@alciregi possibly yes, but i think is good leave know to them that the users also want others things and not only windows and i always want believe than in his forum (asus forum) exits users than can help. I don’t know really much about Asus but one should try at leats to know if deserve or not buy his PC laptops in the future.
At this point comments to the OP that try install /change the RAID driver to AHCI driver through windows and see if it changes anything. But i still think that should be good ask asus at leats in its forum.
No no, you are right. Good to let them know that there are also Linux users buying their products.
What I want to say, is that contacting support, most of the time the person who keep in charge your request will limit to say: “sorry, we don’t support Linux”.
As said initially machine doesn’t boot at all with the sata mode set to AHCI.
It looks like the nvme device is accessed no matter what boot device has been selected and that doesn’t work in AHCI mode. So It fails to find any kind of bootable device, resets to factory defaults and restarts.
I gave up, stuck a SATA SSD into it, binned the nvme gizmo.
