ASUS Z170A with Samsung 850 EVO M.2 as boot drive

I'm building a new rig with i7 6700k and a STRIX GTX 1080. I have an ASUS Z170-A and a M.2 Samsung 850 EVO 500GB drive that I want to use as my boot drive. I read that people have faced issues with M.2 boot (device not recognized) with these motherboards. I have a wireless pcie card also.

My question is how to set up the M.2 boot without issues? And also, will using M.2 affect the graphics card performance on this motherboard?

  1. I just swapped it for a SATA drive because there is no loss in performance and less effort.
