No problem at all. Just as a heads up, there is also the method of using an intermediary like Clover to act as a "Handshake" between the Bios and the OS with the NVME driver built in.

It does not require any BIOS modification, and can be removed at anytime. It looked into it at first, but I felt like the BIOS modification was the simplest route. At the same time, I was willing to take the risk of bricking my motherboard. 

So if you're interested in a workaround until ASRock comes out with a BIOS update, I would look up:

 [Guide] NVMe-boot without modding your UEFI/BIOS (Clover-EFI bootloader method)

Also, these methods allow people with older chipsets to use NVME drives with PCIE addon cards, even if they don't have M.2 Drives.

@ASRock_TSD please release a last firmware for Z97E-ITX/ac with TPM2-S and (full) NVME support. Pretty please?

Copied WindScythe's notes/links and was able to reproduce his results.

As the task seemed daunting the link below is the v 2.2 bios with this bios mod. It worked fine for me with no changes (SATA ssd) and I performed a fresh install of Windows 10 on a 256 GB NVME with Secure Boot and Keys Loaded, CSM Disabled. Fast boot turned on now and may be the fastest booting computer I have had.

Use at your own risk

Hallo

I would like to ask. The ROM that you posted is the final ROM we can use to solve the problem? Can I flash it through the UEFI Bios Tool? After I Flash it should I make any changes to the Bios settings, so the board could detect the M.2 card? And then I could make a clean install of Windows 10?

Thank you!!!

Late response as you have probably already tried it, but I flashed the rom in the bios with the Instant Flash option.

I disabled CSM and Secure boot in the bios to allow the NVME to be bootable.
