Samsung PCIe Nvme hhhl Pm1765a 1.6tb on Z820

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a samsung nvme (oem Dell) and i would like to know if it is possible to use it on my z820 workstation. I don't need it to install windows (for windows booting). I can do the installation and it is recognized by the windows 10 disk manager, but when I create the partition I get messages that the drive has not been initialized. What should I do? What would be the right driver for pm1725a?

@FCoutinho , welcome to the forum.


It is very difficult to know if a Dell SSD will be compatible with a HP motherboard.  HP has their motherboards made their specifications and are not necessarily the same as a retail board.  I believe the Dell SSD may be manufactured by Samsung.


Here is the information for your Dell SSD:


The driver and Firmware are included in the information.  It don't believe that it will damage the motherboard or SSD if you install it and it doesn't work.  I suggest that you contact Dell's Customer Support to see if they can give you more information.


Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the Workstation:
