    I do not look at Wikipedia and yes not everyone knows what a M2.2280 is.

    As for telling someone to not reply to your post gets your post forgotten and you on a person's block list.

    If you did not want help on here. Do not post or turn around and get mad at someone for posting to your question.

    Well, shoot.
    Actually that is incorrect. Windows 7 is not going to be automatically denied from being installed.

    There are plenty of units in Enterprise environment and personal use that can still be installed with the OEM version of 7.

    Chuck, you'll be fine. I checked your mobo of choice and it's matched with your M.2 SSD. It's PCIe x4 which is the minimum you need to run your M.2 at maximum speed of 2200+MBps.
    I replied to your PM about installing OS. Basically SSDs are meant as a boot drive for faster boot time of OSes and fast opening up of applications/programs. But now they're coming out in TBs too for storage purposes.

    As you have an upgraded Windows 10, I'm afraid you may not be able to transfer it to your new hardware and may need to get a new license/key.

    Enjoy!
    Thanks for the info, Robot! Just what I needed to know. :)

    Clearly I stepped out of line. I apologize for my previous post.

    My machine is X99 based and windows runs happily on an M.2 Samsung and install is easy, and Blindingly Rapid, gone are the days of nipping to the kettle while "Loading files" trips down happily. One you hit the OK them files are loaded and install is underway (Assuming install from a USB3)

    SSD Review is indeed a great resource. I talk to Les Tokar, the guy behind the site, and he's really plugged into what's going on with solid state storage stuff. He's in Taipei right now, in fact, attending CompuTex. You will find the NVMe SSD (I use a 512 GB Samsung 950 Pro as my boot drive in my latest PC build on an Asrock Z170 Extreme7+ motherboard) blazing fast and easy to use with Windows 10 (driver support is now baked into the UEFI/BIOS, even for RAID arrays of NVMe M.2 drives). Les Tokar wrote a story about setting everything up late last year, which is what gave me the inspiration and the information to do my own build of this stuff. Do feel free to turn to me (or to ask for help from him) if you hit any snags with your build.
