Bios won’t see the nvme ssd drive after installing the windows

Hi guys, my 1st post here.

For the past few days I was trying to install the windows on my nvme ssd drive and I still can’t get it work. I’ve tried everything I could found on the internet and still no luck. The last thing I tried is the green suggestion from this post: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-3473090/install-windows.html

yet I fail at the 8th step as my bios does’t see the drive at all, only my usb stick drive. 

If anyone run into this issue before or knows anything that could help, pls help me out cause now I can use my nvme drive just as storage which is kida bummer as I have a 2tb hdd drive :/

What board do you have?

What ssd do you have?


Did you try a different m.2 slot?

I have an asus x370f board and it comes with only one m.2 drive.

Also I am using a samsung 960 evo.

I remember working on a system with an NVMe drive and it didn't see it in the bios either. I think Win10 does not have NVMe drivers built in, you'll need to grab it off Samsung's site and then add it to your Win10 setup files, similar to installing RAID drivers during the XP days using a floppy disk. After the NVMe drivers are installed, your setup will see the NVMe drive. Install like normal and when windows installs successfully, in the bios your NVMe drive will be called "Windows boot manager".
