I have an Intel 750 U.2 set up as my boot drive with an ASUS Rampage V Edition 10. It's connected to the U.2 port. The computer crashed yesterday and now the bios does not recognize the drive. It had been working great for the month since I put the computer together. I'm stumped. Please help.
We understand you have an Intel® SSD 750 Series (2.5") that is no longer being recognized at BIOS level after a system crash.
Since the drive was working before, and your ASUS* board uses the X99 Chipset, we can safely discard any compatibility issues. However, just to be safe I checked your board's
The next thing to look at will be your U.2 cable. We're aware that most people don't have spares laying around, but if possible, we can recommend testing your drive with another U.2 connector. Alternatively, you may unplug the connector from both ends, make sure the ends are clean, then connect them again. Do the same with the power cable. You could also try testing the SSD on a different system if one is available.
Another thing we can try, although it would be unlikely that this would cause your drive to stop being detected out of the blue, will be to check and make sure that your BIOS is up to date.
If none of this gets us anywhere, then it's possible that your drive was defective and suffered from a catastrophic failure. If this is the case, you may need to http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/contact-support.html contact our support team to start a warranty replacement, if applicable.
