    Problems with installing Windows 10 on the NvMe Samsung Evo 960

    Hi guys.
    Does anyone can tell me how can I install Windows 10 on the Samsung Evo 960?
    I have tried many different solutions to this problem which I have found on the net, but nothing seems to be working.

    Motherboard: Asus Maximus IX Code
    CPU: i7-7700 K
    Memory: 32GB 2400 MHz
    GPU: at the moment disconnected from the motherboard

    1. download the programme Rufus
    2. chose GPT partition scheme for uefi
    3. in format option put "V" in quick format, create a bootable disk using Iso image, create extended lable
    4. chose location of windows (iso)
    5. start to format and create bootable flash drive
    6. in motherboard bios make the flash drive the 1st bootable drive , save and exit
    7. installation begins after restart

    You haven't stated where things are going wrong.

    Make sure the drive is fully seated in the slot
    Make a bootable Windows install using the Media Creation Tool and the latest update
    Boot from Windows media
    Select drive during Windows install

    That's it.

    OK this is what I have done:
    created a bootable Windows install using the Media Creation Tool and the latest update.
    before the install, I have changed the BIOS settings to the below:
    Launch CSM - Enabled
    Boot Device Control - UEFI and Legacy OPROM
    Boot from network devices - UEFI driver first
    Boot from storage devices - UEFI driver first
    Boot from PCI-E/PCI expansion devices - UEFI driver first

    Boot\Secure Boot - Other OS

    Saved and Exit

    Install from USB media started OK, I have chosen the Evo 960 drive as the one on which the Windows supposed to be installed. All good right until the info, that in order to finish the installation, Windows needs to restart the computer. I 've removed the USB media once my computer went to reboot and.....nothing, black screen and after it goes directly to BIOS. I have tried as well the same procedure, but without removing the USB media while it was rebooting and the process automatically starts from the beginning of installation.

    The disk is seen in BIOS but it doesn't want to load windows from it.

    Any clues?

    When you get to the drive selection portion of the Windows 10 install did you delete all partitions on the drive first?

    Also, do you have another drive (any old HDD) you can use to test installation?

    1. Yes, I did. - unallocated space.
    2. To be sure that the Win10 media USB is not corrupted, I have installed Win10 on my old SSD and it worked the first time without any problems.

    So far nothing worked. I will try to do the ISO image using Rufus, maybe this will help.

    Just a long shot. If you have any, disconnect any other drives you have connected SATA or M.2. Then try the install again.

    I have followed your instructions, but where do I find the Windows ISO image? I thought it will happen automatically. (picture attached)

    Evo 960 was the only drive connected to my motherboard during the installation.
    I have even disconnected all other USB wireless devices, removed my graphics cards, etc.
    The only devices still connected to my motherboard during the install, was the USB wired mouse and keyboard, my water cooling and my 4K TV through HDMI. That's it.
