Hello,

I'm building a brand new PC. All the parts are brand new. I'm building it with a single 1TB SSD, no HDD. The SSD is a Western Digital 3D NAND.


I have a USB with Windows 10 installation on it plugged in, but instead of booting to that, it goes straight to the BIOS. In there, it lists SATA's 1-4 and M2_1, M2_2 (I assume those are SATA's 5 and 6? This board is supposed to have 6) saying that there's nothing connected, even though I have it connected to SATA 1. I tried swapping out the cable, no luck there.FIF
It detects the USB that's plugged in, but I can't really do anything with it.

The mobo is set to UEFI.

I'm a n00b, I have the data cable connected, but not the power. Weird that the mobo and SSD don't come with both.

Maybe it doesn't matter anymore, but the SSD is: https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=179_1927_1928&item_id=114570

RAM: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08JG2WXSW?dchild=1&s=electronics&keywords=ddr4-2666&ref_=as_li_ss_tl&language=en_US&sr=1-5&linkCode=gs2&linkId=ecad38d2ae69caafbde6aeea6035221d&tag=thtebusgu06-20

Processor is: Intel Core i3-10100 Comet Lake Quad-Core 3.6 GHz LGA 1200 65W BX8070110100 Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630

Edit: The power supply comes with the power cables needed.

The "power" cable comes from the PSU.
Not the motherboard.
