New WD SN550 NVME 1TB ssd isnt showing in bios, Device manger, or disc manager

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, i just got a new ssd today and its not showing up anywhere. I got a WD SN550 nvme ssd. My MOBO is the Asus strix z370-e mother board, ive tried multiple things in the bios including enablign the hyperx m.2 among other things without any sucess. Ive also updated the bios and same thing, no sucess. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get my computer to read the SSD

The Bios might only be showing the actual SATA drives
 

Right no promises on this one, but some motherboards You need to switch from SATA to RAID.


if not:

 

Another thing to try is if you have windows already installed, it might be worth loading windows up:

1. Open files

2. right click on ‘This Pc’
3. Click the ‘Manage’ Button

4. Go to the ‘storage‘ section
5. Click on ‘Disk Managment’

6. See if there is anything drives that say unallocated.

 

Sounds daft, but when my Skyhawks drive didn’t show up in bios, I rebooted and did this and suddenly it appeared.  
 

Hopefully one of these will work

Also to clarify, I’m not an expert on this, I’m just talking from my experience.
