    HI,

    My system is built around the Asus Z97 pro (wi-fi) motherboard, currently running windows 8.1 on a Plextor 256gb M6 ssd on a pcie bracket... the speeds are expected for this SSD.... it is seen in bios no probs.

    For christmas I was given these:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00J9V521S?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00 and
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MOXDGYI?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

    I have taken the plextor m6 out of the pcie slot and replaced it with the xp941 512gb SSD placed in the top slot of the Bplus pcie bracket.

    When entering bios the new ssd is not seen, thus I cannot do a fresh install of windows 8.1 onto the m.2 ssd in the pcie bracket.

    I have updated my z97 pro bios to the latest listed on the asus support website to no avail.... bios will still not see the new ssd. I want the ssd mounted in the pcie bracket and not the m.2 slot on the board as I need all the sata ports.

    Please help. Many thanks.
