x99A Raider wont detect m.2 SSD
« on: 12-March-19, 20:49:38 »

Hey guys, sorry if I mess this up since I'm just getting into the nitty gritty of custom builds, I'll provide as much info as possible that I might be missing but here it goes. I cant seem to detect my m.2 pcie SSD which is an intel 660p 1tb. So point being is that I'm looking for some insight in what exactly I'm doing wrong, so far I updated all bios, disconnected all other drives except the one with the OS atm, though when I put it into UFEI instead of ufei +legacy like it was recommended before it seems to want to go straight to bios and not load my OS. I brought it back to the store I got it from and they tested it and seems to be working. Info of my build is as follows, let me know if any screenshots of bios is needed. The one I provided is just in case I did the UFEI thing wrong...


OS Windows 7 64bit pro
Cpu: I7-6850k
Cpu cooler: corsair H100i V2
Mobo: MSI X99A Raider
Ram: 16gb (8gb x 2) G.Skill ripjaw DDR4 3200
Gpu: MSI GTX960 4g
Psu: Corsair 750M
Case: Corsair Carbide Series Spec - 02 (? might be wrong)
Storage: Right now I only have a 64gb kingston SSD connected into Sata10 because I read if any drives are hooked up to SATA 5 or 6 it'll bypass the M.2 slot. But I was hopping to connect several other drives after I get this up and running.

You may try to enable the option of Windows 8/ 8.1 Feature. it can be found in the path of Advanced/Windows 8/ 8.1 Configuration.
It is the option that will make the BIOS pure UEFI.

Hello,
NVMe (PCIe) drives are not displayed in bios of x99 mobos; only M2_SATA are!
1/ Start Windows and open Disk Manager. If the i660p is not already intialized, DM will say you that a new drive is found and it must be initialized. In that case, choose "GPT" (NEVER "MBR" for a NVMe).
2/ If you did not see it in Disk Manager, there is a problem with bios. First thing to do in that case is a clear CMOS:
- Power off PSU, unplug the power cord and wait that all mobo's leds light off.
- Keep the Clear CMOS button on the back panel pressed during at least 20s.
- Plug the power cord and power on.
- You would see a message. choose to enter in Bios Setup.
   Enable "SETTINGS \ Advanced \ Windows 8/ 8.1 Configuration \ Windows 8/ 8.1 Feature".
Hoping it shall help,
:hat tip:

Hey guys thanks for the replies.

But yeah went into settings and advanced as recommended to take the steps provided but there were no Windows 8 options aside from what I took the screenshots of. Attempted to use it but all it does is totally skip what I'm using as a boot drive at the moment. Also when I open both the disk management and device manager, I dont see the drive itself. That said I might be out of luck sadly ;-(( .

One bios update has changed it! Rather, enable "SETTINGS \ Advanced \ Windows 8/ 8.1 OS Configuration \ Windows 8/ 8.1 Feature 8.1/10 WHQL Support". But, it forces "Boot mode" as UEFI so your boot drive must be GPT initialized. If it is not (it is MBR), of course the OS will not load and pc goes in bios setup. It seems to be the case for you. If you want, conversion of OS drive without missing files is possible... But, I'm afraid your problem is elsewhere: the i660p is DOA. Unplug it, clean its contacts, blow in the slot, plug the drive back and do again a clear CMOS. I hope you will now see it in Windows Disk Manager.
Good luck,

Hey guys, sorry about the wait, took me a while with my work schedule to clean everything and try again. But just wanted to update just in case in the future people have the same issue. Sadly it still didnt work so going back to using standard SSDs while I RMA just in case it's the drive itself.

I'll be honest, while the X99 series 'supported' M.2, it was pretty poorly supported. 

You need to ensure you have the Windows 8.1 configuration enabled, you need a GPT formatted drive, and whatever media you're installing from needs to also work with UEFI.

That's fair, thinking about getting an external that supports m.2 so I can test it again and format it, if that's the issue. At the same time kind of sucks I might have to perform a CPU and MOBO upgrade if I cant format it again.

Hello,
I have no problem with my X99 mobo and NVMe drive! This last runs very fine.
My suggest to verify before buy an adapter:
- Download and run >>Windows Creation Tool<< to create a Windows 10 installation kit on the USB pen (it must have at least 8Gb) with recent drivers.
- Unconnect (unplug only power cable) the drive with Windows 7 installed.
- Do a clear CMOS then enable "SETTINGS \ Advanced \ Windows OS Configuration \ Windows 8.1/10 WHQL Support" (do none other change in bios setup).
- Plug the USB key in one port on the back panel (it should be better to use the USB 2.0).  Boot on it. Select "Custom" as installation type. Do you see the i660p?
  . if yes, it works and is compatible. I will then help you to be able to use it with your current configuration.
  . else, it is either DOA (probability 90%) or the mobo does not recognize it (10%). Sorry for you!
To finish, in waiting, you will have to disable "SETTINGS \ Advanced \ Windows OS Configuration \ Windows 8.1/10 WHQL Support" to be able to boot again on your Windows 7 because it is installed on a MBR initialized drive.
Hoping it shall help,

Sorry about the late reply, if I seen it sooner I could of replied since I actually saw the windows 7 issue and tried 10. Tried it and seems like my SSD is DOA. Going to RMA it,
