Turns out the screw to fix the NVMe drive in place is missing. If only I knew where I put those screws two years ago πŸ™ˆ

The good news: I found my box of computer screws. The bad news: There's no ridiculously tiny NVMe screw in it. πŸ™„
Time to order spares. πŸ™

The spares have arrived and two SSDs are now installed 😎 Moving on to reassembly, testing and partitioning / making space on the main SSD.

Turns out Dirt Rally 2 contains a 9GB data file, so there goes the idea of just using a single large FAT32 partition. πŸ™„ (Leaving its 109GB total on the main drive is not really an option)

On the positive side though, so far the new disk works flawlessly :)
