Can you check under this menu entry:




In there, once Windows is installed, your M.2 SSD should appear as "Windows Boot Manager: M2_1 Samsung 980 PRO" or so.





So you need to get that option available there if you want to have a chance of booting from your M.2 SSD. You don't need to change or set this option manually, but if it's not there at all for you, something isn't right.

I don't know what will happen, I insert a sata ssd and it starts up.
Yes, i've never seen this problem with a SATA SSD, but i've seen it once with an M.2 SSD on an older Intel board here on the forum. But that one wasn't solved either, so it won't help you much, https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?...-7971-cannot-boot-win10-from-m-2-nvme.366759/

Another thing in common, that was a Samsung M.2 SSD too. But i personally put several Samsung M.2 SSDs in MSI boards and never had such a problem. So we can't say this is a universal problem.

but when I look at the compatibility problem from the msi site, it shows that the modem brand and gen 4 are compatible. After all, msi can't write it according to his head, can he? it needs to be tested and write the brands and models there. I looked at all the parts that the motherboard is compatible with, from the brand to the model. I bought it with this condition. but this is the point i encountered. automatic bios booting. I checked the photo you sent in the previous message, nothing has changed. I guess there is no other solution left. I think I will replace it with samsung evo 970 3.0 gen.

When I plugged in the motherboard it had the 2020 bios update. I did the last update of this 2021. It can be seen from the photo I attached. I can't find any solution to this problem. very different. The only problem is that the 11th generation processor supports 4.0. So I wonder why he didn't write a more detailed article.

In my bios setting, there is no option you showed, I looked in a different place and couldn't find it.

Yes, something isn't right. I'm sure the SSD itself is ok though.

By the way, again, you can make a pixel-perfect screenshot by pressing F12 in the BIOS.

I am doing a format operation again. In addition, I'm downloading new software, after I try 2 of them, I will post in more detail.

I've done all the steps and I'm done. but same thing happens. While windows is booting and resetting, the bios screen comes to me. so I don't know what the problem is caused by, I think it's related to incompatibility. It is 100% that result and I will return it tomorrow. I hope they take back the opened box.

I've seen the same issue on other forum and someone provided a solution like this:
You will need to remove the USB Windows installer stick but it's when the setup dialog says "Your computer needs to restart now" and you have the option to press the button "Restart now". And if your BIOS is set to boot the SSD you installed to then setup will continue!

Worth a shot? But to be honest what you have encountered is quite a weird issue.

Thank you for your attention. I tried that method but it didn't work, I sent an ssd refund. I'm waiting for results. I couldn't solve the problem in any way, it's a difficult situation
