Personally, I would upgrade the FW prior to installing the OS, if this is practical.

I have CSM enabled and Secure Boot disabled, although I doubt that it makes much difference. Also, for a fresh OS install, I concur that it would be safest to unplug all other SATA drives first.
Thanks for the response.

I got the drive yesterday and installed it and turns out it's already on the latest firmware.

I have quite a few things to do this week so I'll try the clean install of Windows this weekend.
