NVMe SSD Issues, don't boot after Windows 10 clean installation

HP Recommended
HP Omen 15-5010nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, please help, because i am already getting mad of this problem.

I've bought used HP Omen (15-5010nr. i7-4710hq, 860m 2gb, 8gb ddr3) without SSD and now trying to find any SSD drive that will compatible with this device.
Scenario is always the same:
If i press F9 - there is no SSD drive (both legacy and UEFI boot mode, secure boot disabled, but already tried with enabled too)
After clean installation from USB-drive (made in Windows Media Creation tool) there is no OS boot manager or something else that will "say" that SSD is visible in BIOS. 
I've booted from USB-HDD with installed WindowsToGo on it - there i can see my SSD, even can use it as well (read,write,copy etc), but i can't use it as native OS bootable device, because when i plugged out all USB drives - BIOS tells me that there is no bootable device. Hard drive scan (HP Bios utility) doesn't find any connected devices.

 

Since this notebook have only 1 slot for Hard Drive (and it is M2, omg) - i just can't use it as far as i want. 
Now i have Kingston A1000M8/240Gb drive that is fully compatible with HP Omen 15-5000 series notebooks.

 

Waiting for your answer and solutuion, thanks.

Thanks for the answer, but i've already found it )

 

The problem is in uncompatibility older Omens with NVMe SSD-drives. 
Tried Samsung PM951 and Kingston SA1000M8 (240 and 256gb) - not working at all.

Anyway i found the way how to make those guys working - booted from DUET bootloader and activate NVMe driver. But it is not good soluiton since you need always have a usb-flash with DUET-bootloader plugged-in :C

 

So, i just swapped NVMe Kingstion with SSD SATA Kingston = and all works fine without any troubles, but the speed... Speed is 2 times lower than NVMe. 

WAITING FOR FIX AND UPDATE BIOS THAT WILL BE SUPPORT NVMe DRIVES, HEWLETT-PACKARD GUYS!

Hi,

I would say that it is a compatibility issue with the SSD. These newer SSDs have known to give problems with older models which had the first PCIe drives on the market. I believe that series came with the Samsung PM951 so that is what I would try. Even the Samsung 970 has given compatibility issues with earlier generation Intel Core systems.

You could also use a slower modern SATA3 drive such as the Samsung 860 Evo which is bound to work.

 

Hope it helps,

David
