I have installed a Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 SDD drive with 500GB on my GA-Z97X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) motherboard.

This unit doesn't appear on the BIOS and either on the boot order list, but I can find it with Linux using the command: "lsblk -o KNAME,TYPE,SIZE,MODEL". And I have also installed Windows 10 on it. I have checked after Windows 10 installation that this units appears as a drive on Linux.

But when I try to select this drive as the first drive to boot, it doesn't appear.

How can I select this M.2 drive to boot from it?

BIOS version is F6.

BIOS date: 05/30/2014

BIOS identifier: 8A06AG0I

SSD: V-NAND SSD 970 EVO Plus MVME M.2. Model: MZ-V7S500. Model Code: MZ-V7S500BW.

it doesn't show in the sata list as its pcie, i know that much. I can't see much mention of m.2 in your manual
I could guess its on Peripherals page

maybe update bios to F8 - https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z97X-Gaming-7-rev-10/support#support-dl-bios link

How to boot in it and install win10 on PCIEX card :
  • SATA Mode Selection : AHCI
  • PCIE Slot Configuration (PCH) : Forced x4
  • CSM Support : Always
  • Windows 8 Features : Win8
  • Natively recognize by windows 10 during the installation (of course later install Samsung NVMe Controller Driver)
