Windows can not install on my WD SSD SN550 500 GB


Recently I installed a WD SSD SN550 500 GB on my desktop computer having an ASUS H97-Pro motherboard. During new installation of Windows 10 / Windows Server 2019 it shows a warning “Windows can’t install on this drive…” and after installation when the system is going to boot it fails with message Can not load windows loader! I read lots of documents & watched videos to find a solution, but no success yet.
Any body has been having similar problem?



I request you to test the drive health status through Western Digital Dashboard and share the test results with us.

The drive is ok and operate correctly as an storage, but it could not load windows on system boot!
Finally I find the solution! I got H97-Pro BIOS update from ASUS site, after upgrading the BIOS, windows can boot from my WD SN550 storage.
