Crucial SSD MX300 525GB - not recognized in UEFI

 

 

Hi. I bought Crucial SSD MX300 525GB and its not recognized in UEFI. Only HDD Toshiba is recognized 500GB. 
I tried other sata cable and its fine and SSD is visible. So sata cable faulty or mobo?

My mobo is Asus Z370 Pro Gaming. Thanks for help. 

 

I have only 2 sata cables with mobo thats all.

Go into the UEFI settings (formerly BIOS)  and make sure the other SATA ports are actually enabled and configured properly.  

 

Also if you are using Windows, then you will need to go into the disk management to actually see the drive to  partition & format it so it is assigned a drive letter and can be seen & used by Windows.
