Bootit BM with M.2 SSD and Asus Z170-A?

Wed May 11, 2016 3:05 pm

I am trying to to use Bootit BM with a Samsung PM951 M.2 SSD attached to an Asus Z170-A motherboard.

First of all when I booted BM from a stick with just the M.2 SSd attached to the motherboard I got a warning saying it could not install.

I evenually managed an install but now Bootit BM thinks the SSD is 7.9GB or so big and won't let me create another partition.

The Asus 170-A is a new toy, so there maybe some settings I could change.

Windows 10 could create a partion on the rest of the SSD.

Is there anything I can do to get Bootit BM working properly with this SSD?

it gets it's information from the BIOS, so you'd start there, ensure the
drive is configured correctly in LBA mode and full drive size seen. If
it's a GPT drive, you'll only see the part of the drive the GPT is
configured to use.

Thank you, Looks like I managed to buy an M.2 SSD that is not compatible with my motherboard. - No wonder it was cheaper than the other models. :shock:
