M.2 sad isn't showing up in win10 or bios.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got a new m.2 ( https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07JLLLWKR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_IsymFb2X4JDFM ) but it won't show up at all. I have a gigabyte ga-a320m-s2h Mobo. I'm not a tech guy I don't really understand how to operate the bios stuff or anything. Can someone tell me what is going on with my PC??

Do note, whenever you do something like this Please look at a guide or something before attempting to do it yourself as it makes it a lot easier.

 

Are you trying to just add this as a storage drive?

 

Hit your Windows key and Type Disk Management. See if you have an Unallocated Device for 240GB ish. See if it shows up.

There may be an option to set it to SATA instead of pcie in the bios


CPU: i5-4690k @ 4.4 GHz | RAM: 12GB DDR3 1333MHz | GPU: Sapphire Pulse RX 580 4GB

When I do that it only shows my original sad and not the m.2. bios doesn't detect the m.2 either

Reading the manual would help.

Quote

1x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2* SSD support)
* Actual support may vary by CPU.
* Supports only M.2 SATA SSDs when using an AMD Athlon™-series/ 7th Gen. A-series or Athlon™ X4 APU.

Guessing you don't have an Athlon.

Mystery solved then. Get an NVMe drive.

Any particular reason?

Sorry, ignore my previous post. I misread the sentence in the manual about M.2 SATA support. Your board has both SATA and NVMe support with Ryzen, so there's no issue there.

 

What does it say in your BIOS in Chipset -> APU SATA Port Enable and APU SATA Port 0? If it says Enabled and [Not Installed], try reseating the drive.

That doesn't appear as an option for me.
