I am currently utilizing a 128 GB SSD which has been filled to the brim with windows updates thereby preventing me from upgrading to windows 10.
Consequently, I made the decision to buy a 1TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus, unaware that it was incompatible with the ASUS ROG G751JY.
I therefore stumbled upon this thread and therefore believed I found my saving grace.
I'd cloned my prior SSD with the windows 8.1OS and files over to the new SSD, alas I am currently still facing difficulties booting from the new SSD despite following the provided steps to MOD the BIOS in accepting NVMe SSDs.
The error which appears would be that windows would continuously attempt to diagnose the computer at boot up and end up being unable to find a solution before restarting in a continuous loop.
I was wondering if there were any BIOS settings which i should be particularly mindful of during the OS boot up?
Either that or would it be the case that I am to conduct a fresh windows installation on a empty drive? (I had attempted this with a windows 8.1 thumb drive but the installer states that the hardware is incompatible...)
Or would this be the case that windows 8.1 is entirely incompatible with this mod as well?
This is the first time that I am attempting to clone a OS drive and as such would like to seek any possible assistance in this matter.
Note: Utilized BIOS Ver 213 alongside the NvmExpressDxe_4 module in my installation of the mod.
Incase anybody is trying to update their BIOS first to bring it up to date to the latest 213 unmodified version and you either have a bad or dead battery - if you run into the blue warning screen which prevents you updating the BIOS without atleast 20% battery, try typing:
to get passed this blue screen. Took me hours to find this solution.
I've only managed to update my BIOS so far to the the standard/unmodified 213, and will purchase a M.2 drive later in the week.
