    The BIOS won't recognize it (or any other NVMe device) as an "ssd" on the SATA screens because it isn't a SATA device. Seems odd - but you won't see it.

    SM Boot will only recognize an NVMe device IF the boot option is set to UEFI-only AND the device has a UEFI boot block installed (which it will after you install a bootable OS). There is no legacy boot option for NVMe devices in SMs BIOS (anymore...there was in the 1.0 BIOS for this board but it was broken and removed from 1.1 forward).

    So - to get it to work - set the boot options to UEFI only, boot from your installation media, install your OS on the NVMe device, reboot to BIOS and you should be able to select the device in the UEFI boot options.

    I've done this with at least two other X11SSH-family boards (X11SSH-f and X11SSH-tf). It should work with your -LN4F board too.

    Correct - BIOS does not not need to be changed for use - your OS will recognize it if it supports NVMe.

    But in order to boot from it you need to follow the steps above (UEFI only, etc).

    Stuck at the end of the BIOS checks showing step code "B2".

    I had a similar issue with the X11SSH-f (difference was using UEFI boot from NVMe and a Mellanox CX3 card) when using BIOS rev 2.0. I had to get SM to send me the prior BIOS 1.1 and it got past this and proceeded to boot.

    Unfortunately I had other priorities and did not take this further with SM.

    So I run this exact same mobo with an ahci SM951 to run pfsense and it does work. I could not get pfsense installed on an SM961 NVME drive but was able to run windows on it. as has been correctly pointed out you wont see this drive in the bios until you get an OS on it. After installing windows the bios boot devices displays "windows boot manager"
