    RIVBE, Asus Hyper M.2, SM951

    I have the Samsung SM951 256GB ACHI version mounted in the Asus Hyper M.2 adapter, in my Rampage VI Black Edition motherboard.

    no matter what options i try, i cannot get the drive to show up in BIOS.

    I'm at a loss...

    From what I understand this M.2 SSD is designed for Z97 chipset or later boards, so that's probably why it isn't working.

    Even if you use an adapter you have to have a compatible UEFI BIOS for the SSD to be detected. A lot of people using older boards were also not able to get this to show up in BIOS.

    Here's a product review article that mentions about this issue:

    Hi , please see this video , --> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=No-ct8pQcIg


    The drive is not visable straight away in the BIOS , disabling the CSM module Windows will read and utilize the M.2-specific UEFI driver. You must use a UEFI Bootable version of Windows. Your Windows DVD won’t work unless you’ve created a UEFI Bootable DVD.


    M.2 AHCI SSDs do not appear within the BIOS until Windows creates the system partition with the EFI Boot Sector.

    Update if anybody should see this thread;

    the M.2 SSD's only work if they have the OP ROM on-board, which is not the case for the SM951, NVME or ACHI.

    Though i found some NVME drivers extracted from X99 and Z97 bios', which can be found here:
    http://www.win-raid.com/t871f13-Disc...e-Support.html

    and this tutorial, for how to do it:
    http://www.overclock.net/t/1571271/t...-intel-chipset

    I have modded my own bios, which have been working fine for 2 years. PM me if anybody is interested.
