Detailed description:When I run the samsung Express ssd v 3.3 (latest) driver.exe, it fails saying. "Device not connected, please connect and try again."

System boots fine, bios recognizes the ssd, Samsung Magician works but says I'm using the wrong driver. Device mgr->Disks shows the drive

Device mgr-> Storage Controllers shows Microsoft Storage Spaces and entries for Intel VMD Controller 09AB

So I am am using the Intel or microsoft ssd driver and unable to install samsung's dedicated driver.

any ideas?
