@Danil:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

I just have done a look into the latest BIOS 2902 for your ASUS Z97-K motherboard.
Result: This BIOS offers full NVMe support. So there is no reason to modify the BIOS.

Good luck!

Thx a lot, I'm very graceful to ur forum at all.

@fernando Success! I inserted the latest NvmExpressDxe file into my BIOS and I am now able to boot from the M.2/PCIe card without issue.

This confirms that the mod works on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula MB, with an AMD FX-8350 processor.

If anyone has any specific questions about my install, please let me know.

MB: ASUS Crosshair V Formula (not z)
CPU: AMD FX-8350
SSD: Samsung SM961 256GB
OS: Win10

ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 PROBLEM.

HI,
I have a problem on my motherboard.
I installed last BETA bios for "support NVMe" drive.

I have test this beta bios with samsung 950 pro, and uefi bios detect it and show me boot option. All work fine.

If i use OCZ RD400 drive, uefi don't show me boot option and i can't boot from it.

Please help me

Hi everyone, I'm reading this forum with great interest, I have a dual Xeon server board, ASUS Z9PA-D8, but no NVME driver exists in the latest BIOS, which is 5602 published on November 11th 2015. This BIOS is in the .CAP format (AMI Aptio capsule at the beginning).
I successfully inserted the NVME DXE module at the end of the DXE portion of the BIOS, I did that just to see how it works, as I guess the BIOS signature is now incorrect, and it won't flash if I try to do so.
Anyone succeeded with this mobo yet?
I read in the first post that Samsung 950 Pro has it own boot code in its firmware and that by enabling PCIE OPROM on boot devices on PCIe in the BIOS options, it can boot from it... I've just bought this SSD brand new *really* cheap on ebay, with a PCIe adapter...
Such a shame Asus did not include this in the latest BIOS. NVME drives were on the market at that time!

Thanks in advance for any information if you have some!

@MALEFX:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!
If your mainboard BIOS contains the required NVMe module, you should be able to boot off the OCZ RD400 SSD. I recommend to load the latest Toshiba/OCZ NVMe driver at the point of the OS installation, where the Setup doesn't see the SSD.

@Strikerrocket:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!
Although you will be able to boot the Samsung 950 Pro in LEGACY mode, I recommend to integrate the NvmeExpressDxE_2 into the BIOS of your mainboard (provided, that you know how to flash a modded BIOS into the BIOS chip of your mainboard).

Good luck!

@AntiBear:

Thank you very much for your report, which verifies, that my guide (written into the start post of this thread) is valid for AMD Chipset systems as well.
This is good news for other users with an AMD chipset system and an AMI UEFI mainboard BIOS.
As a consequence of your report I will rename the thread title and add a link to your report into the start post.

Thanks again!
Dieter

Goodmorning
Fernando my problem is only for boot in the bios.
If i use a samsung 950 pro, bios show me boot option
If i use a RD400 bios don't show me boot option.

The ASRock bios it's BETA for NVMe support.
Can i use your tutorial in this NVMe beta bios for add compatibility? it's the same procedure? or i need to remove official beta nvme support from bios and after use your tutorial?

please help me

A BIOS modding will not change this situation. Even if you would remove the NVMe modules from your original ASRock BETA BIOS and replace them by the NvmExpressDxE_2 module according to my tutorial, the BIOS and the Boot Manager will not show your Toshiba/OCZ NVMe SSD as bootable device. Nevertheless I am sure, that the BIOS detects your NVMe SSD (although it doesn't show it) and will give you the ability boot off it in UEFI mode. Please read the start post of this thread regarding this point carefully again.
The problem, that the Setup of the Operating System may not detect your OCZ SSD, can only be solved by loading an appropriate OCZ driver, but not by a modification of the mainboard BIOS.

No fernando.
If i boot windows 10 usb stick i view che RD400 and i install windows 10 without problem.
BUT AFTER, mother don't boot because bios don't show me RD400 in boot option.

If i use samsung 950 pro, bios show me boot option

@MALEFX
I suggest you to use NTLITE v1.30.4860 64-bit to insert the specific NVMe OCZ driver 64 bit into your W10 x64 image.

I don't have problem to detect rd400 on windows 10 installation...
I have problem on uefi bios don't show me option boot for it

@Fernando, @MALEFX
In my post #1527 I said the "maybe work" or "maybe doesnot work" for new NVMe SSDs on the market.

Yes, I think new NVME model needed support of "new uefi bios compatibility" for completly support.
For example:
I go on asrock support file of "after motherboard from my" (sorry for my english),
and i see page of bios file:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Fatal1ty%...ownload&os=BIOS
1.90 12/31/2014 point 4 ADD NVME SUPPORT
AFTER
2.10 4/30/2015 point 2 ADD NVME SUPPORT
AFTER another one
2.50 8/2/2016 point 3 ADD NVME SUPPORT

What does that mean?
that gradually add a list of compatibility with the new ssd nvme ??

I think This is my problem on my Z77 Extreme 6

@MALEFX and @100PIER:
According to >this< statement, which has been published by the OCZ Tech Support, it should be no problem to get the OCZ RD400 bootable, provided, that the mainboard manufacturer is offering a BIOS with NVMe support.
Nevertheless I cannot exclude, that the sort of the inserted NVme module makes a difference.
