Just installed a Samsung 870 QVO and it's not showing up in my disk management but i can see it in BIOS and it shows up in my storage pool. Any tips?
Hello @maciasm1098 and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community forum. This should be a SATA SSD, have you tried connecting SSD in each of your motherboard's Sata ports? I"m assuming your board has at least 6 sata ports?
Windows automatically added the drive to your storage pool. Doesn't sound like this is what you wanted, so I would go into storage pools and remove the Samsung 870 QVO. Once you do so, you'll be able to see it in disk management.
Needs to be prepared for removal. Try via control panel. Windows + R and type: Control
Go to System and Security - Storage Spaces. The drive should appear there, and there should be an option to "Prepare for removal". This could take some time.
Delete the pool, which appears to be just the new drive. Then see if you can remove it. The alternative would be to remove it with the Set-PhysicalDisk cmdlet via powershell.
You're welcome, glad to see we could help out. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
