I have looked everywhere for 2 days now. I have read so many forums and tutorials and I cannot find a solution. I am trying to reformat my SSD during installation but Disk Utility does not see it. The only thing showing up in Disk Utility is the USB drive. I have AHCI enabled, VT-D disabled, and windows is able to boot from it so it is not a problem with the SSD. My computer is an ASUS K501UW-AB78 if that is of any use. I don't know where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

If it is a SATA, pay attention to SATA-100-series-unsupported.kext.
If it is NVMe, pay attention to the NVMe info in the FAQ.
