Asus ROG STRIX Z690I + Intel 13TH Gen not detecting M.2 drive.

Level 7

I recently decided to put together an ITX form factor PC. I bought a 13600k and paired it with an Asus Rog Strix Z690I. I didn't go for a Z790 since those are not going to be as easy to find where I live. I think I made the wrong choice because my 2Tb Samsung 980 Pro doesn't get detected in the M.2_1 slot. It does get detected without any issue in the M.2_2 slot tho. At first I though it could be a faulty motherboard so I returned it and get another one. But the issue is still there, no detection in M.2_1. I updated the bios to the last version(2103) to be able to use the system with Intel 13th gen. I guess it's some kind of incompatibility, and maybe I should invest in a Z790 or another motherboard instead. I don't know if any of you guys have encountered the same problem or have any clue want could be wrong.

Thanks in advance.

Did you ever get this fixed??
I just installed my 13900ks into my MAXIMUS Hero Z690( latest Bios 2204) and it booted fine the first time right into windows detecting both drives.
I shut it down to put a couple panels back on the case and after booting back up it will only go into BIOS. I have two 2TB 980 pro m.2's but boot now only detects the 2nd M.2 but dosent even show my primary M.2 with the operating system on it.

Did you ever figure this out? just installed new 13700k into Z690-i ROG Strix and I'm having the almost exact same issue.
