Windows Installation on 970 EVO 1tb

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I just purchased a dell g7 15 which came with a 128gb nvme pcie 2280 m.2 ssd.

I also bought the 970 evo 1tb to replace the the ssd listed above. Just realized though that Windows 10 is on that old ssd. 

My question is, can I use a recovery drive (USB) to transfer Windows on to the samsung 970?

I did the same thing and everything transfered okay but my computer won't boot from the 970. I installed the image on a conventional HDD and it booted fine and while in that install of WIndows 10 I can see and use the 970. I can't see the 970 in BIOS either.

This sounds very close to the issue I am having. @useraQzTZl36IR were you ever able to get it to boot from the 970?

No. My motherboard is too old to use this drive as a bootable drive. I now use it for storage only. I bought a SATA SSD to use as my boot drive.
