I am having trouble installing Windows 10 (PRO) on my Intel 750 Series 1.2TB SSD. -- I could install it correctly on my HDD

Sometimes it gets recognized as a boot drive in my Motherboard BIOS, but sometimes it doesn't ( 😕 )

Do you guys have any idea?

Hello cortex,

Booting from the Intel® SSD 750 Series is different than booting from SATA drives since the 750 is an NVMe PCIe device, you also need additional configuration if you are using the Asus* Hyperkit.

- We strongly recommend that you contact the Computer Manufacturer Support and make sure you are using the latest BIOS for your motherboard.

- Please review the following article from Asus for information from them:
