hey guys any help will mean the world to me. so ive had my pc up and running with this drive for the past year, so I know it is not a defective drive. so in my bios of my asus strix b450-f, I clicked the load recommended defaults button (i did this so i could easily undo my cpu overclock). when i clicked on that, it made everything factory new resulting in my m.2 not showing up in my bios ANYWHERE yet alone being shown as a boot option. all of my drives are showing up except my m.2 ssd (which has windows on it). i think this is just a matter of how to configure my m.2 in my asus strix b450-f. thank you for any comments -joe

Why did you reset BIOs exactly?
An M2 drive can still become defective.

"When the M.2_1 Socket 3 is operating in SATA or PCIE mode, SATA6G_5/6 ports will be disabled. "

I'd look for a setting in your BIOS to see if you can switch the enabling of SATA 5/6 and enable M.2
it should be done automatically, but a BIOS reset may have changed this.

It isn't - because now it tells me you were overclocking, which can equally cause issues. It might not be relevant, but it could well be.
I had to ask to identify the reasoning for it, because some people do these things when a problem is occuring. So I just wanted to understand.

Have you checked BIOS for the onboard devices config in SkyNets post?
