Joined Jul 24, Messages 4, Win7 had NVMe drivers added later in its life cycle and are most likely not on your installation media.

I upgraded from Windows 8. The upgrade was very smooth except that W10 does not recognize my 2nd hard drive no issues with W8. I've read other discussions that the drive may show in DM and the fix is to simply change the drive letter, but DM only shows my primary drive as Disk 0 then my USB drives.
No 2nd hard drive. Is there a fix available? Or perhaps is it possible a service is not running which needs to be turned on? Any help is appreciated as I need to be able to access the data and documents on the 2nd drive. Method 1 : I suggest you to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter and check if it helps. Press Windows Key, then click on Search bar. Then click on View All on the left panel of the screen. Click on Hardware and Devices. Click on Next and follow the instructions.
Method 2 : I would suggest you to try to check for the status of the drive in the device manager. Expand Disk Drive. If you are able to find the driver for the external drive. Then again right click on the driver and click on Properties. Hope it helps.Forums New posts Search forums. New posts What's new Latest activity New profile posts.

JohnBarsotti Win User. Windows is not recognizing an NVMe M. JohnBarsotti, Jul 18, Any ideas? Gone are the days of simply wiping a disk and doing a fresh install.
My problem was that the Windows networking stack corrupted, and I was unable to launch wifi settings, and upon further investigation found that I couldn't even run an ipconfig command. Whatever your reason is, I'll save you the hours of frustration of trying to reinstall Windows on an NVME by telling you exactly how. Wiping an NVME is not as simple as one would hope. You can only modify it while booted into it. Windows 10 knows that there is already Windows on the drive, and will do everything possible to prevent you from nuking it.
I would recommend first trying the "Reset Windows" option, and even running "Startup Repair", but if all else fails, or if Windows is corrupted, read on. The reason resetting your system or restoring to a previous version may not work is if Windows 10 itself is corrupted. This is the complete nuclear option, the last resort to your Windows-related issues. Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any damage caused to your files, hardware, or software.
Following this advice is at your own risk. After downloading, open the tool. When prompted "What do you want to do? When given the option of either directly to a usb or to a. Depending on your specific motherboard, these settings might be different, or located elsewhere.
