I have 3 Asus motherboards, both Maximus codes can do this, both which are lesser boards.

This is a basic thing, I wouldn't doubt this capability. If this doesn't work there is something wrong with your board.

I only doubted because a few x399 boards I'm looking at make it a point to specify (os bootable from nvme).
Which gives the impression that other boards that don't mention this, don't have this feature.

so installed Windows on my nvme and if I try to boot to the nvme directly it doesn't work.

But there is an option for Windows boot manager that takes me to Windows on my nvme

hey man i have a regular zeneth extreme and i got my nvme drive working as the boot drive. the easiest way i found to do it was to have it be the only drive connected to the board and then install the OS on it. once its installed go to the bios and select that drive to be your primary boot drive. then after that, connect all your other drives, and you shouldnt have a problem. in my set up i have 4 ssd drives, and 4 nvme drives and they all work great.
