I used Acronis but with the same result. A decision has been taken to abandon the attempt to use the addlink SSD and use a (more expensive) Samsung drive.


Thanks for all the suggestions S1W1.

Finally solved my problem. This is what worked for me…

Bought a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2Tb NVMe SSD

Installed Samsung’s latest NVMe drivers version 3.2 (.exe file)

No joy following cloning.

Found this site with “unpacked” Samsung drivers Forum - Recommended AHCI/RAID and NVMe Drivers

Copied drivers to W7 recovery flash drive

Created Windows system image

Booted from recovery drive and selected “repair my computer”

Installed Samsung drivers from flash drive

Installed system image

4 hours later laptop booted from the copied system image.

I went through ASUS support and all they did was have me do the driver install dance (which I already had everything updated). ADATA was more closer, gave me google links to NVMe drivers, but I had already found them.



My big question is why can't these drivers be hosted at their sites? I assume MS doesn't want them too.



Anyway, thanks again dude, much appreciated!


(this driver scavenger hunt reminded of the old days)

A little more please

[QUOTE=SIW2;3426375]It depends what you mean by post install.

If you already have win7 installed on a regular disk and wish to add an nvme device to your machine, then you can just integrate the msu files into the already installed win7 so that it can see the nvme drive.

Registered for your file for x64 W7Pro, MS had the hotfix pulled way early. My question is how to apply this into the running system for later addition of NVMe drive? Have new WD SSDs that don't show up in WDs SSD dashboard because the NVME driver isn't on the machine.

They are .msu ( microsoft standalone update ) files. Just click on them as with any .msu file, and they will install.

I have just clicked on the first one and it tells me ( correctly) that it is already installed.
