BIOS won't see M.2 drive after Windows 10 crash

Specs:

ASUS B550M-A Prime

Ryzen 5 5600G

4x8 T-FORCE DDR4-3600

1TB Crucial P2 M.2

2TB WD spinning drive

XFX Swft 210 Radeon RX 6600

500W Thermaltake Smart PSU

 

Was playing NFL Blitz 2000 in the Redream emulator for Dreamcast last night when the system threw a quick BSOD (too fast for me to read it) and rebooted, and since rebooting the system will not see the M.2 drive (which has my Windows 10 install on it). System was rock-solid stable prior to this with zero issues. Random bad luck and the SSD failed, or could there be something else I'm missing? I don't have a second system I can test the drive in, sadly, so I'm flying a little blind on how to start troubleshooting before I just throw parts at it.

Either the M.2 Slot randomly failed, or the SSD failed are the two most likely options.

 

with the Drive obviously being much more likely than the slot.

Try reinstalling windows, or go to PC devices and there you can try to fix your SSD problem

Yeah, a little difficult to reinstall Windows on a drive that isn't populating in the BIOS.

Since this motherboard has two M.2 slots, what happens when you move it to the other slot?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

Trash beauty:

Xeon X5550RX 570 4GB (defective) -Fattydove Racing 240GB - WD Blue 320GBHP Z400 - 6x2GB DDR3 1066 - EVGA 450W3

 

How many watts do I needATX 3.0 & PCIe 5.0 spec, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It died last night and I honestly forgot this board has a second slot so I haven't tried it. Probably will try that this afternoon before I head to Micro Center or Best Buy and pick up a replacement.

don't forget your P2 is most likely still under warranty, so you could buy a replacement to get it working *now* and then RMA that to get a second drive!

Moved the drive to the second M.2 slot and it still won’t show in the BIOS, so I’m assuming it’s the drive. 
 

Question now is, should I replace with another M.2 or get a 2.5” SSD in case it’s a problem with the motherboard and the M.2 slots are dead? Do they have a separate controller on the board that could have failed?
