    I have managed to complete my first PC build.
    Ryzen 7 3800X
    Asus X570 MB
    XPF RX 580 GPU
    2 - 16g Vengeance 3200 Ram
    2 - 970 EVO NVMe.2

    It is all up and running with just a couple of glitches. The main one is that the second EVO does not show up on "this PC" in Windows. I went to the Bios and can see both drives listed. I did install the second EVO after I installed Windows.

    Second problem is the ram, rated at 3200 Hz is only running @ 2133 as shown in the bios.

    let it be known that before building this PC I had never been in the bios of any computer.

    thanks
    Ric

    You need to use disc management to create a simple partition on the 2nd drive before windows will see it. As far as the ram speed goes, you'll need to go into the bios and enable XMP profile.

    I was able to get into
    I was able to get into disk management while waiting for reply. Thanks again! What I see when I get there is in the top window is the C Drive and its partitions the second drive is not represented in that window. below that are the drive windows the top one Disk 0 and is mark as unallocated. below that is disk 1 which is the C drive and it's partitions. That is where I am stuck. I can't access the the 0 Disk to do anything accept properties which reports the disk is working properly and to make a new simple volume.

    That's what you need to do. Make a new simple volume.
