    when use AHCI in bios .,.in windows you need AHCI controller drivers
    17.9.-x-x contains more 300series chip drivers
    or 18.6 contains only one devices "from 300 series +AHCI ,,.try luck" ,.,.,here is compatibility only for RST mode // old devices

    try update from DEVICE MANAGER "disk controller AHCI" update from file


    ,.,compatibility problem
    if MSI updated its bios "RST ROM" so I think it would also work normally
    when run RST and is "not configured" no raid disk -all run on AHCI .,,.but here is this buggy
    ,,..,or SSD support is bad and need "direct AHCI mode"

    Hmm, that makes sense, thanks! I'm surprised to hear that CMOS battery would discharge already in 5-7 months... That seems incredibly short time, considering the lifespan of a laptop.

    In my device manager there is no "device" with AHCI in its name.
    Under "Storage Controllers", there is only "Microsoft Storage Spaces Controller", and two instances of "Standard NVM Express Controller".

    We did not reset the BIOS at all. The laptop battery was disconnected several times though. Another forum member suggested that the CMOS battery is dead, which I believe is the case.

    Anyway, everything seems to work fine now, so I probably won't modify any settings or drivers from here on.

    you now getting random RESET ?? or only before "on FAIL-safe" configuration ?

    ,,.cmos battery is possitible measure "mutimeter" but thinks is OK
    some setup in bios "bad" is sometimes AUTO repaired or all time reload "optimal/fail-safe"

    not fully saved RAM training - random reset or longer boot
    bad SATA controller - similar boot-loop
    or bad OC from windows "using bad domains in bios"


    /////
    ..drivers
    if all works - ignore drivers ;)

    edit

    and depends on the current state ,.,.now all works ??
    not come resets or similar boot loops ?

    EDIT2
    and I think it's optimal in your bios - RST and FAIL - too RST mode
    for device what works only on AHCI - infinite boot loop -example / resets

    In a laptop, a CMOS battery is needed only to save the BIOS settings when the battery is turned off.
    The CMOS battery is essentially a backup power source.

    I do not know how MSI engineers screwed up when creating the GS65 8-Gen laptop, that the CMOS battery runs out so quickly. Similarly, I noticed that the battery drains quickly.
