Drive not recognized by System Rescue CD (SYSRECCD)

A new Dell Inspiron 3670 computer has 2 drives factory installed. One is a conventional hard drive (HD) the other is a solid state drive (SSD). Now that I can boot the SYSRECCD (refer to this topic for more about that), when I open GParted the SSD is nowhere to be found. The, missing, SSD is connected via PCIe M.2 interface rather than SATA. My suspicion is that this requires a driver that could be missing. However, Dell advertises this computer as being factory supplied with installation option that allows either Ubuntu or Windows 10 to be installed. I haven't tried installing Ubuntu and can't say what might happen then but I would be surprised and seriously disappointed at the idea that I was sold a computer with a drive that an advertised OS cannot use.

How can I get SYSRECCD to function on this drive?

For anybody else who cares the solution to my problem is explained here. For a complete lesson on related matters a pretty thorough tutorial can be found here.

Note: The referenced material is specific to Dell computers but it is conceivable that other brands might suffer from similar issues.
