Just have the SSD drive your OS will be loaded onto and leave out the other drive for now.
Check cabling and connections and try switching SATA ports to test.
There is a function key that will allow you a choice of boot device, I think it is F8 so press that key during Post cycle.

Check you have installed the M.2 SSD correctly if that's the boot device.
If no go then update your Bios and try again.

yes, this is a new build. with completely new M2 drives and ssd just installed. There is nothing on those drives and they are not even formatted i think because that's how i believe they are shipped
pressing f8 to select the boot device gives error "the system cannot find any bootable devices"

I was just trying to install linux with a bootable usb but nothing is listed in the boot priority and pressing F8 throws error
"the system cannot find any bootable devices"
