m.2 1tb SSD causing PC not to load?
so i've bought a 1TB internal m.2 SSD but having problems getting it to work. I plug it into the motherboard but my pc fails to load, it goes into windows recovery options
any ideas how to get windows to load with it plugged in?

Some of the details Starrysky might refer to is.........
-Did you clone your old drive over to the M.2? Additional drivers will need to be installed which you can do in recovery mode.
-Is the new 1tb M.2 drive an NVMe or a SATA drive?
-Are you using the 1tb M.2 drive as a storage drive while booting off another drive? You might need to change the boot order in the BIOS.
-Is your system compatible?
Older Socket 1150 systems might have an M.2 slot but the compatibility with an NVMe drive is limited.
It's possible to run an M.2 drive off a PCI-E x4 card on an older system that does not have an M.2 slot. The issue in these situations is you can only use an NVMe based M.2 drive as a storage drive. The BIOS on an old z77 or x79 system won't allow you to use an NVMe drive as a boot drive.

Start with the windows disk inserted and change your boot setting to boot from disk.
When it boots from the disk - choose repair and install a new copy of windows on it.
