    M2 Boot

    My PC has stopped booting from the M2 slot recently - this has not occurred before in the last 4 years with this PC.

    To boot from M2 now I have to do the following steps (these do not save on shutting down the PC):

    -When the power button is pressed it turns on & off twice
    -Then gives the following screen:
    ----------------------------------------
    "AMIBIOS(C)2014 American Magetrends, Inc.

    ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO ACPI BIOS Revision 2702
    CPU: Intel Core i7-4790k CPU @4.00GHz

    Total Memory: 8192MB (DDR3-1600)

    USB Devices total

    Detected ATA/ATAPI Devices...
    SATA Port1: ST20000DM001-1ER164
    SATA Port2: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-224DB

    Enter setup to recover Bios setting
    Press F1"
    ----------------------------------------

    I run the Bios and change:
    Advanced>Onboard Devices Config>PCI Express X4_3 Slot (Black) Bandwith>M.2 Mode
    F10 to save / reset

    It then reboots and turns on/off

    Then I reopen Bios>Boot>Boot Option 1>UEFI: Samsung MZHPV256HDGL-00000 (244198MB)
    And, Boot>CSM>Disabled

    (I have read to change these on other posts)

    F10 to save / reset

    Reboots fine using the M.2 ??

    Any help would be appreciated as this is somewhat annoying!

    Settings not saving sounds like a dead CMOS battery. Try replacing that or check it with a multimeter if you have one.
