Hello,

I just finished building this new PC for my girlfriend but I can't find a way to activate the M2 SSD. It's not showing in the bios or the windows installation process.

System:
Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 Gaming X
SSD: 250GB WD Blue 3D NAND SATA SSD

Can someone help me?

Gaming X:
  1. 1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 PCIe 3.0 x4/x2 SSD support)
Your SSD is a SATA interface, so it needs an M.2 slot that utilises a SATA bus.
Or you need an M2 that has PCIe interface.
So that means that this drive won't work with this motherboard is that correct?
