I have recently gotten a new samsung evo 960 1tb nvme m.2 ssd, however the ssd only shows up in the bios as a boot device but not a storage device under the sata configuration, however is shown under NVMe configuration ( no setting to chnage just the details ). Futheremore the ssd doesn't show up in device or disk manager. I am using a Asus Rog Strix x470-f motherboard with two hdd installed, one of which has the OS on it, running Windows 7. I have already updated the BIOS to the newest version and tried to do a fresh install with all the SATA cable removed ( usb installed got stuck on windows logo screen, and afterwards the ssd wasnt a boot drive until sata cables were plugged back in) tried a fresh install from optical drive as only SATA cable connected ( ssd didnt show up). Sorry for drive links for pics, was having issues uploading pics from phone.

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

If you've got Windows 7 on one of the drives, then you should disable CSM in BIOS.

Which M.2 slot are you occupying with the M.2 SSD mentioned above? Samsung have an NVMe driver that I think you should install. It's found on Samsung's support site for the SSD. Why do you have an ODD in 202 ? :/ I'm now wondering how you managed to get an installation of Windows 10 through. Did you use Windows Media Creation Tools to fabricate your USB installer for Windows 10? All you're going to need is a pen drive.
