    I've registered here because I desperately need some tehnical help.

    Yesterday i've bought new Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD drive, which i've put onto my Gigabyte GA-B250M-D3H motherboard. Ever since then i've been having trouble with BIOS/Win10 not recognizing M.2 disk/slot.
    Drivers are updated, i've tried switching between UEFI/Legacy, unfortunately cannot find CSM settings to try that, tried switching boot priority (SSD not found), tried with disconnecting main SSD with Win10 on it to try and format/install Win10 on M.2 disk (SSD still not found).

    Additionally, it does say "Fast Onboard Storage with NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 110mm M.2 (Up to 32 Gb/s), GIGABYTE M.2 solution offers considerably faster storage performance and support for both PCIe and SATA interfaces for M.2 SSD devices." on their main site.

    Comparing one and two shows that motherboard and M.2 SSD are compatible, even their site suggests this SSD disk.

    Any other suggestions? [​IMG]

    I just went through this with a Asus board
    M.2 not recognized
    I had to disable CSM in the bios then was all good
