Asus Maximus VI Formula With Ssd M.2 Samsung 960 Evo 250gb Nvme

Hi guys. How are you? I want to buy a new SSD and I am thinking about the Samsung 960 Evo, but reading some topics here I have a question. Does my mother board Asus Maximus VI Formula support this SSD with a PCI-E adapter? Can I boot the OS? With the pci-e adapter can I have all the 3200 Mbps read?
Thanks.

Here's the website that o used to solve the problem. In my case someone in the forum posted a bios versions for the Maximus vi formula with the nvme driver.*
It's now working 100%.
Hope this could help you.

Any chance of getting the bios you got from a forum member?

Hi guys.
Sorry to refresh this Topic, but i got an issue and i don't know how to fix it:

Im using a Asus Maximus VI Formula with BIOS Version 1603

I also planning to integrate a NVMe in PCIe with OS.

- I followed all steps (https://www.win-raid.com/t871f50-Guide-How-to-get-full-NVMe-support-for-all-Systems-with-an-AMI-UEFI...)

But whenever i try to flash the bios using EZ Flash 2 in BIOS-Mode i get the error message: "Security verification failed" 😞

I also tried both methodes (UEFI TOOL & AMI's Aptio UEFI MMTool) to insert the nvme module, but both led to the same result " Security verification failed".

But EZ Flash 2 accepts the original Bios-File Ver.1603, so it cant be a compability issue..

(P.S. Non-native Speaker :D)

Greetings

Edit: Fixed it using USB BIOS Flashback

Just wanted to report that I have used the Plextor NvME pcie drive with zero issues, full speed, no special drivers, if you are interested. I also have one for sale because I went back to SLI cards and needed the lanes.

Setting it up and cloning was pretty easy, but it requires that the old system disk did run with full UEFI

1.
Open the latest BIOS with UEFITool and place the NvmExpressDxE_2.ffs after the last DxE driver in BIOS
2.
Save it as M6F.CAP to a FAT32 formated USB drive.
3.
Use ASUS ROG BIOS Flashback to load it.

4.
Plug the card into a free PCI-E 3 X16 slot.
Graphic card will go X8 but can't see any difference in performance with a single card.
5.
Enter the BIOS and configurate it.
Boot to Windows and install the NVMe controller driver that can be found on the manufacturers support and download site .
6.
Clone the old system HDD/SSD to the NVMe drive and shut down the system after it is done
7. Unplug the old drive and boot with the new one, it will show up under boot options in BIOS.

Hi, I have the Maximus VI Formula. Can any of you confirm that the Samsung 960 EVO worked for you as PCIe NVMe to install and boot Windows 10 on? Which PCIe card did you use? The HYPER M.2 X4 MINI CARD is not officially supported on Z87. Thanks ❤️

I see no one answered you and I can't seem to get answers here either. I'm asking the same question all over the place and can not seem to get a solid answer. I'm looking at the below SSD and want to know if it will work or not for my Maximus VI Formula. I know there is a little M.2 card slot on the board but what works with it? There are too many types now it seems and all seem the same to me. I don't want to waste my time and shipping back a drive that is not compatible. Please verify this link will work if you managed to get an Nvme SSD to function normally without guru implementation. Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.

Yeah. I used this version of bios compiled with the nvme module and worked fine. I used the nvme ssd with a pci adapter.*
