And how was it installed on the other machine?`Of said machine already had an install on another drive then Windows won't have put a bootloader on the drive.

 

You should do the install on the new machine with only the boot drive connected, then add the others.

Which drive has your OS?  

 

Also note that SATA 2, 5, and 6 will be disabled with two m.2 drives installed.

Which SATA port do you have the Sandisk plugged in to?  Try removing the two m.2 drives and see what happens

There we go.

 

In my CSM menu it has Legacy options and I didn't know what your options or how things were labeled, but it seems like we got it sorted anyway.  High five.

You can convert the current MBR to GPT if you want to.  Super easy.  Then you shouldn't need to worry about CSM mode.
