    hi hamood_d10
    Did you install Intel IRST drive for SSDs or just use Win10 native default Driver?

    Try connecting to a different SATA port and make sure that port is enabled (and recognized) in the bios.

    As NemesisChild says make sure your 850 pro is connected to an intel sata port.

    From the manual here (Page 1-38)
    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/...EME_UM_WEB.pdf

    Connected the Samsung to B section in SATA6G_1 as I mentioned up (Not Fixed)
    Connected the Samsung to A section in SATA6G_5 or 6 and checked but its the same results (Not Fixed)
    Checked in bios and yes its recognized and AHCI enabled (Not Fixed)
    Uninstalled "Intel Chipset, IRST, MEI" and install them again (Not Fixed)

    BTW I called my friend since he have the same rig as I do but he customize it as he likes and he had the same issue

    It would be great if it someone who can help me here
