Please Assist me With this...


I'm not too sure whether this belongs here or not but..... I recently got a new SSD, and when hooking it up to the PC it just never showed up without multible restarts of the PC, and fucking about in the bios a little. after that it showed up, but after me turning off the pc for the night It just didn't reappear no matter what I did. I have 2 HDD's one M.2 and that new SSD. Heres my Delema, I have a B450F-Gaming from Asus, with 6 Sata slots and 2 M.2 slots, I might be Stupid but I am just wondering why when I remove one of the HDD's and replace it with the SSD it shows up just fine... Its more curiosity than anything because I can live without that Drive, But im wondering because im wanting to eventually upgrade my drives a little bit more later and add more.

Heres my full spec list if necessary:

Windows 10 64 Bit
ROG B450-F Gaming
AMD Ryzen 5 2600X
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Kingston 256GB SSD
Western Digital 1TB HDD 7200

The other Hard HDD that I removed is a 2TB SeaGate 5200 RPM HDD I believe.

What sata slot did you put it in? Some motherboards disable the first sata port when an m.2 is in.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

As per ASUS, with your board: "When the M.2_1 Socket 3 is operating in SATA or PCIE mode, SATA6G_5/6 ports will be disabled."


You need to move the drive non-M.2 drives to any of the SATA6G_1-4 ports.
