    Microsoft does not seem to include RAID drivers for any manufacturer. I am not sure why. I'm not certain that's the problem with your TufBook but I have a Razer laptop that needed the Intel RAID drivers to reinstall Windows because the BIOS is configured for RAID.

      Thanks, I will try this out. But I really want to know why Microsoft couldn't incorporate this into most recent ISO image download as this is essential for a Windows 10 installation on a Ryzen PC!? Some useful error message would also been helpful.

      I must say Ubuntu (or better the Linux kernel developers) did their homework, Microsoft didn't. So much for the better windows hardware suDevicepport...
      Ok, I downloaded the AMD RAID Driver (SATA, NVMe RAID) from https://www.amd.com/en/support/chips...ocket-tr4/x399 as linked in the PA-260 article and gave it a try.

      The "AMD-RAID Bottom Device" is shown (and some more if I uncheck the compatibility checkbox) when I select the folder on the usb stick but no fitting drivers are found.

      There is no support for Ryzen mobile CPUs / chipsets mentioned in the driver details description. For now I stop here.

      If someone tells you Windows 10 installation is a piece of cake compared to Linux please send him/her to me (with the cake)...

        They only need to include a generic NVMe + SATA driver to continue the installation, no special RAID driver should be needed for the laptop.

        In the article AMD mentions that Microsoft changed the IOCTL requirements for drivers in version 1903 so older installer may still work.

        Also thanks for the BIOS configuration hint but there's no option to change anything regarding NVMe/SATA and no RAID option.

        Windows 10 1809 will be my last try.

          I am the owner of a FX505DT and I just built 5.6 from Linus' master branch and gave it a try. Some change in moving from kernel 5.5 to 5.6 has messed with laptop power management. On 5.6 it is burning through 10% battery in 13 minutes. In comparison, I just reloaded my arch distro kernel 5.5.13-arch2-1, and am getting 10% battery reduction in 26 minutes, twice the battery performance of 5.6.

            That's a pretty great thing to hear! I was getting cold feet about switching to Linux as I recently got a great deal on a TUF laptop and heard about them overheating, but I'm now in the green and will try to see what I can do. Thanks for telling about that, I'd have completely missed the news otherwise!

              i get the 4700U based ASUS laptop in two weeks. Hope it works . Overheating is hopefully not an issue, if the fans work. 15W TDP is not that much and it doesn´t have an dGPU
