Easier to just clone it to the external drive.
Clone and then swap.
Many can do it from within the running Windows using Volume shadow copy...
Most little drives come with a double usb plug that needs both plugged in to power up
Ear to the drive, hear anything?
It is not a uefi bootable module, it's a module intended to be added into an open source bios or coreboot. I don't expect it'd be a...
If I rename that to ia32boot.efi will that work?
I looked into seabios, but the cliff for me was the learning curve to compile it into a module. Aside from that, it looks ideal. Do you know of...
Check bios for "always on" setting.
Also, I had a similar issue that I traced to a LAN port that for some reason was triggering power-up.
What's the latest?
Get a thin tube and make yourself a ghetto stethoscope

Something like the Compute Stick would be ideal, but they're entirely UEFI.
For more retro activities, you need a BIOS Compatibility...
Checked your actual sync speed and a speed test result?
A pihole would do you a world of good too.
Even if you set it up in a vm just to play...
I would be curious what your multimeter says about the yellow, red and black wires when earthed to the PSU case.
M2 is run via the filtered mobo power.
SSDs also typically run on lower than 5v, so any incoming voltage is regulated down. Whether that's the 12v...

Then it has to be external.
You've run it with a new psu, new board on a cardboard box, with only the onboard stuff, all new cables, and plugged...
Your GPU... Is it PSU > molex > GPU plug?
Or PSU > GPU plug?
You've replaced everything. PSU, mobo, drives, cables, case (cardboard), so unless there's some billion to one short in your CPU,...
Dude, unless you've left an extra mobo riser-mounting-screw-thing in that's shorting something, it has to be external.
You HAVE to have something...
