Hello guys, I bought this motherboard 2 days ago because I had a prebuilt system that I wanted to move into a new case. It was Acer Nitro 50-610 I think. I bought a new PSU too because the original one doesn't have the right connectors. I moved everything and one thing is messing with me. BIOS wouldn't recognize my M.2 SSD. Everything else works. I'm trying to fix this for 2 days straight and I'm thinking about buying a new M.2 and installing windows on it. The BIG problem is that my windows are on the M.2 that BIOS won't recognize. And I can't boot. Please help. Thank you :)


PC SPECS:
Intel Core i5 10400F
GTX 1660 Super 6GB
8GB DDR4 (Unknown manufacturer)
Z490-G
WD Blue 1TB
256GB Kingston M.2 SSD

Check sata controller settings in BIOS.
Make sure it is set to AHCI (not Intel RST with optane).

Note - if you're transplanting OS drive from a different computer (you changed motherboard, right?),
then most likely you'll have to reinstall windows.
In sata controller I can only enable it or disable it nothing else.
AHCI is already selected.
