    Have you checked windows disc manager to see if it shows up ?
    Has it been formatted ready for use?*
    Mine was doing the same on R6E*

    Did you check the BIOS before installation?

    Sirrus,
    CPU work, RAM, Graphic card. Everything works i see bios, F2 work.
    The issue is the BIOS does not recognize the SSD so i have no chance toinstall Windows.
    IIn BIOS section SSD do not show in any section.
    THat is my problem.
    So either mobo is bad or SSD perhaps ?

    Best guess is that BIOS is outdated and needs updated to support that particular model EVO. The link I provided earlier explains that new out of the box Mobos need updated if the version number is lower than the posted one.

    I’m sure you checked but just in case, did you make sure the m.2 port has been Enabled? The slot you have it installed in...is possible it supports SATA M.2 while the other supports both SATA and PCI NVME M.2? If you are in a slot that only supports SATA it probably can’t work with an NVME. Have you tried the Advanced Menu of the BIOS, not the EZ version to check and enable the PCI boot capability?

    The link for compatible devices for ROG Maximus XI Code motherboard is to this one QVL file here:
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...736.1545745262

    Sirrrus posted a link for compatible CPUs, not devices for your motherboard. On page 5 it shows the MZ-V7E250-250GB (970 EVO) NVMe and MZ-V7P1T0-1TB (970 PRO) PCIe NVMe SSDs are the only 2 Samsung NVMe SSD drives that are compatible?

    I have the same motherboard which I'm building with a 970 Pro 1TB NVMe SSD so I hope all goes well when I'm done with the build.

    BTW WHAT SIZE IS YOUR SSD? Because please note on page 5 of the device QVL only the 1TB 970 Pro NVMe Is supported for now.
