Hello, i've recenlty built my new PC and i can't seem to find the M.2 anywhere in the BIOS (neither on windows).

The M.2 is the following: PNY CS2130 1TB SSD M.2 NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4
and the motherboard is an ASUS ROG Strix B550-F.

I have two HDD only and it's only detecting one (i know why and i will fix it later), could it be because of that or something else?

I have the M.2 installed on the top slot (closest to CPU)

Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure on the new AMD chipsets but typically with an NVME drive the bios won't see it until it loads the driver for it which happens when windows creates the System partition with the EFi boot sector during install.

Disconnect the other drives and go thru installing windows to it.
