Has anyone successfully installed Windows 8.1/10 in legacy mode on a Samsung 950 Pro NVME SSD?

There is absolutely NOTHING on the internet on installing Windows in legacy mode to an NVME SSD.

I don't want to recommend that my friend buy one if I won't be able to set it up the way he needs it.

  • Are there any issues I should be aware of?
  • Are there any hacky tweaks that need to be made?
  • Will there be any drop in I/O performance?

Thanks!

  • Yes; I have many times; Windows 10 fully supports both MBR partitions and GPT partitions – Ramhound Aug 10 '16 at 2:06
  • @Ramhound - Why would you downvote? The whole point of this was because there is absolutely NOTHING on the internet on installing Windows in legacy mode to an NVME SSD. – Android Dev Aug 10 '16 at 12:45

Well, I disabled UEFI boot in the BIOS, booted from the USB, and crossed my fingers.

And it worked just fine :)

So the answer is Windows 10 can be installed just fine in legacy mode to a Samsung 950 Pro.
