I just purchased a Gigabyte X470 Aorus Motherboard along with Samsung 970 EVO 500GB - NVMe PCIe M.2. yesterday. The bios doesn't read the device anywhere. It did the first time I installed Window, then I had to reinstall Windows because I kept getting the blue screen with random crashing. Under Disk Management, it shows the SSD is connected just fine. However, under the Bios in the "Chipset" tab, it does not show in ports 0-5. It will show other hard drives, but not that one. In the Bios under the "Bios" tab, the Boot Option 1 and 2 also do not show it. This is needed (I think), because I can not install Windows here. I used a different hard drive I had to even get windows working. Someone please help me figure this out.

The person on Reddit had the same problem with the same motherboard and SSD. What happens if you move the SSD to the other M.2 slot? The M.2b slot will give lower speeds. Fortunately, for some reason when the poster moved the M.2 drive back to the M.2a slot it was detected. It's possible the SSD itself failed if it is not detected in the M.2b slot.

Looking at the support site for your motherboard there is an updated chipset driver dated 6/2018.

I could give you a hug right now. I was about to go to Best Buy and pay them $100 to even look at it. Thank you so much

FYI, if the SSD is in the M.2b slot it will not be as fast as the M.2a slot. You can check your motherboard manual on that.
