I have Gigabyte Z97x-UD3H-BK motherboard. I want to purchase and install NVMe or SSD. But I am little bit confused. I need suggestion about NVMe or SSD for my motherboard. Thanks.
 
when you say not recognized do you mean not detected in bios or not recognized by the O/S? Win7 may not recognize it as a boot drive, Samsung provides an NVMe driver for that reason.

your SSD will be limited to 2X speeds as well so roughly 1100 MB/s

I am using Windows 10 and I think its plug-n-play device. I have checked it but did not get any option to enable in BIOS.

I am requesting because after buying NVMe or SSD if it does not support then seller will not take this back.

Yes, make sure it has the latest BIOS version installed.

Assuming you are able to get into the BIOS, go to the "BIOS features" tab and find the "CSM support" setting. Set it to disabled. That will allow for full UEFI boot features and partitions.

In the "SATA mode selection" section, make sure it is set to AHCI.

Likely, this thread has all the answers you need as this is a fairly common issue on older boards with early implementation of NVME drives.
