Using the ASROCK B450 Steel Legend, Micro ATX.
UEFI Version P2.10

Trying to install 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2, using method 1 here ;
http://forum.asrock.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1236&title=how-to-install-windows-on-a-pcie-ssd


I've plugged it into the Ultra M.2 slot.

Neither of my M.2 Ports are listed in the Storage Device(s) list. While I see the screenshot in the install book it lists,
Sata Port 3 shares bandwith with M2_2
Ultra M.2 supports PCIe and NVMe.

I've also booted up my 2018 DVD version of Windows 10 in UEFI, I get to the install screen and the M.2 Drive isn't listed.

I have no idea what to do.

I've just installed Win10 the old fashioned way onto an HDD, and tried to install the drivers for the drive. It's not being picked up at all, is something wrong with the Motherboard, is that why I can't see it anywhere in the motherboard or with windows booted?

This has already been mentioned a few times. Same issue with Bios 2.60 for me. When will it be fixed is the question.

Is it worth flashing the BIOS upward? Has anyone gotten a Samsung 970 Evo Plus to work?

you can try 2.70 but i dont think thats the problem as boot problem should be fixed in 1.0.0.3 agesa

have you tried to totally disable csm save and see if the drive is visible

Yep, now that I checked my video card on an HDD install and saw it was capable of reading the updated GOP format, I tried a disabled CSM install, no dice on drive showing. I can't even get it to show up in a Windows 10 installed HDD on the system :/

Anybody? ASRock help desk was less than helpful.

I haven't even got a response. Never buying Asrock again.

That is incorrect. If I put in a previous gen it shows up in storage.

OIC, thanks. I thought in uefi mode CSM disable, can't be seen....

oh my, it's pci-e nvme that is can't be seen, I've mixed up wrongly.

I have this board also, and have all the parts to finish it and these threads have honestly kept me from even trying to finish off the build. I have NVMe that will be my primary boot device. Not tried it yet.

This is my first build in years, replacing an Intel i7 2700k and this was to be when I finally jumped. After all that waiting I managed to jump into this lol.

I'm using this board (bios 2.60) with a 970 Evo Plus as boot disk, works like a charm.

Hmm Evo Plus is a different model though, so that might be why. Unless the unlikely scenario that the NVME port is defective for us. But I don't think that's very likely.

I see for 2.6 ,

*ASRock does NOT recommend updating this BIOS if Pinnacle, Raven or Summit Ridge CPU is being used on your system.

I'm using a Pinnacle Ridge....

I just got this board and tried to use a 960 EVO (non-plus version with my existing OS install and all my user data on it) with it, cannot detect it in either M.2 socket.

I installed a PATRIOT 512GB PCIe3 x4 2280 VPN100-512GM28H and it is working perfect with bios version 2.5

Other installed working hardware:
Ryzen 7 3700X 3,6 GHz 8 core processor (Zen 2 Matisse) at 3600MHz
Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 kit 2 x 8 GB DDR4 in slots A2 and B2 at 3200 MHz
graphics: Gigabyte RTX 2060 mini ITX OC 6GB

The only problem I met was with bios 2.1: I had to remove the second 8GB DDR4 memory module from slot B2 temporarely to be able to upgrade to bios v2.5
From there everything worked fine.

It's a Samsung NVME compatibility issue. Asrock never replied to my support case. I grabbed a board from another manufacturer

Solution for NVME SSD not showing up on steel legend motherboards:

Hey everyone. I found the solution. I have been working through this exact issue in the Asrock B450 Steel Legend ATX motherboard. I have a Adata XPG SX6000 Lite NvME drive installed in the top m.2 slot, and a second HDD installed in the Sata3_1 port. I initially installed windows on the m.2 ssd with no issues and got everything configured. I then initialized the HDD in disk manager and off to the races. Upon restarting the PC, it failed to boot and the m.2 ssd would not show up. After much frustration and troubleshooting, I reinstalled windows onto the HDD and concluded that the SSD must be faulty after much hardware troubleshooting.

I RMA the ssd and after 1 month the new one arrived. I installed it in the computer along with the windows usb stick. I loaded the bios and boot override to the usb stick. In the windows disk utility I formatted the HDD to unallocated space and did a fresh install of windows on the SSD. Everything was going great. Got into windows, installed updates and drivers with many successful restarts.... final step, initialize HDD in disk utility then restart for good measure. BOOM. Failed to boot, ssd doesn't show up in the bios....

Okay so I RMA the ssd for nothing and they actually issued a replacement... In an act of pure desperation, I shut down the computer and unplugged the HDD from Sata3_1 then restart. SUCCESS! The ssd shows up again! Boot into windows, everything is great. I shut down and plugged the HDD into Sata3_2 then boot. Both drives show up in bios, restart and everything goes smooth. Problem solved!

For good measure I shut down the PC and plugged the HDD back into sata3_1. Startup, no ssd. Okay so clearly there is some kind of conflict between m.2_1 and sata3_1. Remove your second drive from sata3_1 and you are off to the races!!!





Extra tips:

- Top port is for nvme ssd only, you must use top port for nvme ssd and bottom port for SATA ssd.

- DISABLING CSM COMPATIBILITY WILL MAKE M.2_1 SSD NOT TO APPEAR

- SET BOOT PRIORITY #1 TO WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER (SSD NAME), Do not select "NVME:(SSD Name)" or it will fail to boot.

- Enter Hard Drive BBS properties and make option #1 NVME:(ssd name), disable other options (This will cause the PC to enter bios if there is a failure rather than showing other screens.)

I have the B450 K4 Fatality MB
Ryzen 5 2700X
2 16GB Ripjaws DDR4-3600 1.3v
Using onboard video and 970 EVOPlus 1tb NVMe ssd
Chipset light blinks, processor fan spins up with light
No video output, no beep code.
removed memory to see if i got an error beep but nothing. Switched mem modules, started up with only one mem module, moved SSD from M2.1 slot to other ssd slot . Removed ssd. Nothing. I should think I would get a beep code of some sort but nothing. Bad MB?
