    At Win 10 re-installation, my SSD wasn't recognized.


    My mobo is a MSI B450 Mortar Titanium and SSD is a Samsung 860 Evo which wasn't recognized during installation, but it is recognized in Bios.

    Please post 4 images into the thread:

    a) BIOS displaying the drive

    b) Device manager > click view > click show hidden devices > expand disk drives

    I was able to install win 10. I didn't have to do anything. The only thing that I did differenly is choose I don't have a product key.

    Didn't answer questions. Is this boot drive?

    Are there any issues showing in device manager.

    For reinstall you do not need to enter product key. You can check activation

    Start > Settings > Update and Security > down left hand side > Activation

    To clean install windows I would suggest it be the only drive connected to system. I would also recommend shutting off secure boot and fast boot in BIOS.
