Asus MoBo B150M-C Won't detect my PCIe M2 Card

Post by klabacita »

Hi people.

I want to add a M2 hard disk to my MoBo but my BIOS won't detected.

I purchase a PCIe 16x adapter for my M2, my BIOS won't show my new drive.

I had update the BIOS but same thing.

I cannot see my new HD.

I try changing some settings in my BIOS to.

Any tip?

Is the hard drive capacity (cylinders, heads, sectors) within the BIOS limits? If a PATA or IDE drive, are any jumpers set properly? And if using an 80-wire data ribbon, on the proper header?
For a SATA drive, if a class 3, it may not be recognized on a class 2 or class 1 system. Might be a jumper on the drive to revert to an older class. ... d-sata-iii

The BIOS won't see it as it is not technically a hrad drive attached to the SATA ports. Is it seen in the operating system? Do you want to install an operating system to it?

on the advanced tab, under pch storage configuration... anything in there?
seems this mobo outa be new enough to be able to see a pcie m2 device in the bios, but maybe not since it's not embedded onto the mobo through native connector.
