I have just built a system and it is running perfectly, except I have two M.2 NVMe drives, and one Seagate 5TB HDD. I managed to initialise and create a volume on the HDD but the second M.2 SSD will not initialise in Disk Management in Windows 11. The SSD shows up in the BIOS. This is the error I get: https://ibb.co/4MHczJ2. The SSD shows up when viewing C: drive properties: https://ibb.co/RhYmG3t. To be clear, the drive Disk Management is not letting me initialise is the 'Samsung SSD 980 PRO 1TB'. Would appreciate any help, thanks.

Thanks for the response, I couldn't get to the BIOS screen after reseating the SSDs. I'm going to RMA this motherboard and take it from there as it seems this is a frequent issue with this board. To be clear it's the ASUS Z690-i. Thanks for your responses, I will update here once I get a new unit

Updating here if anyone comes across this issue. The unit I received was faulty. No matter what I tried it did not recognize the second M.2_2 NVMe SSD. After I RMA'd it and received a new unit. Well what can I say, it worked flawlessly upon first boot. If your unit has the same problem and all the connections are correct and seated correctly. I would RMA your unit
