I'd like to stay with Win 7 if possible.

Also what bios would I need for that drive?


Thanks in advance,

Darlene

you may request a hotfix which adds limited NVMe Support to Windows 7.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941

Limited because you will not be able to update any NVMe SSD firmware under that OS.



Yea, I saw that and the issues it can bring with it . . .

Samsung has an NVMe driver for the 950, and the latest versions of Magician and their migration software embrace the new 950 as well.

It looks like the best shot at getting it to work with Win7 would be to load 7 on a regular sata drive, install the Sammy NVMe driver so it sees the 950, install their migration software, and then migrate it to the 950.

All, no doubt, easier said than done . . . . biggrin.gif

This driver works for the SM951 nvme drive, I suppose it will work for the 950 pro to install Win 7, then you could install the 950 pro driver

Hey all! I am going to be upgrading hardware very soon. Going from AMD to Intel. I ran across this board in my searches, but can't find it anywhere for purchase. Is this board not released yet? Anytime I try to search for it, all I can find is the Deluxe.

Good luck finding it. Doesn't show up at Newegg, TigerDirect, Amazon, PCpartpicker, etc. Let me know if you find it! biggrin.gif

Looks like new BIOS for ROG boards (Hero and Gene) is now available.

When the product page is updated you can use the compare tool.

Is bios 1102 for the VIII Hero not compatible with Windows 10?
