UPDATE 2016-03-31 – Leo has finally gotten the NVME m.2 ssd recognized.
<~Leo> I was fooled by all the people who were complaining about issues with the m2 and the z170
<~Leo> turned out it was just that the ssd wasn’t completely in
<~Leo> I installed it wrong
Tension builds as Leo,
Karsten Jerry and the hated chatroom attempt the impossible. Something that 12-year-olds 9-year-olds
“Can we use either USB connector?”
“It’s DUAL CHANNEL USB”
“What is the LITTLE ONE for?”
“It sucked it right in” Leo referring to a cable? Or a hard drive? Or maybe a close personal friend.
“Which one is the boot drive?”
“How tight do I need to make this” Leo says as he reefs down the cpu cooler screws.
“The Arctic Silver is already on it” No it’s not Arctic Silver. Conductive pad. But that’s only tech talk.
“Is there a hole?” Leo looking for standoff hole.
“Is it spinning?” Leo stripping threads in case
“Is it important to glue fans to the hard drives” Leo feeling that renowned system builder Steve Gibson is one-upping him.
There was much discussion about how to connect fan connectors to the motherboard. The verbatim will have to wait.
“Time for the cooker” Leo trying to confuse us.
“I guess they didn’t think I would try to put such a big thing in there” Leo talking about what we know not. And as we have photographic evidence that it’s not very big we are really confused.
“Not as good as the 69 club” We all want in to that club.
“You can see the hole. And you can see all the metal filings” Leo wondering why cross threaded screws are bad.
“A massively flatulent GUI” Leo Laporte referring to Windows. Poor Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley.
“I forgot there’s USB on the front to. That should work.”
Tension builds as the moment approaches. BOOT TIME!
“00 means it’s not getting power”
“Where is that cable?”
“There’s two connectors for the cpu?”
Ok, power now connected to motherboard. One more time!
Installing Windows on the Samsung NVME drive will be left as an exercise for the reader. Or a future call for help?
