This drive needs a miniature screw to actually mount on your board. If you don't already have one from the board which you likely won't if you bought on budget, you can't install the drive unless you get your own. They don't tell you this and they don't include one in the box. I guess they'd go bankrupt if they did?
Thank you for purchasing the Samsung 970 EVO NVMe SSD. Please know that these drives are not delivered with mounting screws since motherboard manufacturers typically provide the specific screws and spacers that fit the proprietary needs of each motherboard.
