My M.2 (SSDPEKNW010T801) isn't recognized as a Boot Drive

Hi,

I have a Intel SSDPEKNW010T801 installed in a NUC7i3DNB.

In the BIOS under Devices - SATA and also under Devices - PCI I can see the Hard Disk under M.2 NVMe SSD.

But under Boot Drive Order I cannot select the drive

Any any idea why?

Latest BIOS is installed.

Kind Regards,

1. Do you have Windows installed on this drive? If yes:

2. Please attach an image of Disk Management.

3. Open Administrative Windows PowerShell. Run diskpart. In diskpart prompt run list disk. Attach the image of PowerShell windows to your post.

4. In order to get better information about your system, please download the Intel System Support Utility (SSU). Run the SSU scan (check "Everything") and save the results. The .txt file with the results please attach to your post.

Thanks for the quick response.

No, Debian Buster with uefi boot.

Is see the disk in BIOS but I cannot select it to boot from.

Is there something in the BIOS I overlook?

Attached some pictures of the BIOS settings.

Hi @WimDG 

I don't see any thing wrong in your BIOS settings. I suspect that Linux installation on the SSD is not bootable or is not configured for UEFI boot.

I suggest the following changes in BIOS settings:

On Boot > Boot Priority screen enable,  Legacy Boot (in addition to already enabled UEFI Boot)

On Boot > Boot Configuration > Boot Devices,  disable Network Boot and Optical.
Try now if your drive is booting.

If the above not helps, try to Install Windows 10 (just for test) on this SSD.

Can you boot from it using F10? Are you sure that it has a GPT partition table?
