Hi JJ123,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can try to disable secure boot under security tab in the BIOS.

Save and exit and check if the option is available.

 

Else you can change Boot mode to Legacy/EFI from UEFI.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

Regards

Hi  

 

I have followed both your instructions to install windows 10 using a preloaded USB thumb disk. Again they all bring me to the same blank window where my SSD drive is not shown. It seems my SSD disk is not recognized without driver installation. There is an option to load driver beneath the blank window. However, I still cannot locate the driver for my SSD disk (NVMe SAMSUNG MZVLB512) through file browsing.

 

Any other suggestion?

Hi  

 

Yes, BIOS sees this SSD drive as NVMe SAMSUNG MZVLB512.
