    I used a Intel M.2 in the top slot and a Crucial M.2 in the bottom slot ( working now fine )
    Did have to reload a driver and reset a few Bios setting 
    May have been operator error , the older Bios or doing my original  setup with Windows 10 on a normal non-SSD disk
     
    Windows 10 still wants to eject my Bottom M.2 SSD in Safely remove hardware and eject media tool bar.

    Seems like z270 and greater MBs should have all relevant material to just plug and start. I recently built a friends system with a MSI xpower z270....didnt have to do anything, samsung m.2 recognized and had it booting up windows in no time. Had to make one simple bios change and done.

    I bit. Just ordered the MB. EVGA is always so great about everything including customer service so I will deal with correcting any idiosyncratic things I come across. I am just using the 1 NVMe drive and once up and running I will add a backup/storage drive to the system.

    You just have to set a few things in the bios to turn it on, i have the classified and to set it to enable which turns off the u.2. The bottom one turn off two sata ports and one or two pcie x1 ports. The only other thing to do is in the boot section is make sure it set as the boot drive, the manual has all the steps to do it.

    When you install windows to the NVMe drive this creates the Windows Boot Manager. So after you do this you need to go into the BIOs and make absolutely sure the 1st boot device is the Windows Boot Manager.

    I've read the manual....thanks for the info though. After reading the manual i assumed thats what it was telling me. MB should be delivered today and i can do build tonight. It has been about 4 years since my last build so its time to update most definitely. Current system is more than starting to show its age. Thanks for the info guys....appreciate it
