Drivers for Windows installation.

Options

Hello, Recently I purchased an Inland 1 terabyte TN450 NVMe SSD. After installing it into my computer, I booted into a Windows 10 x64 install USB. As soon as I clicked install, It prompted me that I needed a media driver, I have tried everything to get this to work, But nothing has done it. The SSD is detected in command prompt, It is detected by Ubuntu, but not Windows installation.

    Try this, initialize your SSD using the Command Prompt (CMD) in Windows, follow these steps:

    1. Open Command Prompt as administrator by typing "cmd" in the Windows search bar, right-clicking on "Command Prompt," and selecting "Run as administrator".
    2. Type "diskpart" and press Enter to launch the DiskPart utility.
    3. Enter "list disk" and press Enter to display all connected disks.
    4. Identify your SSD from the list and note its disk number.
    5. Type "select disk X" (replace X with your SSD's disk number) and press Enter.
    6. Enter "clean" and press Enter to remove any existing partitions or formatting from the SSD.
    7. Type "convert gpt" (for GPT) or "convert mbr" (for MBR) and press Enter to set the partition style.
    8. Once you see the message "DiskPart successfully converted the selected disk to GPT format" (or MBR), your SSD has been initialized.
    9. To create a partition on the newly initialized SSD, you can use the following commands:
      • "create partition primary"
      • "format quick fs=ntfs"
      • "assign"
    10. Type "exit" and press Enter to close DiskPart
