Customer Service Agent

Hello, @crossthread 

Regarding the ROG STRIX B350-F GAMING motherboard, the latest BIOS version is 6203.
Could you please confirm your current version,and have you used any adapters or extensions to connect the M.2 SSD?
Based on your description, we recommend checking the BIOS version and clearing CMOS to confirm if the issue can be resolved with default BIOS settings.
If possible, please try cross-testing with a different M.2 SSD.

Thank you.

Due to the ongoing regional holidays, my responses may be slightly delayed.
Thank you in advance for your patience.‌‌‌‌ 🙂
