    Unfortunately, as I said, I already tried the recommended KBs.... it still didn't work for me. I'll give it another go in the future though.

    No worries, no I hadn't heard of that one. I found one that had all the updates until May IIRC. I installed that and tried searching and it still sat for hours doing nothing.

    So, easier way is make a Windows 8 or 10 thumb drive. Then delete the contents and copy win 7 on there with the win 10 boot.wim and setup files copied from the win 10 resources folder over the ones for win 7. Make sure to have the driver for the nvme drive on the thumb drive. Integrate usb 3.0 drivers of necessary. Then load the driver when it asks and try to install.

    Would this write up (which is really well done) work as a Win10 guide for a new desktop build??

    you make it sound so easy. I can do this but if you can be a bit more clear on the process.

    I tried to do it with Nvlite and i put in the drivers but no luck on the boot.

    Are you integrating both Windows boot.wim and install.wim?
