    If NVMe related settings and statuses show up in the BIOS after installing the new SSD, then you're good to go, the SSD is correctly detected and is operating in NVMe mode. Normally those NVMe related fields are hidden if no NVMe devices are currently present in the laptop.

    Ok first off you should set your BIOS SATA setting to AHCI
    Next why aggravate yourself with a clean install, simple use a quality cloning program and clone your current hard drive to your new SSD. In 15 minutes you will be up and running just as you are now.. On your much faster SSD.
    Otherwise GPS3DX has a good step by step on how to install UEFI https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...-installation) have fun with all the reconfiguration of your notebook after a clean install. Have all your Drivers ready to reinstall, Save your eSupport Folder is contains all of them and factory software.
    Anyway a Clean windows 10 install will overwrite all your hardware drivers with Windows Native drivers, so you'll most likely have issues when you boot up these will be resolved by reinstalling the Asus Tested and approve drivers.
