Hi!!
I have a MSI Z97 gaming 7 motherboard and I just bought a brand new ADATA XPG SX8200 1TB PCIe SSD.

I bought an adapter in order to use it with PCle Gen 3 X4 and I installed Windows 10 on it using a Rufus stickdrive.

Everything should be working fine at this point but (as I checked on the BIOS) the SSD is not getting recognized by the motherboard as a bootable drive. It doesn't appear on the Fixed Boot Order options and the only info that I can see in the BIOS says: "PCle x16 slot (PCI_E5, Gen 3): Unknown Vendor, Unknown Device,, Running at X4".....

Does somebody know how to fix it??
:'(
