Issues initializing Intel 750 PCI SSD on Asus WS motherboard

Jump to solution

Hello forum,

Yesterday I took my new Intel 750 PCI SSD and was able to get it working on my personal machine with the new Asus AZ170, and installed everything I needed on it (Windows 7 64bit and some VFX software). However when I put it inside my primary workstation as a boot drive, I can't seem to boot into it. It's an Asus Z10PE-D16 WS. It doesn't have the newer GUIs that the consumer motherboards do, and there is little documentation on this mobo.

This is my system for work so I really need to get this running, any ideas?

I set the CSM settings, enabled, UEFI only, PCI devices and boot devices, but still nothing.

Hello DrakeWelsh,

As I understand, your system based on the Asus* Z10PE-D16 WS does not boot using you new Intel® SSD 750 Series. Here are some important aspects I noticed based on your description of the issue:

- I am not sure I understood correctly, but, if you installed the OS using your Asus* Z170 motherboard, and then moved the drive to a different system, it is possible that the boot process will fail. You should do a clean install of the OS with the drive in the computer that will be used with it.

- We advise you to check with Asus about the settings required in the BIOS for your system to boot from a PCIe* NVMe* SSD. The document we have does not include motherboards with Z170 or C612 chipsets, however, you might want to review it and use for reference:

http://www.intel.com/support/ssdc/hpssd/sb/CS-035481.htm Intel® High Performance Solid-State Drives — Booting an NVMe* PCI Express* Solid State Drive

 

Before considering any further options, try the following actions as they may help in this case:

1. Contact the http://www.intel.com/support/oems.htm Computer Manufacturer Support to obtain and update the BIOS of your motherboard BIOS. Among the fixes for BIOS version 1202 you can find: 13. Support NVMe devices and 16. SupportsASUS Hyper Kit device.

3. Make sure to use the current version of the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23929/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Data-Center-Family-for-NVMe-... Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for NVMe Drivers (currently 1.3.0.1007).
