Windows 7: Samsung 950PRO Can't install Windows 7

Samsung 950PRO Can't install Windows 7

I have just purchased the new samsung 950 Pro 256gb NVMe SSD M2.
I can't install windows 7 onto it.
My System is Asrock Z97Extreme6, 32gb Ram i7 CPU.
The Firmware on the m/b has been upgraded to the latest version.
I have a Copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 which has all the latest Updates Slipstreamed into it.
I've Tried 2 methods of install, one from usb flash drive and one from DVD.
That copy until now has worked Flawlessly with my previous hardware setup, that was with the 850 ssd.
That version still works on any other PC.
During the Install of windows it sees the 950 Pro and the Installation continues until the first reboot.
At this point it Freezes ( where the four colored windows swirl around ).
It appears that nothing I do can fix that problem, not even system repair.
However I have One Version of Windows that will work, that is Windows 7 Pro OEM x64 on DVD, Original Microsoft .
Can anyone help.

So if you have a dvd that will work, what`s the problem ?

If you want a dvd with Service Pack 1 then download it from here.

Your dvd of Ultimate is more then likely counterfeit, there is no reason to slipstream updates into the installer.

The problem is the dvd I have although it is only 6 months and has service pack 1, when the installation finishes it requires hundreds of updates which is about 1.2gb.
Now the Pirate Copy as I said works and best of all I can run it from a usb flash drive which is faster than a dvd, and when it finishes it only requires a handful of updates, but for some reason it wont work with the 950pro.
And if I try and Load the Samsung NVMe Drivers during install it Freezes

Big deal it needs updates, welcome to the club.

Please ditch the bogus Windows Ultimate or we can`t help you anymore.

If you`re interested let me know, I`ll PM you a list of updates not to install, 5 to 10 of them pertain to windows 10, and the rest are useless updates not needed.

Once you have Pro installed and properly activated, we`ll be glad to help you with anything.

And please have your update settings configured like this.
