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