Hello! I have an MSI b250 Gaming M3 Motherboard and i bought the Samsung 970 Evo NVMe M.2 SSD for it but when i install Windows 10, the installer exits successfully but when i boot into the drive it just tells me "Reboot and select proper boot device".

The Samsung 970 evo is the only drive connected to the motherboard and is in the first M.2 Slot.
If i enable Windows 8.1/10 support, Samsung 970 evo doesn't show up in my bios.
I tried it with 3 different Windows 10 ISO's and with Windows Media Creation tool and Rufus.

I have searched online and followed a bunch of tutorials but nothing seems to be working.

Yes,

case 1:
BIOS settings put to default.
Windows 8.1/10 support enabled.
You can install Windows 10 on the drive but it doesn't show up in BIOS, or boot menu.

case 2:
BIOS settings put to default.
Windows 8.1/10 support disabled.
You can install Windows 10 on the drive but when chosen in boot menu goes to Black screen saying "please select proper boot device"
