    NVMe M2 Problem

    Hi and happy new year, I have a spare PCIe slot on my Maximus VII Formula m/b and decided to treat myself to a Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M2 and an adapter. Windows had no problem finding it, but no joy in the bios (I was hoping to boot from it). Is there any way to fix this or am I stuck with a very fast storage. Thanks for any help....Ron.

    i have the same exact problem. there is NO real answer to this issue. Its driving me crazy.... i cant get my NVME ssd to work (brand new).

    it worked for a while and then suddenly stopped working. from time to time it works but its super random. now my sata SSD is not showing in BIOS aswell and its super frustrating. both my SSD and motherboard are new. Sata SSD is older but it was working fine with my previous motherboard. im disappointed in ASUS for not providing with a solution here.

    Hello and Happy New Year!
    Here's what you should do.Try to make a Windows bootable usb stick in GPT mode with Media Creation Tool. Of course, you will start the BIOS in UEFI mode and you will be able to install Windows without problems on the NVMe M2 SSD.
    Before starting the installation of Windows on the NVMe M2 SSD, format it.
    I hope this will help you!
