No, this drive will be recognized, after you plug it in, as

Hmm... actually, there's a risk that the new drive gets assigned the
name `sda` and the "old" one gets renamed to `sdb`.



This has happened to me. I suspect because the system recognises the
conventional drive before the m.2, but not positive.

I had to set the m.2 as the boot in cmos.  And remove the conventional
drive when I want to install a new OS.
