Hey i just installed a 1Tb 970 Evo plus on my 10700k/Asus z490 motherboard. For some reason I cant install the Samsung Nvme driver. I keep getting a
Samsung NVM Express Device is not connected. Connect the device and try again. Any ideas on what's going on and why I cant install the driver?

Got it sorted out. Turned off Intel Rapid Storage in bios and reinstalled Os.
Next time, you can switch from RAID to AHCI without formatting:

1. Run MSCONFIG
2. Enable Safe Boot (minimal)
3. Reboot into UEFI/BIOS and change to AHCI
4. Boot up into safe mode
5. Run MSCONFIG and disable Safe Boot.
6. Reboot
