I want a specific voltage to be maintained and not altered for any reason.

1) Q-Fan calibration is required to open up the fan setting range below 60%
2) The calibration routine logs the tach signals - when a splitter is used that sends multiple tach signals that are overlapped, it can cause the calibration routine to fail.
3) A single fan can be connected to the fan header and then the calibration routine run. The splitter should be connected afterwards. Ideally yes, the tach signal for only one fan should be connected to the board as there is slight variance between the speed of each fan at a given voltage.


That is all there is to it. You can do the above or use the 5V rail as you are doing now.

I have a Maximus VIII Gene board, updated to the 902 BIOS, where I'm trying to install Windows 10 Pro on a Samsung SM951.

I'm booting off a Win10 DVD connected to a USB port, and first time through the install, I got the dreaded "This drive does not support booting" message.

This surprised me as most have said Win10 installs are fairly smooth

In reading various threads, I noticed many recommend to not have any other SATA drives connected (I have a Seagate Hybrid connected to SATA3). Does this really make a major difference? I haven't had a chance to try that yet, as I had to leave for a business trip.

When I went into the BIOS Secure Erase function, it showed the SM951's status as "Frozen". What's the definition of this, and could this have something to do with it?

The drives will always show as frozen but the system will reboot and 'unfreeze' should you want to secure erase.

What I done to install win 10 on my SM951.

Unplugged everything except the nvme drive (I do this all the time with any os install)

Booted from the Win10 usb I made using Rufus (Win usb media creation tool at the time didnt work for usb, would only let me make an iso, I believe its since been fixed)

**edit Make sure the isois created for UEFI Boot and make sure that boot device is selected in the BIOS.

At Windows install screen. Open command prompt, Shift F10
Type Diskpart
List Disk
Select Disk # (mostlikely 0)
Clean
Convert GPT
Exit
Close the Command Prompt window.
Click the "Next" button.
Click the "Install now" button.
Put in your product key and click the "Next" button. (If your doing a free upgrade then skip this step)
Accept the terms and click the "Next" button.
Choose "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)."
Click "New" and then click the "Apply" button. Four partitions should appear. Click the bottom partition.
Click the "OK" button and then click the "Next" button.
From then on follow the on screen instructions till you get to the desktop.
Note: If you can't boot after the install you need to make sure the boot is set to "Windows Boot Manager" in the UEFI. Also, important info.

(The above thanks to Sean, ala http://www.overclock.net/t/1240779/seans-windows-8-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds)



**edit

You could create a bootable USB drive using this http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install (Not sure by Windows 10 DVD you mean an optical drive connected via usb)

Also, bear in mind that there are 6 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 3.1 ports at the Gene's rear, no USB 2.0 ports there. See the "Installing an OS" section in the manual.

Windows 10 will install with usb 3.0 port.

That addresses USB keyboard/mouse issues. What about properly recognizing the drive in the first place if it's connected to a USB 3.0 port?

What?

It recognises the Drive. Installs from the drive. Recognises the mouse and keyboard. All from USB 3.0 with the windows 10 install.

Windows 10 has built in support for 3.0.

Windows 7 does not. Hence the need for the additional drivers for windows 7 install.

"It recognises the Drive."


So why is he getting that error if the BIOS is properly recognizing the drive?

I take it that its something to do with him Booting from a DVD drive plugged in via usb or something?

Forgot to mention to make sure the media is created for UEFI Boot and that drive is selected in BIOS.


I also wasnt referring the above to his issue, but Windows 10 install in general.
