I just built a new pc but my old SSD short circuted and died after using for only a few days. Now i have to install windows on my Nvme SSD (WDS100T2B0C) but i can't get the bios to correctly recognize it.

I tried following this https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/cant-install-windows-10-on-m-2.3082008/ solution but i cant find the set os option in my BIOS. Im using a aorus b550m pro-p motherboard with F10 bios version.

Do you have other drives that are connected and can be seen from within BIOS?

I was looking at the manual to see if there was anything about the M.2 ports disabling SATA ports, like is fairly common, but didn't see anything about that in the manual.

Keep in mind that the above linked thread is for a completely different motherboard.

It looks like there is a lot of if/then in relation to the M.2 slots, the gen speed it's running, and the CPU being used. It will be helpful if you post full system specs.

XMP is off.

no other drives connected. I can only see the ssd when CSM support is on even after installing windows onto it.

CSM is for legacy devices, so far as I am aware and am not sure why you would be using it on a system this new.....

By what method did you install Windows to the disk that you now cannot see without "legacy mode" on?

IE, like the installer had to be able to see the disk to install to it, but isn't now?

I used a bootable USB from the windos creation tool. I can see the disk inside the windows installer and install to it. When i try to boot from the disk i get a message saying reboot and select proper boot device.

Installer can always see the disk no matter the BIOS settings.
