I wanted to try Linux on my second SSD, so I downloaded the net install for debian. It would not connect to the DHCP, so I tried the full disk install. I used Rufus and UNetbootin to make an installation disk on a USB. When booting from the USB, it tried and failed to connect to the DHCP again, so I continued without it. When I got to the screen for partitioning drives, my 2 SSDs were not visible. There was only the USB. This was my main problem with Debian installation and I should have looked for help at this point.
Next, I launched the Debian installation disk from my main SSD. It started to setup a dual boot from the SSD, so I cancelled. I wiped my second drive; it has 100% unallocated memory according to disk management. I tried booting from the USB again and had the same result. At this point my PC has been turned off and on a bunch of times. A couple times it shutoff automatically during booting.
At this moment, disk management doesn't see my main SSD(960 Evo NVMe SSD), but it is seen in BIOS. Also, my second SSD(850 Evo SSD) will not hold a windows install. It goes into a startup repair loop.
So much stress from what seemed like a simple procedure. If anyone knows what I have done to my main SSD, I would appreciate some advice. Also, what steps should I have taken to prepare my second SSD for Debian?
