Hi all,

I've just tried to install a Samsung 970 M.2 NVMe into my motherboard's M.2 socket, with the intention of using it as a storage drive, and not for Windows.

After installation, my motherboard (ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING) recognizes the 970 Evo but my bootable drive (a Samsung 850 Evo and my separate storage HDD) aren't found by the PC. Therefore, I cannot get past BIOS.

I took the 970 Evo back out and booted with no issues, and both my 850 Evo and the HDD visible in the BIOS.

I've updated my BIOS and re-attempted and still have the same issue.

I've Googled it and came up trumps as most other issues are from using it as a bootable drive.

Ryzen 7 1800X
ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING
16GB 3200
1080GTX
1 x Samsung Evo 850
1 x Western Digital HDD
Windows 10 64Bit

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
