I have purchased Windows 8 Pro in October 2012 (at its launch) and haven't installed it until now.
I have just built a custom PC with an Intel 600p SSD (which is recognized in the UEFI along with every other component), but it isn't recognized by the Windows 8 installer. There are multiple solutions for Windows 7, but I am not sure if they work on a Windows 8 installation.
So my question is, can I apply the hotfixes designed for Windows 7 on my Windows 8 installation?
By the way, I plan to upgrade to Windows 8.1 and then maybe Windows 10 later on.
Thanks for sharing your situation and fix. Basically, the Intel® SSD 600p series only works with operating systems that come with native NVMe* drivers, reason why it does not work on Windows* 8.
