Hi, I recently purchased a Samsung 960 pro for my MSI Z170A Gaming M7 motherboard. I was able to install windows by using the Samsung data migration tool from my old SSD 951 Pro with a UEFI version of windows 10 pro. When I installed Samsung magician it showed the 951 as not supported, whatever but the 960 Pro doesn't show up at all? I thought maybe a firmware issue so I attempted to update the firmware but it did not detect any compatible drives. weird but ok I try to install the NVMe drivers, did not detect any compatible drivers again. I called Samsung support and all they would say is that the motherboard needs to be in ahci mode with UEFI???? that doesn't make any sense uefi doesn't work with ahci. I though maybe this is a lane issue so I removed all drive but my 960 pro still nothing. I put my 960 in the other slot still nothing. I saw someone say it was an issue with intels turbo drivers so I attempted to do a fresh install with and getting the drive to pull up with Samsung driver but it was not recognized as a valid driver. I saw something about installing it in safe mode so I tried installing the nvme driver in safe mode, still no compatible drives detected. I decided to settle for crystal disk becouse that always works right? nope it will not recognize the 960 either but it will see a third drive with gibberish lettering. I see it just fine in disk manager not sure what is going on. I am running out of ideas please help!!!
