Already used Samsung magician to secure erase it and even did a windows 10 reset and nothing

A bit of background. I just built a new pc using a maximus hero XII extreme as mobo but used my old SSD Sata drive in which i had Windows 10 installed (have a linked license) and my old HDD storage drives. Also installed a brand new Samsung Evo 970 2tb which shows in the Bios and says 2tb capacity.

But windows shows it as a drive called something like "reserved for system files" and has 540ish mb only capacity and 30ish mb used

I read that i should boot with the CSM option disabled but the thing is that if i dont disable CSM it wont boot it just forces me to BIOS but if i enable it it boots my windows install on the old sata ssd. Not sure this has to do with anything, Not sure what else to do, any help is appreciated!
