hi all,

I need your help with the nvme ssd ( kingston A2000) 500gb . .I tried to instal Windows 10 pro 64 bit on it but each time want to click Next to instal I got an error that its not possible .
The drive 0 itself is not recognized as partition and making partition is not working while in de windows setup .
This was the error : 0x8030024
The Nvme ssd is recognized in the Uefi .

My bios is up to date ( v.7.54 )... on Asrock z170extreme 4 .

I7 6700k , 2133mhz ddr4 , gtx 1080ti sea hawk x .

I tried to unplug all my devices and tried to instal windows 10 when they where unplugged but without results . I also wanted to see if the nvme ssd was recognized in the windows 10 itself so I installed windows 10 on my older ssd .
I have found that he was recognized but I couldn't make the partition cause all the options where Blanco,all i could do was check the settings .

I also tried this metod ...

the UEFI, in the?Boot?screen at the bottom, is an option called?CSM?(Compatibility Support Module.)?CSM?is Enabled by default. Click on?CSM?to reveal its sub-options.

The sub-option you are looking for is called?Launch Storage OpROM Policy. The default setting is Legacy Only. Change the?Launch Storage OpROM Policy?setting to?UEFI Only.

That's the main thing that must be configured. In the?Storage Configuration?screen, the?SATA Mode?should be set to either?AHCI?(default) or?RAID. This is really for any SATA drives you will be using, but is also needed for PCIe AHCI SSDs. Those are described in the PCIe SSD description section if you are interested. Why anyone would be using IDE mode with modern mother boards and drives is beyond me, but just in case?do NOT use IDE mode!

Once these options are configured,?Save and Exit?the UEFI, and?go right back into the UEFI.

Not quite done yet. Do NOT be worried if your PCIe SSD is not listed in the?Storage Configuration?screen or?Boot?order list.?That does not matter at all.

What does matter is the entry for your Windows installation media, whether a USB flash drive (the preferred method) or optical disk, in the Boot order.

You should find an entry in the Boot order like this:?UEFI: <Installation Media Device Name>.

"Installation Media Device Name" is the name of whatever you are using as the installation media.

You will see another entry with the prefix AHCI.?Do NOT select the AHCI entry.?You MUST use the entry with the UEFI prefix.

Once you select the?UEFI?entry, save and exit if everything else is in order, and the Windows installation will begin. There is no need to format your PCIe SSD before the Windows installation. It is much better to allow the Windows Installation program to format your PCIe SSD. It will be GPT formatted and have an EFI System partition, and a Recovery partition.

Once Windows is installed on your PCIe AHCI or NVMe SSD, the entry in the Boot order list appear as "Windows Boot Loader" or "Windows Boot Loader: <SSD name>", depending upon the UEFI version used with your board.

If you are using a PCIe NVMe SSD (any Intel 750 SSD, and any DC P3500 SSD, Samsung 950 Pro SSD) don't forget to install the NVMe driver that the manufactures provide for their NVMe SSDs.

The Windows NVMe driver is known to have write performance issues, which I noticed when installing Windows 10 on a 950 Pro. That installation was much slower (five+ minutes) than installing Windows 10 on an AHCI SM951 (three minutes at most.)

It is the best practice with?ANY Windows installation to only have the target OS drive powered on during the Windows installation. That is true and recommended in this case as well. If you are using an optical drive, that of course may be powered on and won't cause any problem.

NOTE:?PCIe?NVMe?SSDs will NOT be listed in the Storage Configuration screen in the UEFI.?They will be shown in the System Browser tool in the UEFI, and of course will be shown in Windows like any other drive.
