What model?

so I tried an m.2 ssd and that one works!

 

Even my normal ssd gets recognized in the file explorer and can be used.

What is the BIOS version number? The picture doesn't show it.

I now updated it to 7C56v1A1

 

First it was 7C56v18

If you bought the motherboard new I suspect it's time to consider returning it as defective.

 

To summarize:

  • You are using the latest BIOS
  • You have reflashed the BIOS 
  • You have tried multiple SATA power cables in all the PSU SATA power ports
  • You have tried multiple SATA drives in all the motherboard SATA ports
  • You have tried multiple SATA data cables
  • You have tried the SSD on another machine

True?

Not exactly. But the likelihood of two new SSD failing is small. Unless its an unlikely compatibility issue.

Weird question. Bit could I put my laptop m.2 ssd in my motherboard? And can I immediately use its windows 11 that is installed on it?

You might be able to, but I wouldn't do it. It could damage the drive data if something on the motherboard is acting up.

I'm willing to take the risk since I'm out of options at this point..

Are you not able to return the motherboard?

 

Is your laptop able to connect to a SATA drive?

Zenbook 15 from 2019 I believe. 

 

I managed to get a m.2 ssd. See If that will make a difference so I will test that tonight.
