    Mine is a SM951 128GB M.2 AHCI SSD, MZ-HPV128HDGM version, just a little different from the SM951 NVMe MZ-VPVxxx0
    My SM951 128GB M.2 AHCI SSD, MZ-HPV128HDGM version shows up on device manager as Disk drives.

    NVMe drives don't use SATA, they use PCI express lanes, thus the above would not apply. Also, I'm 99.999.9 percent sure that if the laptop came with Windows 10 installed the BIOS is already set to AHCI (not that it matters).
    I have managed to install Samsung NVMe driver after switching from RST to AHCI in BIOS.

    That is good news.

    Don't you have to edit the register to AHCI before you change in BIOS?

    No, I have used System configuration to switch to Safe boot.

    Thanks sygnus21 for the information.
    I have a M.2 SM951 drive and I thought that a NVMe will be the same.
    But the procedure is the same to update the driver.
    You may have to rely on Microsoft drivers, I don't think Samsung provides drivers for OEM SSDs.

    There is a driver for my SM951 drive (for Win 7 and 10). No issues

    If you manage to find the drivers, well and good

    Yes I would but I don't have access to BIOS screen of his laptop and the link you posted has all the steps described, let us wait for his response.

    Yeah, I did some research and found that drive can simply use Windows' drivers - that is doesn't need the NVMe drivers.

    And yeah, my NVMe drives also show in disk manager as Disk Drives, but the actual driver for them show under Storage Controllers.
