Moving OS NVMe into a new build with the same components

Hei All

I got my Aorus B450 Elite V2 bricked or burned, and my OS drive is 1 x NVMe, + 2 SSDs as data storages. I'm trying to either directly move my OS drive or at least acces it to retrieve my files with no success. I've changed my MB with the exact same one, mounted the NVMe OS alone, the boot system can't recognize it, tried adding an SSD with a OS to at least access the NVMe from withing the system, no success. Any clue to what should I do?

No success accessing the other drive, or no success booting at all?

Your OS is hardware bound to the MoBo, if i remember correctly. Switching that basically means you have to get another license. There's a way to move it over, but it's never worked for me. I just paid for another Windows 10 license. This is all assuming you're using Windows. You can clear the nvme drive in bios and get a usb for windows.

License has nothing to do with being able to boot or access the drive.

Both.

1/ Using only the OS NVMe, boot dashboard, no acces to any system, it's not even showing up on the boot mb page

2/ Mounting another OS SSD all along with the NVMe OS, accessing the SSD OS windows, the NVMe isn't showing up inside the system

If it's not showing up as a boot option (in the BIOS menu boot order, not just a quick select menu) then there's not a ton you can do aside from reseating it, making sure there's no signs of physical damage, updating the board's BIOS, or trying it on a different system. If the device is showing up in the BIOS boot order menu and just not bootable then I'd look at repairing the partition table (ex. bootrec.exe).

Should note as well if it has any critical info you're looking to get out of it (like a crypto wallet or something) and it actually is damaged then every time it's powered up you're risking more corruption (best to just give it to a recovery service).

: New mobo, so check bios settings for AHCI, CSM etc.

If not set properly drkve wont be seen or be seen but not eligable as boot device.
