Clean install Windows 11 Pro on F15 FX507 (i9-13900h)

Hi all,

Just received my F15-FX507 and immediately wanted to wipe the OS disk and install 11 Pro or Enterprise (I have keys for both). I went to Microsoft and created a new W11 bootable media USB stick. Popped it into the laptop and booted to it.

Hmm... no internal disk visible.

Went to Asus website, downloaded the Intel RST driver, used the extract option, loaded the driver in the setup process..Voila! I can see the internal drive. Loaded diskpart, cleaned the disk, installed W11, rebooted.

BSOD...Inaccessible boot device.

I can't figure out why the loaded driver during the setup process wasn't added. Now I am restoring it via cloud recovery, but looking to see if anyone has done a clean install on one of these yet? I know it's possible to inject drivers into the WinPE setup image, but I haven't done that personally.

Thanks!

Hi, 

I had some issues with Intel VMD and IRST drivers.

I advise you to disable Intel VMD in the Bios and do a new fresh installation of Windows. Your SSD will be displayed without installing IRST drivers and everything should work fine.

You can also do it without reinstalling Windows by following this page.

On the other hand, if you update the BIOS or restore the default BIOS settings, do not forget to disable VMD. Otherwise Windows will not start.
