Hello,
My Nvme drive is not showing up in Bios or in Windows

Current Mobo: B150i Gaming Pro AC
Storage: M.2 Nvme Corsair MP500 (Sata?)

I have gotten lost with the information about M.2 and whether it can accept Nvme vs Sata or PCIe vs Sata, etc...
Documentation says:
"supports PCIe 3.0x4 standard, 4.2cm/6cm/8cm length M.2 PCIe-interface SSD cards"

So am I understanding this correctly. The SSDs are either one of two M.2 Nvme variants...PCIe OR Sata.
It ran fine on my other Mobo that says "1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M key, type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices support (SATA & PCIE 3.0 x 4 mode) "

Will this Nvme not work on my B150i?
Thanks

NVMe drives will always be PCIe. M.2 drives on the other hand can be SATA or PCIe based. In short, yes the board should support the drive. Can you get into BIOS and see what BIOS version you're on at the time of writing? Check to see that the SSD is securely mounted into the M.2 slot. You might want to reseat the drive. To add, what processor are you working with? What is the make and model of your PSU? Make and model of your chassis?
