    Problem with Installing 600p ssd on Windows 7

    mikestone

      Hi,

      It is my intention to buy 2 x 512mb 600P M.2 drive for use on my small business system which runs on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

       

      I have been investigating if I can install the Windows 7 Boot system onto a Intel 512mb 600P M.2 drive without much sucess.

       

      I have noted that the Microsoft standard NVMe express drivers as per this page - "https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/kb/2990941" are not satisfactorly working or am I misinformed ??

       

      Do you have any information about this situation that would allow me to move forward.

       

      I note that on 21/10 there was a comment on this  site - "We will release a public document with the detailed instructions in the near future." - how is this going ???

       

      Regards

       

      Mike

            Hi,

            Thank you for your reply and information which I have read.

             

            Please note as I mentioned in my first Post - " It is my intention to buy 2 x 512mb 600P M.2 drive "  I will not order them until I am sure I can use them as

            the Boot System.

             

            Unfortunally I am under pressure on this matter and would not be happy buying an inferior product instead.

             

            So therefore I would like to hear any information on the Sucessful operation of the 600P under the Windows 7 operating system and exactly how it was set up.

             

            I look forward to your response

             

            Regards

              Hello Mikestone,

              We have received confirmation from other customers that were successful using this guide to install the operating system on the SSD 600p (Windows* 7).
              We also were successful installing Windows* 7 on our SSD 600p using the guide, we tested in 2 different systems (Asus* & Gigabyte* motherboards).

              Our recommendation is to check with the computer manufacturer first and make sure the motherboard you are going to use to install the SSDs is PCIe x4 NVMe* compatible.

              Any other question please let us know.

              Regards,
              NC
