WD BLUE SN550 NVME SSD: causes Asus to sit there, no boot

Hey there!
So I purchased the WD BLUE SN550 NVME SSD from NewEgg recently, and when I installed this drive as a secondary ssd, when I start the computer, it never boots, and won’t allow me to get into bios (f2- for my laptop), it just shows the Asus logo screen, never opening into windows 11.

When I take out the ssd drive (2nd) I’m able to boot, as well as enter bios by pressing the f2 key.
I updated the bios, and it still doesn’t respond.

Thanks for your help.
