I built my PC, everything was working, plugged the monitor in, it posted, checked everything on BIOS, and everything was fine, except my SSD, I have a M.2 NVME SSD and it didn't show up in the BIOS. Is that normal?

I just realized I posted this topic in the wrong section, I'm sorry about that

List full specs of your system.
Could be - you're using nvme ssd in a slot, that supports sata M.2 drives only.
My SSD is a Samsung 980 1TB and my motherboard is a Gigabyte Z690 UD DDR4. I'm pretty sure I installed my SSD in the M.2 NVME slot. The only difference is that the SSD is PCI-e 3.0 and the M.2 slot is PCI-e 4.0, but that should work just fine

Make sure sata controller in BIOS is set to AHCI and not Intel RST with Optane.

Can you show a photo with your motherboard with M.2 drive installed (M.2 heatsink removed).
I did exactly w hat you said, I downloaded the RST driver from intel and it still didnt show up when installing windows.
