Disregard.  i'm a doofus.  SATA port 7/8 are legacy.  I needed to plug it into any of the first six ports....
I've got windows 7 installed to an NVMe drive in UEFI mode on the x299 dark with latest bios, 1.07.
I've installed an additional SATA SSD pulled from a working system (samsung evo 850).  i believe the SSD was previously formatted as MBR and not GPT.
My current bios setting for CSM shows the storage oprom in EFI mode.  is this preventing the bios from seeing an SSD with an MBR?  
What other bios settings should i look at and/or what steps can i take to troubleshoot this?

    Don't feel bad I've made the same mistake myself. 

    Specs: AMD 1920X Threadripper, Samsung SM961 M.2, 64GB Corsair DDR4 memory (half kit of CMD128GX4M8B2800C14),  ASRock X399 Taichi Motherboard
