M.2 SSD No Longer With Us?

Hey guys,

As the title suggests I am having an issue with an M.2 ssd. Currently trying to setup an unused server to be a temporary desktop for a friend of mine (it was going to be a surprise) and the M.2 boot drive is giving me some real headaches. It's a 512 gb NVME SK hynix drive from my old Dell XPS 9560. I tested it with an M.2 USB enclosure in the process of testing a bunch of different M.2 drives to see which one would be best for this system, and I had no trouble with it being detected by windows then. File transfers also worked just fine. I popped it into the system (ASUS ROG STRIX b450-I w/ Ryzen 3 3200g and 16gb ram) and proceeded to install windows on it. It went fairly smoothly at first, and then when it was time to restart in the installation process, all I got was a black screen with a non-blinking cursor in the middle of the upper left corner of the screen. Ever since then, it takes about 1-2 minutes to boot into the BIOS and the M.2 drive is not detected. It's also not detected by my laptop via the M.2 USB enclosure anymore either. I tried flashing the latest BIOS and resetting to the factory defaults and nothing has changed. Did the motherboard just kill this otherwise perfectly fine drive? Really confused here and I have no error codes or anything to go off of, so any suggestions would be welcome. Thank you!

Try it in the enclosure again?

Seems like it decided to die...

I just dug up an old PCIe M.2 adapter and I'm going to try that. I'm kind of afraid to try anything else in the native M.2 slot on that motherboard, I only got so many drives lol
