    Can't you make the dvd have boot priority over the m.2 disk in your bios? Although there probably should be a key to select the boot menu.

    Have you formatted the drive as a GPT disk ?

    There are boot priorities in the bios menu. I have them in my Gaming 7 which uses a similar if not same bios.

    By boot from DVD, do you mean from the dvd drive or a Windows 10 disc ?

    edit: OP's issue is not quite the same issue I was having.. I installed win10 from usb. But still, might help someone.

    I had to download and install (put on a flash drive) the intel rst drivers at win10 install time when the installer didn't find my nvme 600p drive... I browsed to my flash drive with the rst driver and viola, it found the drive and I was good to go. took a while to figure that out but it anyways..
