Not able to boot from evo 970 M.2

First Poster

Hello erveryone,


As the title suggests, I cannot boot from my Samsung evo 970 M.2 SSD.

I've looked up many diffrent topics on why it woudn't boot and after 10 hours of try and error I figured you are my last chance.

All other drives were disconected when I installed Windows.


Main problem:

After the clean installation of Win 10, you have to reboot your system. It does the reboot but cannot boot from the M.2 SSD. Even when I specificly boot from the M.2 SSD itself. 

No errors shown, it just returns to the BIOS.


What I treid so far:

-Installing Windows 10 build 1809 on the 970  with CSM on and off (treid both) as well as with secureboot on and off

-Changed the bootoptions and the storage options both to UEFI

-Tried my two M.2 slots on my motherboard

-Updated the BIOS to the newest version


My Setup:

Motherboard: Gigabyte Auros Pro Wifi

Processor: Intel Core i9 9900K

PCU: Straight Power 11 850W

Ram: 16 GB HyperX Predator 4000 mhz


When you need more Information on anything, just ask and I will provide them.

Hope you guys can help me out here,

Thanks in advance.
