Red Light On SSD, SSD Not Found

I ended up solving the problem by just switching the m.2 ports

So I just finished putting my computer together and it has an SSD running as its main hard drive. While I'm installing Windows 10 it says no drivers can be found even though I have an SSD in. I take and look inside the computer and I see a constant red light on the SSD and I have no clue what to do now... 

 

My motherboard : B450 Aorus Pro Wifi

The SSD: Team Group MS30 M.2 2280 128GB

A drive controller, is the IC that the drive attaches to. Your SSD is NVMe, so it attaches to the PCIe bus, and doesn't have a controller.

Older motherboards / Server gear tends to have special modules to add extra drives / Advanced RAID configurations.

In this case, either your BIOS isn't set up to enable the NVMe drive, or it's a dead drive.

How would I enable it, and i don't know if it's a dead drive it's brand new from Newegg

I'd advise you to read your motherboards manual, or try a second NVMe drive if possible.
