Plugged in my new Samsung 980 NVMe and its showing up in bios but its not where to be found in windows, not in file manager, not in disk management, not in Samsung magician, not in 3rd party software like macrium reflect.
I've tried reinstalling Samsung drivers

I have 3 SATA drives and 1 other NVMe drive plugged in

Check Device Manager.
There should ne NVME storage controller listed under Storage controllers.
If you don't have it, then you need to install NVME drivers.
You can get those from Samsung or Intel.

If you have NVME drivers already and NVME drive still doesn't appear in Disk Management, then check windows storage spaces.
If the drive is in windows storage spaces, then remove it from storage pool and delete the pool.
