    Hello all…desperate for your help.

    Situation: Newly build PC boots to BIOS now

    Specifics: PC started off booting properly the first week to windows no problem. All of a sudden, it started booting directly to BIOS and I cannot figure out why. NOTE: I do recall originally having an issue with Windows 10 installation NOT seeing my SSD in the M.2…but then after several attempts to install, it all of a sudden popped up and recognized it. Not sure if this is an indication of something important.

    What I’ve done so far to try and fix:

    - Ensured all things are connected properly (i.e. RAM, CPU, CPU heat sink/fan, etc.

    - Looked into BIOS and cannot see my SSD drive which is properly inserted into the M.2 slot.

    - Tried reinstalling Windows 10, but its having the same issue I wrote about above - - it does not see my SSD and therefore cannot reinstall windows.

    For now I am holding back my frustration and needing to put my fist through the screen…LOL. Hope you guys can help. Thank you!!!!
