    Samsung EVO 960 NVMe issues (G751JY Laptop)

    So I have tried to spoil myself and upgrade the hard drive that came with the laptop. I ordered the new NVMe that samsung came out with and of course it doesn't work after using the data migration tool from samsung. The drive is recognized in windows but not by the BIOS. Has anyone had any luck with this? Is this something ASUS may try to fix with a BIOS update? Or should I cut ties and return the NVMe. Thanks all and have a Happy Holiday.

    I'm pretty sure the G751 does not support NVMe, look in the sticky threads there is a lot of discussion on which type M.2 SSD will work with G751

    Hi Tierce,
    Clintlgm is correct, our G751JY/JTs don't support PCIe NVMe M.2 SSDs only PCIe AHCI M.2 SSDs ( OEM Samsung XP941 & OEM Samsung SM951 (AHCI only).
    Neither of the two supported PCIe AHCI M.2 SSDs are produced any longer, and are hard to find for sale anywhere. ASUS won't provide a G751 BIOS w/
    support for M.2 NVMe SSDs b/c the G751 mainboards Intel HM87 express chipset & Intel Broadwell CPU don't support M.2 NVMe only M.2 AHCI.
    Another words return your Samsung 960 Evo unless you have a newer system to put it in that supports M.2 NVMe SSDs.
