Boot Manager Gone After Bios Update...Windows wont boot from NVME drive

Hey all,

I'm at my wits end here with this issue. If any extra details are needed I'm happy to offer them just not sure what to do.

  • x570 Master board, updated to F6 bios released earlier this month using the @bios function. Bios seems to have updated fine, but will not boot from the NVME drive.

  • The drive is detected by the bios but just will not boot anything. I tried booting from an original ssd drive that the NVME drive was cloned from (SamSung 840 500 gigSSD) and it works. When I'm in windows the NVME drive is visible and even accessible.

-In the boot options in the BIOS i have the NVME Drive, the samsung ssd, an older HDD for storage, the samsung ssd boot manager, and the intel NVME boot manager, but when i try to choose a boot device at start up the intel boot manager is missing and when i choose the intel NVME it just fails and i get the message to choose a boot device.

-I tried clearing the CMOS and it didn't work.

Any help is appreciated THANK YOU!

If this is Windows 10, disable all hard drives or remove them and repair the drive by restoring to a good know restore point. If that doesn't work, plug in the Windows 10 install media, and attempt to repair the start up issue.

Hey thanks for the reply.

I was able to fix it not to longer after by simply removing the original SSD again. While its only a partial fix, I realized the issue was that with the sata SSD plugged in the BIOS was booting with CMS enabled (not sure what it stands for, but its for legacy hdd and things like that) with the SSD plugged in CMS was just chronically enabling itself and stopping me from booting from the NVME.

Since removing the SSD i can keep CMS off and boot from the NVME drive. I would like to get some data currently on the SSD but it seems like will be hassle at this point so I will make a project out of it at a later date.

Enable legacy boot, check the secure boot, switch that to Windows, then save and restart. That happened to me a few times after either a BIOS update or loading optimized defaults.

Thanks for the reply! I explained in another comment how I finally got it working.
