Can't boot windows 10 from M.2 NVMe Slot - Asus Prime B450m

Hello everyone!


I upgraded my old pc a few days ago to the following config:


Ryzen 5 3600x

Asus Prime b450m

16GB XPG 3000mhz Ram

480GB Nvme m.2 SSD


I created a UEFI bootable pendrive with windows 10 to install the OS in the new SSD. I was able to install it, after turning off the secure boot and changing the windows OS option to Other OS.

The windows installed just fine, but when I try to boot from the ssd, it just goes back to the bios screen. It shows that SSD as a bootable option, but it doesn't boot at all...


I tried changing the ssd from MBR to GPT and it didn't work too...


Right now the SSD is the only storage drive in my PC, so I have no idea of what else I can do to make it boot the OS...


Please, guys, I really need some help!

Try Clear CMOS and boot into the SSD again? Otherwise it may have not partitioned the SSD properly and you should try remove all the partitions and do it again.

Oh, I didn't create a partition, I just selected the SSD. Must I create a partition?
