    Hi guys,

    Has any of you successfully booted Windows 10 from a 2280 NVME with a BIOS 1.08?
    I am using this:

    Kingston NV1 500GB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD (SNVS/500G)

    Any tips?

    No experience on NV1.
    However, this NVMe SSD is a DRAM-less and endurance is low.
    Does BIOS menu see such SSD's existance?

    DRAMless, if I remembered it right, needs to use system RAM (on the motherboard) as its chche.
    In boot time, some BIOS will not have system DRAM ready for NVMe SSD to use. That would be no good.

    If I were you, try to return it would be my suggestion.
    There is a thread discussing NVMe SSD successfully tested. Please consider those.

    I have installed windows on my WD Blue SN550 NVMe SSD (WDS100T2B0C) which is DRAM-less and it is showing in BIOS (1.08) and working properly.

    thanks for your responses guys! The BIOS (1.08) is able to recognize my NVMe. I just could not see it in the bootable options.
