Recently built a tower but the M.2 SSD is not being detected at all. I have tried resetting CMOS, deactivated CMS and cleared Secure Keys, tried auto, x2 and x4 options but nothing has worked. Brand new x470 Prime Pro with most up to date BIOS version also. HDD works fine but I want to install Windows onto the SSD (the HDD was not connected when trying to install on initial boot).
I have search but to no avail. Any suggestions appreciated. Have also seen posts stating that their SSD was a dud and had to be returned, is this common and likely to be the same issue as mine?
MOBO: Asus x470 Prime Pro
SSD: Samsung NVMe M.2 970 EVO Plus 500GB
