    Hi, I have a Asus strix z390-f motherboard with a Intel core i5 9600kf and 16gb of corsair ram. Nvidia 980 with a 500gb nvme boot sad and a 2tb hdd. The system started up fine and has been working fine for the last week since I put it together. But today I went to turn it on and it's only booting to bios. It detects the drives but isn't detecting them as boot drives. I have tried clearing the cmos and reseting the bios but to no avail. Does anyone else have anything I could try short of reinstalling Windows As I don't have any backups of the data in the system.

    Boot the system with a linux live usb. Copy whatever data you need ie pics, work files, whatever. Once that is secure, then attempt to fix the system. I checked the support page for that board. There is a bios update that addresses drive compatibility; are you running the latest bios?
    If linux will not see/mount the drive or drives, then the drive has a problem. Use linux ubuntu or MX linux for this task.

    I have a saying "Data you do not backup is data you do not care about AND you should, at some time, expect to lose said data"
    All drives fail; it is only a question of when your drive will fail.
