WES7 & M.2 NVMe SSD

    Question

  • Hardware:

    Asus H110M-A

    I7-6700

    4Gb RAM

    M.2 128Gb Intel 600p

    OS:

    Windows WES 7 64 bit

    I've installed Microsoft WES 7 on SATA drive, while the 600p is connected, with all drivers package. 

    But the 600p is not recognized (in "Computer" screen)

    With standard Windows 7 SP1 (an also with Windows 7 SP1 for Embedded system) I had the same problem but after applying Microsoft hot fix 22990941

    The 600p has been recognized in the system. 

    I've applied the same hotfix in WES 7, but the problem remains with the WES.

    Any ideas? 

    Thanks,

    Moshe.

  • Were there any Windows 7 drivers that came with the Intel M.2 drive? M.2 support wasn't built in until either Windows 8.1 or 10.

  • Thanks Sean,

    Microsoft has a hotfix for Windows 7 which work fine, but the same hotfix doesn't work in WES7... I thought maybe there some work around.

    I'll appreciate any ideas,

    Thanks,

    Moshe.

  • I also met the same problem.   KB2990941 and KB3087873 work fine in Windows 7, but they are not work in Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES 7) with some NVMe PCIe device. 

    I use Kingston NVMe PCIe SSD (not NVMe SATA device).  I cannot make it work with WES7.  I already install 2 KB and windows update to 2019/1.   It still shows "unknow PCI devices" in devie manager. 

    Anyone has any idea?
