Anyway, I think I should ask for an RMA. As far as I know, that bolt should be fixed to the metallic pin/support, or whatever you call it, numbered "110". Mine is detached, and there is no way to screw it again to the support 110, and it's not even possible to unscrew the support 110. I tried with tongs, but it is stuck.
Unlike the other support of the slot with not heatsink. That is pretty loose.
There should be little stand offs that are packed in your motherboard box along with the tiny m.2 screw. The standoff goes in one of the holes to the right of the heat sink screw. Then the tiny screw is used to secure the m.2 drive to the top of the standoff.
Sorry I didn't mention the standoffs, I had forgot this board has them separate unlike my previous boards that were already attached to the board in the 80mm hole.
Just line up your m.2 drive to determine which hole the stand off goes in.
