Hi, am in the process of installing a new Samsung 970 EVO Plus 250GB NVME M.2 SSD and carrying out a clean install of Windows 10 Pro on it but it is not being "seen" in the Windows setup process. Do I need to download specific drivers for this??
Thanks
Kev

Are you sure that BIOS is in UEFI (CSM=OFF) mode ? Is it recognized in BIOS ?
yes, I've tried it in CSM on & off modes
The NVMe M.2 is seen in the BIOS as is the original when I fitted both. Strange thing is when I ran the Windows Installer with both NVMe cards in the original Samsung 970 showed in the list of drives I could install in windows process but the new 970 did not!!! I am suspecting that if the BIOS is not at fault then the new Samsung card may be duff!!! I am not sure as it tests ok in the BIOS check!!
Cheers
Kev
