    I set mine to Legacy & UEFI and could boot to either or back in my experimental days.

    I would create the installer again using the MCT.

    And when you did see the M.2 was it all unallocted space ?

    @Ghot thanks for the support.

    Hitting F8 and choosing UEFI USB --> usual windows install startup then fail because no drive is found
    Hitting F8 and choosing USB --> black screen.... nothing happen. Had to reboot.

    My USB Windows install drive is supposed to be UEFI only and not BIOS+UEFI as per rufus tool setup.

    Recall of the BIOS boot parameters

    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM Enabled
    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot Device Control UEFI and Legacy OPROM
    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot from Network DevicesIgnore
    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot from Storage Devices: UEFI only
    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot from Storage Devices: UEFI only
    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot from PCI-E/PCI ED: UEFI only
    BOOT>Secure Boot>Secure Boot state: Setup
    BOOT>Secure Boot>OS Type: Other OS
    BOOT>Secure Boot>Key Management: Install Default SBK
    BOOT>Secure Boot>Key Management: Clear SBKs

    Here is the OP's motherboard Manual, unfortunately they left out a lot of the BIOS settings.

    The bios see my M2 drive, windows installer never succeed to.
    The bios always see it as a storage device. Bootable or not depending on bios boot setting.
    The M2 drive is brand new and unformatted.

    @3080FE
    Set the BIOS like this...

    BOOT>CSM>Launch CSM>Boot Device Control UEFI and Legacy OPROM

    Remake the USB installer using the MCT tool, Option One, here...

    You could try to work around the problem of the USB flash drive disappearing, by using Ventoy in Memdisk Mode to boot into a normal WinPE ISO file. For that to work, you will need to let Ventoy format the flash drive such that Ventoy will then intall itself on it─before you can copy the bootable ISO file onto the flash drive.
    memdisk . Ventoy
    If you can boot into the WinPE like that, then you should be able to format your NVMe SSD as a GPT disk. After that, it should be possible to use Ventoy in normal mode, to boot into the Windows 10 Installation ISO─if you have copied this ISO file onto the same USB flash drive also.

    I' remember installing Windows 3.1 with a dozen of 3.5 floppy disks... things improved but the one click install is not yet existing.

    I remember 3.1 as well. I remember MS-DOS.
    But I think XP had it right. Just make it 64 bits, and give it Win 10's driver store and it'd sell like hotcakes.
