Hi

This is my first build so learning as I go.

I have bought two nvme drives a Samsung 970 plus and a Samsung 970. I've installed them on my Asus Crosshair Hero VIII 570x motherboard. When I go to put Windows 10 on how will I know which one is the plus as that is where I'd like Windows to be installed? I know I have to leave any other drives disconnected until after installing windows but, dont know how to do it with 2 x nvme installed.

You absolutely need to have only ONE drive connected when you do this install.
This includes any NVMe drives.

Wasn't sure if I could do that but, will uninstall it and put in after I've installed Windows if that is the easiest way. Thanks
