    As @seeker_moc suggested try loading BIOS defaults and try again with booting.

    The disk should already be formatted if you have placed windows on it.

    If it's currently blank/uninitialized, then it shouldn't matter. Windows should format the disk during install. If it's not showing up, then you can try to make it GPT to see if it makes a difference. It shouldn't, but you never know with these things. If it's currently MBR, then you will have to repartition it, as I think NVMe will only boot from a GPT disk.

    That is right, only in gpt will windows start the installation process. I am just a little sceptical about starting again because I tried every setting I could think of earlier then I installed the prima mod and it still wouldn't work. From what I have read online don't they need a bios update so that you can select nvme as the bootable system rather than ahci or raid?

    The ACHI/raid option should be left the same as it was in the installation, it goes on top of any boot device you select and applies to any kind of disk in the system.

    Eg in mine I have a single SM961 (PCI-E NVME) I have mine running in AHCI mode. If I went into raid mode (to say add a second disk and stripe them) I would install in RAID mode (or migrate it).

    Clevo keyboards are known to be ****... The Asus/MSI keyboards are so much better! I love the Asus ones especially.. Its because Clevo use the same keyboard in literally all the models and its retarded that the 17" laptop uses the same 15" laptop keyboard which makes it so cramped!

    Did anyone manage to get 4k@60Hz through the Club3D adapter?
    I've got only HDMI 2.0 as input and a P651SE with only hdmi 1.4b to give :-/

    Are you on discrete only mode with the NVIDIA GPU only running? 970/980M do support HDMI 2.0
