  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

    Yes. There are some requirements to do.

    1. PCIe NVMe storage-capable hardware motherboard support for the form factor of the SSD (i.e. PCIe, M.2, U.2). Consult your system or motherboard vendor for more information.

    2. System BIOS that supports UEFI 2.3.1 or later with NVMe support.

    3. Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows 10 OS( Other OS supporting these requirements may function properly, but we have not validated them yet).

    For more information, please refer to the following link which may help:

  • I am developing a Win NVMe driver for NVMe SSD to work with Win 7 to Win 10 Operating system
    Query : To ensure that this driver works on all Motherboards in market. Should I qualify this on different motherboards? Do we need any such hardware compatibility tests

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    As far as I'm concerned, you should qualify this on different motherboards and you need some hardware compatibility tests.

  • You have mentioned as "some" can you define why it is required ?

    For performance tests we would need compatibility. Apart from that is there any reason to do compatibility on multiple hardware
