Your link is not to a bios picture.
What model motherboard (X79m-s)?
You will want to remove all other HDD and SSDs and only have the NVMe drive attached to install Windows 10 onto it.
Yes, it is. sort of.

If you look at the other photos, it shows the bios screens.

Thank you, i will try what you said.

That is an M.2 SATA drive.
Not NVMe.

Can you post a link to your actual motherboard?
The text you showed above states the M.2 port is NVMe.
If it is NVMe only, this drive will never ever work in that port.
Oh, no!

Are you kidding me?

Have i been that stupid and ignorant?!

So, my best bet is to mount this card into a sata adaptor and use it that way as a boot device?

Would that be better than using a hard drive?

I am so sorry for my ignorance.

But, THANK YOU. you have given me exactly what i need to know.

The motherboard is:
