I received a computer with windows 10 family and I want to install win10 pro. So I format on DOS only now when I want to install win10 with a bootable key, while installing I don't see the Nvme hard drive.
He's asking me for a pilot for the nvme kioxia.
Do I need to update the bios or do I have a driver for the nvme?

See if this works...
W10 does not have the storage controller drivers needed to see the drive on notebooks with the Intel 11th gen core processors.
You need to add the storage drivers during the W10 installation...
See the info at the link below.
Here is the link to the driver you need...
This package contains the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver for the supported notebook models and operating systems. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology is designed to provide functionality for the Intel Storage Controllers. The driver improves Serial ATA (SATA) disk performance with Native Command Queuing.
There is another thing I don't understand in that document, and that is where HP tells you to right click on the Intel driver file and select Extract to
When I ran through the steps, I don't get an Extract to option when I right click on the file.
So, if you have the same issue, download and install the free 7-zip file utility from the link below.
The 2nd file at the top of the page is for 64 bit.
Then you can right click on the exe file, select 7-Zip from the menu, and select Extract to: and let it extract the file into its folder name (sp111660), and copy that folder to your USB flash drive, and continue with the instructions.

You're very welcome.
The reason for that is because the W10 Home product key in the BIOS trumps every other product key, so when you try to clean install W10 Pro, you get W10 Home every time because it doesn't ask for a product key.
So, the only way you can upgrade to W10 Pro if you have a W10 Pro product key is to do this...
Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & Security > Activation .
Select Change product key, and then enter the 25-character Windows 10 Pro product key.
Select Next to start the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.

Yes...here is the link to the driver page for your notebook's model series...
Looks like BIOS version F.09 is the latest one.
