    Z690 Formula Bios update 2103 from with 13900k, no nvme drivers detected

    I'm struggeling for 5 hours now to make m2_1 slot Gen4 Firecuda 530 to be recognized. I even added PCI 4x Optane 900P card. And both are not recognized. I tried enable/disable VMD, CMS. I can only see SATA drive. Both drivers where installed before with Windows 11. Something with TPM?

    I also flashed it to 2004 with same issue. Im 40 years old and have ALOT of experience. But this is next level.

    Did someone else had same issue after update?

    I had the same problem after updating to 2103. Only the 530 OS Nvme drive and the usb drive I used to update the bios were visible. My sata drives and a second 520 Nvme drive were not visible when I was checking the Boot menu. I not quite sure what I did to fix it but it was corrected after rebooting the pc. I think I tried changing the boot priority order with the only drives visible and rebooted and all was well again.

    Also did you update the bios ME firmware to v16.1.25.1917. I had already updated the ME firmware prior to updating to 2103 and still had the missing drive problem with a 12900K and a Apex motherboard.

    Hi I had the same issue after installing bios 2103 and a new 13900K. You need to install the latest Intel MEI firmware for the M2_1 port to work again.

    What I did was move the drive to M2_3. Install the latest MEI driver to be able to update the MEI firmware. Then the MEI firmware is updated you can move the drive back to M2_1. It also fixed memory beeing able to run at much higher frequencies.

    I think Asus made a mistake here. They should have had a note saying latest MEI firmware required. Or updated both during bios update if possible.

    Hello,

    As above. New ME Firmware and Driver are required. See here for details.

    I just have one question here. I updated to Bios 2103 before installing the MEI firmware since I did not know it was a requirement at the time. Everything seems to be working. Should I try to install BIOS 2103 once more just to be sure or leave as is?

    After installing of the new 13900k and Nvidia 4090 FE I had the issue on not booting into windows as the nvme drive was missing because of old intel me firmware. So i used Rufus to get a bootable WIndows 11 to go usb stick and booted from it. When WIndows was loaded I could install the latest Intel ME firmware as suggested above and then I could again boot into my regular windows 11. The G-Skill DDR5 RAM also work now with XMP1 and native 6000 MHz. I used the latest bios 1203 on a Z690 Apex Mainboard.

    Yikes, will this issue be present if I have a new motherboard and update to 2103 before ever installing windows to any M.2? I am waiting on my PSU that will be here today and I was going to update the BIOS before installing anything...

    Or is this specifically a windows issue seeing as it has to be installed from within windows? Unless I'm missing something?

    I have had nearly the same config like you have at the moment. Please check at the Bios start screen your current Intel ME version. If its lower than the one posted in te beginning you can update it from Windows. Install new bios 1203 (for 13th intel CPU generation) Afterwards insert the new components, re-setup the bios and everything should work fine! As well as Windows onto the M2 SSD.

    Do you mean, go ahead and install 2103? (or 1203?) and then install windows, and then update the ME from the new windows installation? I have my M.2 in the first (top) slot.

    thanks for the help.

    I installed a 13900k yesterday and I already has 2103 on my Z690 Hero, everything was good. Woke up today to my NVME drive not appearing in the top slot. After a lot of shuffling drives around I stumbled on this thread. I can confirm updating the ME fixed things for me. My only question is why things were fine yesterday!
