    How to install Intel 750 SSD as bootable drive for windows 10 x64


      Intel ssd 750 series not booting on asus maximus VIII z170 chipset.


      I have an Intel SSD 750 series add-in-card and I want to use as my main/boot drive.

      The issue is that when I hit the power button, the mobo do not boot from the SSD, it just show the Q-CODE 41. However if I go directly to the UEFI boot menu and manually select the drive to boot from it works, windows 10 loads normally and I can use.

      I searched around the mobo should support the SDD.

      I have tried the following:
      - Disable and enable CMS compatiblity.
      - Disable and enbale secure boot.
      - Install the intel NVMe drivers.
      - Adjust the boot priority.
      - Disable and enable fast boot.

      - tried the instructions here > Getting Intel 750 SSD to install and boot Windows 7 on z170 motherboard

      Is there a Bios setting I am missing for my board? Is it the OS?  Can someone please help?

      System Build:
      Asus MAXIMUS VIII GENE Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
      i7 6700k
