Have a new Z240 Workstation with a Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 nVMe SSD.
Windows 10 will install to the SSD from USB no problem but the machine fails to find the OS post install.
The Samsung 950 Pro SSD does not show up in the UEFI section of the BIOS, but it does show up under Legacy devices.
Secure Boot is not enabled.
If I add a SATA HDD, Windows Boot Manager gets installed on the SATA device and the machine will then boot Windows 10 from SSD.
How do I get the machine to boot from SSD without having to have a SATA HDD installed?
I've updated the BIOS from 01.11 to 01.21 with no change in the above.

I have Windows 10 booting via NVME on a Samsung 950 Pro.
BIOS version: N51 Ver. 01.21 03/02/2016
I beleive I am using BIOS defaults.
Option ROM Launch Policy is set to "ALL UEFI"
I don't see the Samsung M.2 950 Pro in the BIOS boot menu device list but it boots nicely into Windows 10.
The M.2 950 Pro is the only storage device in the PC
Model of the PC is: HP Z240 Tower Workstation
SKU is: L9K19UT#ABA (I am in Canada)
Perhaps its simply fixed in this version of the BIOS
