    Good afternoon folks,

    So I just got done building my new system for VR game streaming and general home office applications, and I have come across a concurrent issue about my Samsung Evo 850 500gb SSD. It was in, working and all good until I booted into my old HDD, initialize the device in Disk Management and then went into the install of windows where it now never shows up. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks a tonne,
