I just built a new pc and installed two nvme ssds. They're the same brand and model, one is 1TB and the other is 500GB. When I installed Windows, it showed both as an option to boot with, but after I chose the 500GB to boot with, the other one hasn't shown up since. The BIOS detects it, but windows doesn't. Anyone have any ideas?
 
could be you just haven't initialised it yet
You want to format it as GPT, ignore him saying MBR.


Otherwise,
search for Storage spaces in Search
If it only offers to Create one, don't do it... just curious if its set one up.

right click start
choose disk management
open next window to show upper/lower area
take a screenshot and upload to maybe imgur and show a link here.

Normally helps to only have 1 drive in PC when installing.
I wonder if its made it raid.

I went to storage spaces and saw that one was made for the whole 1TB. After I deleted it, the SSD suddenly showed up in disk management...:sweatsmile: Thanks for taking the time to respond!
