Create a bootable usb by going here and using this software:

Then boot to that usb, and install windows on to your SSD

From brief reading, Z87/Z97 were a bit sketchy about NVMe support-- try disabling legacy mode/setting it to UEFI only.

What specific drive did you get?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It's NVMe and not SATA so it should accept it as a bootable device if you install Windows on it.

My m.2 is not detected in BIOs but it is in windows.

Right-- I've read some things that say that setting boot device control to UEFI only can make it show up.
