  2. Hi! Each bios mod prepared individually and based on your personal file backup of bios. You can post here your file backup of bios, or upload it into any fileserver and post the link. For creating backup of bios use attached utility. Extract attached archive directly on the Desktop and run utility as Administrator (right click mouse, choice "Run as Administrator"). Utility will create archive "results" directly on the Desktop. Post here this archive "results", or upload it into any fileserver and send me the link. https://files.fm/u/9nss8fe264

  3. Hi! Yes, with modified bios, your laptop should be support NVME SSD. But you will need to install a new Windows 10 on your NVMe disk. (not clone from old disk !!!). Important: The “BOOT” section of the UEFI BIOS and the shortcut to the “Bootable Devices” will not show the NVMe SSD, although it may be bootable! After having installed the NVMe supporting OS in UEFI mode onto the PCIe/M.2 connected SSD, you will see the new bootable system drive listed as “Windows Boot Manager”. Here are some advices about how to get Win10 properly installed onto an M.2 or PCIe connected NVMe SSD: Save the important data, which are currently on the NVMe SSD. Create an UEFI mode bootable USB Flash drive containing the desired Win10 image by using the latest version of the tool Rufus (important: choose the UEFI mode partition table = GPT). Here is a picture, which shows the most important Rufus settings: Rufus 3.17 Settings.png490×580 16.5 KB Important note: Usually the USB Flash Drive has to be FAT32 formatted to be bootable in UEFI mode, but this file system cannot be created, if any file within the ISO file (e.g. the install.wim) is bigger sized than 4 GB. In this case the tool Rufus will automatically format the USB Flash Drive by using the NTFS file system, but nevertheless makes it possible to boot the USB Flash Drive in UEFI mode (provided, that the “Secure Boot” option within the BIOS has been set to “Disabled”). Enter the BIOS and navigate to the “BOOT” section and - if applicable - the “SECURITY” or “Keys” section. Make sure, that the “Secure Boot” and “Fast Boot” options are disabled. The “Compatibility Support Module” (CSM) can either be set to “Disabled” as well (better option, but requires full UEFI compatibility of the graphics adapter) or to “Enabled” with the ability/preference to load EFI BIOS modules for the Storage Disk Drives. If you see BIOS options for the “OS type”, choose “other OS”. This will disable the Secure Boot setting. Tip to avoid SATA/NVMe interferences during the OS installation: It is recommended to temporarily unplug all SATA connected devices and additionally to disable the on-board SATA Controller(s) within the “Storage Configuration” section of the BIOS before starting the OS installation. These measures of precaution can/should be reversed once the OS installation onto the NVMe SSD has been successfully completed. Insert the prepared USB Flash drive and boot off it in UEFI mode (the related bootable USB drive should be shown by the Boot Manager with the prefix “[UEFI]”). When you come to the point, where you have to decide onto which Drive and which partition the OS shall be installed, delete all existing partitions from your NVME supporting SSD. After having done that, let the Win10 Setup create a new partition for your future drive C: on the related SSD. Then point to this just created partition as the desired future OS location. The rest should be done by the Setup automatically. You will get a message, that some additional partitions have to be created. Accept that and follow the advice of the Setup where to install the OS. Once the OS is up and running, shut down the computer, remove the bootable USB Flash driver and reconnect all your previously used storage drives. Before you restart your computer, make sure, that the NVMe SSD resp. its listed “Windows Boot Manager” is on top of the bootable storage drives.
