  1. M.2 Drive Not Found By Bios


    I bought a Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 drive and when I install it into my system the bios does not find it. Windows 10 PRO finds it and I am able to format and use it. I think it is a motherboard bios issue because my old Samsung 950 PRO NVMe M.2 drive is found by the bios and I am able to boot from it. I don't expect Asus to provide a bios update for my old Maximus Hero VI.

    Time to go shopping for a new motherboard? *Biggrin*Biggrin

    M.2 SSD not being able to boot from it, windows doesn't recognise.


    Ok, this is what happened after all the comments and suggestions, @Dude: Thanx for the video, my mb had non e of those settings, it had the raid/option memory gene or achi. Can only choose one or the other. @Saltgrass, my settings did point out auto and enabled the pcie x4, gen 3. I did an bios flash as suggested, because my bios was not the latest version, after a reformat the m.2 was picked up, still cant install OS onto it as it states legacy not found, removed my dvd rom from the sata port to another, and the drive was found and installed. Only issue now is that it's still not my OS drive but it at least now works and is installed, but on the Intel rst drive the obtain memory gene option to enable is greyed out, and shows as disabled. However the program lists the M.2 and it is working 100%,. I installed overwhatch onto it, it performs perfectly. But will update the intel driver tonight and see if that makes any difference. Seems the bios flash enabled the settings listed by @Dude that was not present pre-flash.

    So the m.2 drive works. I can game off it and install omnto it. Can not install windows on it, gene memmory is enabled, pcie x4 is on and on auto detect, Motherbaord lists all the drives connected, motherboard ahs been updated to latest bios. After flash new settings became available, m.2 is now on memmory gene enabled not achi, windows os is enabled and fast boost is enabled, intel rst is installed and lists all the ssds and the m.2, however the m.2 on memmory gene is dissabled and the option to enable is greyed out. Will update the driver as Essenbe suggested of the m.2 and see if anything changes. Thank you all for the help, I can now atleast use my m.2

    M.2 Drive Not Found By Bios

    M.2 SSD doesn't show up in BIOS, Windows Installer and Disk Management

    This depends on where in the bios you are looking. I have a Gigabyte X470 board and in the drive list I only see my CDROM, but in my boot order I can select either of my two M.2 drives. Keep in mind that some M.2 will show up as they are SATA drives but most are NVMe drives. If you are still unable to select your M.2 drive as a boot option then you need to look into updating the BIOS of the board as some M.2 drives are not recognized in the early firmware for the X470 boards.

    It is also worth noting that on most of the X470 boards the second M.2 slot is shared with the adjacent PCIe slot and if something is in the PCIe slot the M.2 port is inactive. As well some BIOS wont see an M.2 drive in the second slot if noting is in the first slot. Some BIOS updates have fixed this problem.
