    Dual drives and nvme

    Hello friends, I have the weirdest problem! I have an Asus Z170I Pro Gaming motherboard with an M.2 slot where I have placed a 512GB Samsung 950 pro as my primary OS drive. My secondary is a Samsung 850 pro SSD. Every single time I boot the system, it goes straight to BIOS. Every.Single.Time...
