Asus Hyper m.2 x16 only showing only 1 Samsung 970 Evo NVMe

Level 7
Hi All,

I have been searching for a solution to this for a very long time but cannot find an answer anywhere. Would really appreciate if someone can help me out.


I purchased Asus Hyper M.2 x16 card and wanted to add 2 X 1TB Samsung 970 Evo in a RAID 0 configuation (non-bootable) but at this point to be honest, I'd just be happy for it to show up in windows as a separate drive.

My Win 10 Pro OS is on a separate 500Gb Samsung 970 Evo which is on Slot #2 (M.2 socket B) of the motherboard and is under the heatsink. Vertical M.2 Slot#1/Socket A is empty.

My issus is that the BIOS or the windows disk management only show 1 X 1TB nvme.

I have moved the Hyper M.2 card from PCIE_X16_Slot 2 to Slot 3 but still nothing.

I have tested both 1TB nvme and both of them work independently on Vertical M.2 Slot#1/Socket A. Both drives are clean and have nothing on them.

Could anyone please tell me what else can I do for it to show up in Windows Disk Management?
