I have an HP Phoenix 860-160se and attempted to install an NVMe SSD drive (Samsung 960 EVO M.2) into the M.2 slot to make my boot drive. I did a drive image copy using the Samsung utilities to the new drive and attempted to boot off the new NVMe SSD, but this system refuses to recognize the new drive as a bootable drive. Further, the BIOS never shows the drive, but Windows 10 sees it after boot. More system specs:
Product Number: N0X16AV#ABA
System board: 2B3A 1.04
Processor: Intel Core i7-5960X CPU @ 3.00GHz
Steps I've tried:
1. Using the system restore USB drive I created when I received the PC - boots up into a blue screen then the system shuts down completely.
2. Unplugging all other drives from the system.
3. Disabling SATA 0 and 1
4. Disable Secure Boot
5. Disable Fast Boot
Nothing seems to help. Does this board have the ability to boot off the NVMe drive?
