Hello everyone,

I’m on mobile so please excuse any spelling mistakes but my computer has seen better days.

I bought two SSD’s with my amazon gift cards from Christmas. My pc originally only had a 500 GB 7200 rpm hdd. I installed both ssd’s properly and fastened them both in. I started my PC, found the MP500 drive from Corsair that I want to install windows on. All was well after the install.

Windows was up and running just fine, it had prompted me to restart for hardware changes. I happily obliged. I restarted and it took me to the BIOS because I forgot to set my ssd as my #1 boot priority. But now, my M.2 drive is nowhere to be found? Troubleshooting steps are listed below.

  • disabled csm, didn’t work
  • disabled csm, enabled secure boot with restored keys, didn’t work
  • enabled csm and set both options to legacy instead of UEFI didn’t work
  • disabled xmp, didn’t work
  • booted into windows install media, tried running diskpart and chkdisk commands to see if it even detects it. Neither did
Anyone have any other suggestions?
