Hi guys. I finally completed my first gaming rig.

I want to use an M2 SSD to store my OS and a few other core programs, and my HDD for bulk storage.

I've possibly made a mistake in that I've already installed Windows, selecting the SSD, and subsequently graphics and audio drivers. The reason I went and did this is initially, before installing Windows, my VGA wasn't detected and gave no signal to the monitor. After setting up using the IGFX and installing drivers, this problem seems to have disappeared.

Can I still use the drives together?

System:

Asus Z270 Prime-A
i7 7700K 4.2 GHz
Noctua NH-D14 Dual Radiator
Zotac GTX 1080 Amp! Edition 8GB GDDR5
Corsair 16 GB DDR4 Vengeance LPX 3200 MHz
Corsair 650 W Gold Plus Cert.
250 GB Samsung 960 Evo PCIe NVMe SSD
2 TB Toshiba P300 Internal 3.5" HDD

Ah, OK.
Is it seen in Disk Management? Probably.
Can you post a screencap of that?

Thank you. As I hoped it's just that I'm new and not sure what I'm doing - setting it up now :)
