Windows 10 doesn't detect nvme disk during installation.

Postby Zerophase » 20. Oct 2017, 04:23

I'm trying to install windows 10 to vdi on an virtual NVMe controller. I made sure to turn on UEFI to enable booting from NVMe, but Windows still cannot find the disk and asks for drivers. I tried looking for drivers on the guest additions iso, but couldn't see anything on the iso. (throught the windows install file browser) Which NVME driver do I need to install for Windows 10 version 1709?

None. It worked with previous Windows 10 builds but the latest one doesn't quite seem to follow the NVMe specification.

Anyway, right now the benefit of NVMe in a VirtualBox VM is nil.

Access to virtual NVMe drives from Win10 1703+ guests works for me if either VirtualBox is downgraded to 5.1.30 or the Windows NVMe driver stornvme.sys is downgraded to 1607.

See https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/17228 for test results.
