I bought an HP OMEN by HP Laptop 15-dc0xxx
Installed Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Bought a new Samsung SSD 960 Evo for m.2 slot and installed it
Went into device manager, formated the ssd and i can see it and open it and write into it , etc.
My Problem is that i want to migrate my windows 10 from the 1tb hard (the factory one) to my new SSD 960 EVO
I installed the driver for the 960 Evo after that i installed the Samsung Magician ( and here is where i saw it all was going to go wront)
After i installed Samsung Magician and opened it , i saw this message " this drive is not supported " and bello on AHCI MODE : Deactivated ( and showing only my 1tb hard drive )
Trim status : enabled
Interface SATA 6.0 GB/s
why can t i see my ssd in samsung magician?
Second of all i installed my data migration tool from samsung site, still it doesn t see my SSD ...
Please help me with a guide to install and run windows 10 from my SSD
Note: i have a bootable windows 10 stick and i alwready try to install windows on the partition of the ssd , but when instalation was finished i got a blue screen that sayd "missing files can t load windows"
After that i deleted partitions and installed windows 10 to the hard drive and it worked..
I read ALL and i mean ALL tutorials on this , but from all topics i understand that
1. Can t change in BIOS settings to AHCI mode
2. Samsung Magician wont see the SSD as is not connected directly to the motherboard
3. AHCI mode is factoryset to some HP models as it is consumer bla bla bla..
BUT THERE MUST BE A WAY to have windows on an m.2 ssd 960 EVO samsung , NO?
i bought it for nothing?
Spent 12 hours of my life to figure this out!

What is your dc0xxx ? My Omen dc0071tx has
Please try newer 970 EVO series. The one on my machine is Samsung MZVLW256HEHP-000H1 which is not the top

Managed to migrate windows 10 from 1tb HDD 7200Rpm to the M.2 NVMe SSD Samsung 960 Evo using MiniTool Partition Wizard application
After you migrate you need to open MiniTool Partition Wizard and delete the 1tb HDD 7200Rpm from disk drives and them restart.
After that windows will run from the SSD !
After 2 days of reading topics i 've managed to do it myself
Have a good day!
