I made sure that my m.2 was compatible with my board before purchase for that reason haha

You should then be prompted with the press any key scenario as per usual.
Now in the likely case that you've tried all of that, you may need a BIOS update
Sometimes I can see it in bios, other times I cannot. I don't actually want my boot drive to be the m.2 - i just wanted it to store all my steam games - but if I have to reinstall windows, I guess I will have to to get it to work. Also, bios is upto date.
It's getting so annoying.
Another thing, csgo seems less smooth than when I had a 770 and a 4670K haha - now have a 5820K and 970
