    I select Custom, and when it proceeds to the next page, "Where do you want to install Windows?", the message appears "We couldn't find any drives. To get a storage driver, click Load driver." Then, when I do that the next page says to insert the installation media containing the driver.
    So you need to install mass storage drivers.

    Dell XPS Notebook Reimage "How-To" Guide:

    Select Load driver.
    Press "browse" to find IRST driver file (iastorAC.inf) and load it.

    Unit will detect the NVME SSD and then follow step by step to finish Win10 OS installation.

    After completing the OS installation, insert the Dell RDVD.
    Select the IRST driver and follow the installation procedure.

    Note: the latest IRST driver can also be obtained from under the "SATA Drivers" section.

    Thanks, gents. I needed to install that Intel Rapid Storage driver. Once I did, installing 10 was a breeze.
