I got my Asrock B450 Gaming ITX/AC board today and wanted to use my old Corsair MP500 120 GB drive in it.
But something is really weird.
First of all, the m2 slot is only mentioned in the manual as its on the board. None of the settings or features are mentioned, or even shown how to use it. Did not even come with the screw needed.
I have a screw, and installed the drive.
But its like 1 every 20 boot that the drive shows up?
Have Asrock really made a board where they kinda admit the NVME slot is more for show than for actual use?
The fact is, I used to have a Asrock board 3-4 years ago when I bought this drive, and it worked.
Since then I used it in a Asus board, where the drive also works.
I bought a external drive adapter for nvme, where it dont work in + now it dont work in this board.
I have not seen NVMe with so spotty support before.
Ill imagine if I could find a NVMe drive on the boards QVL list it would work, but everythig above really makes me not very comfortable with what this board can do and cant do.
Anyone have similar experiences?
