I’ve been working on this for 2 days and still stuck, hoping for some genius who can help me.

Current Setup
Processor: i5–10600k
Motherboard: ASUS PRIME B460M-A
GPU: MSI GTX 0170
RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance LPX
SSD: Kingston A2000 1TB M.2. NVME

I’ve been following this link to install Win10 Enterprise onto the NVME no problems. https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?115969-Install-Win-10-M-2-nvme-drive
Fresh install, no drivers and it boots fine to the win10 desktop. Restarted multiple times with NVME only.

The nightmare starts when i try to add my formatted SAMSUNG Evo 860 SSD by connecting it to the Mobo via SATA6, the pc don’t boot but i can still get to the BIOS. I can boot to the BIOS with both drives plugged in or with the NVME plugged in only. Boot priority is set to the NVME. The PC will no longer boot to windows anymore.

Any ideas?

BIOS updated to 1401 released 24-Aug-2020.

Hi Wongy84.

What SATA6 port are you using on the board for your 860 SSD? SATA6_1?
 
That's SATA6G_5 and SATA6G_6.

That's fine. There is no issues. You're not connected in SATA6G_1 so it's fine.

Try SATA6G_2. Which is on another controller.

You could try another SATA cable too.

The system should be able to go to the OS.

Currently with no drives connected except the NVME, I can't even boot to windows.

I think there is a problem there already. let me trying connecting to SATA6G_2.

It should be working but obviously the sensible step is to try a different sata port and namely one of the top 4 ports which run on a different controller.

Have you tried this??
Tried pulling everything out and only NVMe and it won't boot still, this happens only after i tried plugging in the SATA HDD.
