I recently upgraded my processor from Ryzen 7 2700X to Ryzen 7 5800X3D, but I’m experiencing compatibility issues with my WDS240G2G0B nvme M2.1 SSD. I have already installed the latest BIOS version (7B86vMJ). Installed OS was updated Win 11 Pro. When I boot PC system is first stuck at BIOS post screen for a while. Then enter the BIOS, I can see there CPU speed, fan speed etc but no OS loading screen. I tried old BIOS versions but nothing happened. As I remember OS installed drive was GPT. I tried to install fresh Win11 but Win11 installer can’t detect M2.1 drive but I can see it in BIOS. When I select a GPT SSD for Win11 installation, it gives an error like “can’t create a partition or find the partition”
A spare SSD converted to GPT in another PC and installed Win11 with MSI B450A Pro Max. OS installed SSD is: KINGSTON SV300S37A120G. The OS takes 7.5 minutes to load with the Nvme SSD installed in the system. When I remove the Nvme SSD from the system, the OS loads in less than 10 seconds. I installed WD Dasbord on the computer but cannot detect the nvme SSD.
Somehow, there is a mismatch somewhere but I can’t figure it out. Any idea?
