Hi,

I've had a GA Z97-D3H motherboard since around 2014-2015.
I just bought a Sabrent Rocket 4 NVMe M2 PCIE SSD.
I plugged it into my motherboard, but my PC doesn't even start up. I don't even think it's getting power.
I know SATA 4/5 and Express are disabled, I don't have anything in there.
I have tried unplugging my HDDs and CD/DVD drives in multiple different orders.

My BIOS is F7. I have the HDD with my OS set as boot option #1. I can't set my SSD to boot because it wouldn't turn on anyways.

I have no idea how to make this work, could it be that it is faulty?

I have a Crucial NVME m.2 on my GA-Z97X-UD3H. I am running the F10b bios.

I dont remember which SATA ports my HDs are plugged into. Once i get home, i will check.
