I just built my first computer and when trying to install windows 10, it said I didn’t have anything I could install it on to. The ssd is a Western Digital 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280 (1 terabyte). It is the only storage device in the pc. My motherboard is an asrock b450m pro4.is there I driver for it? Or is it broken? I have no idea, but what I do know is that I had to wait 3 weeks for it to show up. Please help!

ps. The thing I plug the ssd into says ultra m.2, is that something different?

I would check if the SSD is detected in the Bios, it has to show up there before you can use it.
If not try it in the other M.2_2 (non-ultra) socket, note this socket will not work if you have anything using the Sata3_3 connection on the motherboard.

Asrock make B450M Pro4 and B450M Pro4-F motherboards, which do you have ?
