    Something is definitely wrong. I’m running max settings with RTX on medium and DLSS on; getting min 70fps and max 144fps depending on the scene. Usually hovers in the 70-90 range.

    After installing the Samsung NVMExpress driver 3.0 my device manager says that my Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus is running on micro$h!ts driver.

    What gives?

    How do I fix this?

    Help!! The Evo came today. I cloned the hybrid drive (used samsungs tool. I know...mistake...) had issues with booting, so I disconnected the original and booted to the EVO. It booted to the Evo... everything worked fine. Really fast....

    I formatted the original drive, using windows quick format. I re installed the drive, booted and system went into the windows recovery/repair window. I finally used f12 and set the EVO as the boot. That worked...until i shut down and restarted. Right to recovery screen. Same deal, f12 and selected the evo. It goes to windows.

    Edit*
    I tried a full format on the hybrid...still goes to recovery screen.

    Any options? Besides a new OS install....

    Did you set the EVO as your boot device in the bios? I think your original drive is still set as the boot device.

    Make sure the installer and its files are NOT blocked. When you download a file from the internet Windows sets a Blocked Status on it automatically so often times installs aren't complete or buggy.

    To see how to unblock the file and to prevent this from happening so that you don't have to worry about unblocking each and every file you download, see the below thread.

    Also, if the driver came in a ZIP package, then you'll wanna redownload the ZIP package and unblock it before unzipping it otherwise every file that is about to get extracted will have a blocked status.

    "Are you sure you want to run this file?" [Yes or No]

    PS: Make sure you disable any Antivirus that you have before installing the driver then reboot when prompted,

    Tried that...it won't let me. When I use f2 The evo shows up on the first bios screen, but it is not in the the "boot select"section. System sees the drive, the only way I can boot to it using f12 then it shows up and can be selected. System will then boot to windows as the evo as c drive. .but when i restart....goes right to windows repair.

    Its maddening!

    Did you have the original drive still in the machine when you installed Windows on the new EVO?

    I cloned the orginal oem drive to the Evo using the samsung app. Then I formatted the orginal drive. If that counts as a windows install then yes.
