I disconnected all 3 of my other sata ssds just leaving my standard hard drive that I use for storage still connected as it was a pain to get to it.
Connected the M.2 drive in the m2 socket on the r5e.
Cleared cmos and reset to optimised defaults.
Entered bios to check drive was recognised, M.2 drive appeared in boot selecton.
Checked to make sure bios was still set to uefi mode.
Changed boot option to boot from uefi usb (windows 10 install).
Rebooted pc, Windows install ran.
M.2 drive appeared in disk selection along with my storage hdd that I didn't disconnect.
Setup windows 10 to install to the M.2 which partitioned and formated the drive.
Windows install went okay until the part when it reboots itself to finish the install and then gave a 'Windows could not set the offline locale information' error.
Then tried again to install but this time got a 'setup cannot configure windows for your hardware' error.
Now if M.2 drive is installed system hangs at bios splash screen.
I returned the drive to maplin and got a full refund. They didn't have anymore in stock so will buy another online and try again.
