Has anyone had this issue? The M.2 doesnt slide into place. I had no trouble installing an M.2 into a MSI board before but for some reason the ASUS board just doesnt seem to want to accept a M.2

hhhhmmmmmm...bad M.2 socket maybe. Or there might be something stuck in there, or a more important question, does that MB support that type of M.2?

After much frustration, I managed to get it in (same as other mobo, just took a little bit more force. I was being too gentle I guess?) But the M.2 is NOT showing up in BIOS or Disk Manager, even after disconnecting all other drives.... Going to check in my other mobo BIOS and see if it shows

do that, but you may have to RMA the board
The M.2 definitely works. Unfortunately, the board is many years old, so an RMA is far from an option. I am planning to replace the mobo, CPU, RAM, and GPU relatively soon however. Its just unfortunate I cannot move all of my things into the new drive until those things happen. Hopefully after a few re-seats it will pickup? I know electronics can be weird like that

Thats weird, why would it be disabled when you innstall a M.2. It should swith automatically when you install a M.2
