@Fernando There is also this driver : https://alter.org.ua/soft/win/uni_ata/
But I do not know how it compares to M$ driver.

Also : Why not use Vista or Win 7 as base for XP generic AHCI driver (I thought older WDDM should work better for XP) ?

@agentx007:
Thank you very much for the link to the generic SATA IDE/AHCI drivers, which have been developed by the UniATA Group.
Unfortunately I cannot test them, because I don't have the required time.

If the customized generic MS Win10 in-box drivers shouldn't work, this can be a good alternative.
What I would need are the original MS Vista/Win7 in-box AHCI drivers named msahci.sys with the related INF files.

Guten tag, Fernando! I'm from Syberia. I have winXP x86 on Asus P5K. 120GB SSD and 3TB Seagate works fine. But I take a gift from friend- Samsung EVO 960 with M2 to PCIe adapter. Can I test your driver for try to work with NVMe?

@igel:
Welcome to the Win-RAID Forum!
You will not be able to use the Samsung 960 EVO as bootable system drive, because your mainboard has no UEFI BIOS. I am not even sure, that Windows XP would detect the NVMe Controller of your Samsung 860 EVO.

You can test any of the drivers I am offering within this Forum, but the question is, whether they will work with your system or not.
Which one of "my" various mod+signed drivers do you mean? For which purpose do you want to use the NVMe SSD?
Regards
Dieter (alias Fernando)

I understand it. If it wasn't a gift, I was never buy this SSD because of price.

I making videos about gold, trusts, banks so for video editing- cache and swap.
I have about 30TB info on HDDs but PC is 12 years old because all that time I live in Taiga Great Forest

And may be some NVMe to USB3.0 adapters? Speed doesn't matter in my case. And I have 4 ports through PCIe adapter.

@igel:
The missing UEFI BIOS of your old Intel P35 chipset mainboard is not the only problem of your current system. Windows XP doesn't support NVMe Controllers.
My tip: Install Windows 10 onto your current system drive and look what happens with your NVMe SSD. If it should be detected by the OS, you can use it as very performant storage disk drive.

#23 RE: Boot Windows XP from PCIe SSD (e.g. Samsung 950 Pro NVMe , SM951 AHCI)? by igel 12.01.2019 22:12

I found some NVMe to SATA adapters. but better is USB https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/NVME-PCIe...2916658250.html
it costs crazy lot of money.. i thing that one will be better https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/XT-XINTE-...2899168071.html
or this https://ru.aliexpress.com/item/NVME-M-2-...2965222286.html

Now will decide what better- USB or SATA

I doubt, that you will get the USB 3.0 Controller working while running Windows XP.

i hate all OSes earlier than XP even vista- all of them spying us through backdoors in kernel and MB bridges. linux better

You probably have meant "later" and not "earlier".

Enshuldigung sie bitter, of course later =) they send keylogs and screenshots to MS

With the right approach, one can achieve XP Pro x64 OS Boot NVMe.

I installed the Windows XP Professional x64 operating system on a Samsung 970 Pro NVME SSD drive using an ASRock X99 Extreme4 motherboard. Here's how:

Download Kai Schtrom's driver here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/nvme-for-windows-2003-server/

Download KB932755 here:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11619

Use Device Manager in XP x64 to install Schtrom's driver, which makes the NVMe SSD available as a storage drive -- and the XP x64 operating system as such now includes the NVMe driver. Run the storport hotfix.

Use something like AOMEI Backupper or Macrium Reflex to clone the XP x64 disk to the NVMe disk. Reboot into the BIOS and set the NVMe drive to boot first.
