    Hi there, please can you help, I have an Asus Maximus 7 hero Z97 motherboard which doesn't have m.2 slots so I bought this adapater from overclockers and this m.2 SSD:

    970 EVO POLARIS 500GB M.2 2280 PCI-E 3.0 X4 NVME SOLID STATE DRIVE

    KRYOM.2 PCIE 3.0 X4 ADAPTER FOR M.2 NGFF PCIE SSD, M-KEY WITH PASSIVE HEATSINK

    https://www.overclockers.co.uk/aqua...sd-m-key-with-passive-heatsink-cc-000-aq.html

    I installed the M.2 into the adapater and installed that into my motherboard PCI express lane and then booted up into windows 10 installation DVD but windows said that the OS can't be installed on this drive, it says
    Thanks in advance.

    Try a BIOS update, failing that it probably won’t work I’m afraid.
