    New build isn't seeing m.2 drive

    Put together a new build today, Strix B450-i mother board, I took the NVMe drive from my old PC and installed that on the new board, however it's picking it up, not in bios not when booting with a media drive with windows on it. I cannot for the life of me figure it out, can anyone provide any help?

    If its Win 7 you're trying to install it wont have NVME drivers or USB drivers for AM4.
    If its Win 10, dunno, press shift + F10 anywhere in the installer to bring up a CMD prompt, type diskpart then list disks to see if the installer can see it at all.
    Also try one of the other sets of USB ports as some are provided from the CPU and some are provided from the chipset.

    is this the latest Windows 10 installer https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10
    I have never had an issue with Windows 10 seeing a NVME drive, is it still working in your old rig?

    Do you have sata connected at the same time, I remember some boards share m2 lanes with Sara or pcie slots.

    Nothing in BIOS that enables / disables the different slots?
