Maximus VI Formula NVME EVO 970 Not Showing in Bios


Oct 2, 2010
Hello, I'm Bobby and haven't been here in quite some time. I'm desperately trying to get my Asus Maximus VI Formula to read my new Samsung EVO 970 NVME SSD. I've gone through every subject I can find online to get my bios to recognize the drive but am having no luck. Last night I followed a procedure (linked Below) and was able to flash a modded bios which should supposedly provide support for NVME. I was psyched when the flash was successful only to be let down when the drive still didn't show. The EVO 970 shows in Windows and can be used as a normal drive but I can not see it in bios which means I can't boot from it. I've attempted to install Windows 10 and when it reboots it goes to bios if no drives are connected except EVO PRO so Windows 10 will not complete I'd imagine. Therefore, in Windows 10 with Samsung Magician I cloned the drive in hopes that it would then have a boot record and show up but no luck. So now I'm at a loss and have no idea what to try next. I wouldn't be so obsessed with getting it working if others hadn't reported it has for them. Hopefully this explanation will be enough to get started on some help here and I'd like to say Thanks in advance for any and all support on this matter!
