Hi everyone,

As Title, i got trouble with my M.2 Samsung 250GB 970 EVO Plus:
  • Mainboard: GA H97-Gaming 3 rev 1.0, BIOS F7.
  • Intel i7 4790.
  • RAM 16GB.
  • I have VGA card: ASUS GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5.
When i plug my Samsung EVO Plus to mainboard and get a fresh Windows 10 (UEFI boot), my SSD has Gen 2x2.

So, can you help me to fix this error to get full spec. of M2 Samsung 970 EVO Plus with PCIe Gen 3.0 x 4, NVMe 1.3 ?

Thanks for supporting me,
Philip.
