New Scanner Will Not Read NVME PBX Smart

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded to the new scanner version. I updated thru the scanner software. I am running 2.5.2.3190

I have a NVME BPX 446 GB drive. Smart is not showing up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Phil

P.S. Thanks for the new update..

I got the NVMe health to work in my scanner software.

I upgraded my Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. Everything works now as it should. Thank you for getting stats working for my NVMe drive.

All is good now. Thanks

It was actually easy to upgrade. I downloaded the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft.

I opted to save the files as a ISO. I extracted the files from the ISO into a install directory on my NVMe drive. Then typed setup.

It installed Windows 10 Pro since I was upgrading from Windows 8.1 Pro. Once the upgrade was completed Windows activated itself. I wasn't prompted for a product key or anything. So it looks like you can still get the upgrade for FREE! I'm not complaining.

I hope this info can help someone else get a free copy of Windows 10.

You might want to double-check the activation on that installed copy of W10, and verify.  Even using the media creation tool, supposedly the resulting copy of W10 isn't licensed.  It would be nice to think that it was, but..

The only exception Microsoft built into their ruleset was if the PC was previously upgraded to W10 during the free upgrade period.  It can then be re-upgraded down the road for free.

Looks like it's activated to me. If you know of a better way to verify I am all ears. I do want to make sure that I am activated.

Thanks
