I Can't Install Windows 10 With a M.2 Sata SSD

I'm using a ryzen 5 2600, TUF B450M-plus gaming motherboard, and a Crucial MX500 1TB 3D Nand Sata M.2 type 2280SS Internal SSD.

I was using the windows 10 installation tool and the M.2 was recognized in the installer and the bios. However, the bios does not recognize it as a bootable drive. I am not sure what the cause is. I've already tried disabling the CSM and setting the boot option to other OS in the bios.

Its not bootable as Windows is not installed use your bios key on start to boot off installer and then select install to m.2 sometime you have to format it first
