My current issue is with my Samsung SSD 850 Evo 2 TB. For some reason when I try to connect this drive using any of the sata ports on the motherboard it does not show up at all. I tried reset but nothing. But when I disconnect it and plug it into my adapter the drive shows up in MacOS disk utility no problem. The drive even shows on my desktop. I ran first aid from disk utility and it says drive is fine.
So why is it I cannot see this drive in the bios using the SATA ports (tried all 4 and even swapped the cable for a different one) but I can connect it to my adapter and plug into USB and it shows up fine?
I’m sure I’m missing something but my goal is to be able to have this drive host all the music samples, song files, and content libraries using one of the internal sata connections and this way keep my NVME drive that I boot from relatively clear of the above mentioned items.
Apophis, or anyone for that matter, why is this not working or am I missing something?
