Mobo: ASUS ROG XI FORMULA
M.2: Samsumg 970 evo plus 500gb
The drive isnt showing up in bios or as an option to install windows on :/ Any advise would be appreciated.
are you sure it's seated in the m2 slot appropriately and in the correct m2 slot if you need to be specific?
Is there a way to tell if its in properly?
You could try to reseat it just be sure. Double check your motherboard manual for any gotchas, like use a certain m2 slot first. Or make sure you're not using certain SATA inputs that might be disabled by using a particular m2 slot. Do you need any certain BIOS settings configured.
