So i just managed to make my old Rampage IV Extreme detect and work with M.2.
The way i did it was to follow this guide and mod my bios ([Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all Systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS) I got everything working, could even boot and install Win10 on it.
The problem is that the bios and OS detect the drive as a Samsung SSD 960 EVO 250GB (picture 1) even though i have a Samsung SSD 960 PRO 1TB (picture 2).
I’m not able to test the drive on another machine since i don’t have any other with m.2.
I have tested the adapter on every available PCI express slot, all with the same result.
Only the graphic card is connected, removed all other PCI devices.
Didn’t make a firmware upgrade on the SSD and not planning to, afraid it might break the device if it is a detection problem.
Might it be a recognition problem from the system or have I been scammed?
What I’m using:
Rampage IV Extreme
Asus Hyper m.2 x4 Mini
