    Fresh install of Win 10 Pro on Samsung M.2 Pro on Rog Maximus X (wifi-ac)

    Read a post here from 2017 in regards to installation of Win 10 Pro on an M.2 drive. The M.2 drive requires a driver, which I have. The question I have is: when is the driver installed for the M.2, during installation of Windows or after? If during install of Windows, is the driver (exe) just copied to a thumb drive then execuited and if so how and when? I read somewhere, can't remember where, the M.2 driver is installed prior to the install of windows, if I could remember where I read this I wouldn't be asking. Thanks in advance.

    the necessary W10 Drivers will install when you install Windows.....then you can install the necessary ROG Drivers (download the latest from Asus...put em on a thumb drive).....I installed a clean copy of W10 on my M.2...no issues....
