Android environment?

I'm asking how to enable M2 as PCIE 2.0 as is stated in the link you provided. I'm not able to figure it out

Just to verify that the memory device was working itself, I formatted it as EXT3 on windows using AOMEI partition assistant (free version) and then attached it to a M.2 NVME USB 3.1 Adapter (amazon) and plugged it into the ROC-rk3588s-pc board. It worked just fine. So the 256GB card is working just not the connection to 3588 board.   I'm going to try with a SATA version later today.  That way we can at least confirm that the default mode under Linux is SATA.

FYI - My test with a M.2 SATA drive was successful under Debian. Confirming that SATA is the default under Debian as well as the aforementioned Android OS

Hello, were you able to solve this? i did checked my dtsi config file. it seems that pcie interface selected, but m2 nvme ssd not working properly. it's only showned as 4mb ssd in gparted app, but i can' format it or mount it to filesystem. i also tried to format it to ext3 under another linux machine. and also i tried to change dtsi to sata ( ssd disapears from gparted in this case). can someone provide example of correct dtsi file configured to work with nvme m2? thank you a lot in advance!
