    Installed M.2 and cloned SSD, now not appearing in Windows


    So I decided to upgrade the storage on my computer using an M.2 (970 Evo), after i had installed the M.2 into the slot I used the Samsung Data Migration tool to clone my old SSD onto the drive. Before I cloned the drive it would appear in windows, but not I cannot access from Windows at all. It appears in my UEFI.

    things I have tried already:

    I tried booting without my ssd and HDD connected to the motherboard and it did not boot, just kept sending me back to the UEFI.

    And i have also tried using a windows installation media USB to install as well.

    Really hoping to find a fix. Thanks in advance.

    You probably need the Samsung M.2 driver.
