Product: HP Z240 Tower Workstation
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)
Samsung controller driver is installed, attempted install of SP81374 as I suspect the issue of not booting has to do with the firmware of the m.2 drive. Samsung MZVPW256HEGL-000H1 running firmware CXZ74H0Q. The command being run is DC_Toolkit_OEM_V1_1_5.exe -d 0:c -ND -a 1 -s 1 -p BXW75H0Q_NF_ENC.bin --force
The resulting error is:
[ERROR} Succeed to download the firmware image, but given firmware image is invalid
[ERROR] Error returned from the device
Currently installed firmware is CXZ74H0Q
As well tried to install via Samsung's ISO: Samsung_SSD_950_PRO_2B0QBXX7.iso
All to no avail. Hints, help or how to's would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advance!

first of a;;, your 961 series SSD is a OEM product and as a non retail product is not supported by the samsung magican program attempting to flasf firmware without fully knowing what you are doing is a good way to end up with a non working item
Next,...windows 7 does not suport nvme drives unless the nessary hotfix patches are installed, thes patches are not part of the normal windows updates they must be downloaded manually and installed into a existing windows or slipstreamed into a windows install disk
