To install Windows on a PCIe SSD, you need to follow these steps:

1. Download the latest Windows 10 ISO file from Microsoft and save it to your computer.

2. Connect the PCIe SSD to your PC via an M.2 slot or SATA connection.

3. Turn off the power to your PC and remove your old hard drive from the system.

4. Insert the new SSD into its designated location in the motherboard?™s expansion bay. If there is no such space available, then use another empty PCI-E x16 slot instead.

5. Power up your PC with the SSD connected. You will see the ?śWindows Setup??screen.

I'm trying to install Windows 7 Pro onto a pair of Samsung 950 Pro drives in RAID 1. For the life of me, I cannot get past the "Missing Drivers" error. I have the latest Intel NVMe driver, though that doesn't do much good if I cant install the OS. The Windows installation picks up an Intel Rapid Storage RAID driver, from the ASRock CD, but fails to install it. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here, but if anyone has any suggestions I'd really appreciate it.

Booting from an NVMe PCIe SSD is only supported on systems that support UEFI. UEFI is a system firmware that endeavors to improve upon legacy BIOS and standardize system processes, such as booting, loading drivers, and more. It is important that the operating system installer is booted in UEFI mode.
