    I started with 2 1TB Intel 670p NVMe drives when I built like 3 years ago, one boot, one extra space, then replaced the "storage" drive with a 2TB WD SN850X and installed a fresh copy of Windows 11 on it a year or so ago, since I wanted the boot drive to be fastest. No issues there, just went in...
