  1. I seem to be having a bit of a situation with this board and I thought you might be able to help. It would seem that somewhere I’m not sure if it’s in the Bios or if it’s on the board that for an m.2 slot there’s a switch between usb and pcie. Currently mine is at usb and I would like to change it pcie.

    Thanks if you can help.

    Also I was wondering if I upgrade the BIOS does it change all the settings back to default?

    • Normally I would save a BIOS profile before flashing and set it to defaults to relieve the variable which may cause a bad flash.

      Also, there is no USB signal at all going to an M.2 slot, can you please further explain what you are referring to?
