    Posted: 01 Nov 2023 at 7:58pm
Hi. My new Crucial P3 1TB won?t show up in UEFI if plugged in the second nvme slot of my motherboard.

the disk is functional and works in the pocket. I found on another website a bios update for the Asrock B450 pro4 R2.0 board that forces the use of the M2_2 slot.

It has a beta bios with a new option called Force M2_2 to support PCIe type device which will force switch between SATA or PCI-E M2_2.


Please help me with my issue ;)

Dear Cuban,
Thank you for the posting.

For this case, please kindly download the BIOS 10.03A from the link below and update the BIOS to see if the M.2 SSD installed in the M2_2 slot can be recognized.

I have the same issue! Asrock b450 Pro4 trying to put Crucial PCIe 3.0 NVMe M.2 SSD on the M2_2 slot and boot just hangs. I don't have SATA 3_1 or 3_2, I just have M2_1 filled and that boots fine. When I install the Crucial SSD in M2_2 I get the BIOS screen but nothing else and keyboard doesn't work.

The link above didn't work for me. Could you please provide a link for the beta BIOS with Force M2_2?
