I recently picked up a Samsung 960 Pro (512gb) to add to my Asus z97-a as a strictly-storage drive. The OS (Win 7 Ultimate, 64-bit) is on another drive and working fine. I cannot get the BIOS nor Windows to recognize the new M.2 drive. I've also tried the Samsung Magician software, which also does not recognize the drive. I have updated the BOIS to the latest version which supports NVMe as advertised, as well as toggled the PIC-express slot to M.2 mode in the BIOS settings. Is there something else I'm missing here?
Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
Edit: Many thanks to Calvin7 down below. It never crossed my mind that NVMe support would not have found it's way into a Win7 update natively by now. I downloaded the hotfix as found here:
