is your nvme disk one that fits into a standard pci-express slot? there may be hope but otherwise I don't see any m.2 or or u.2 connectors there.

Thanks for your comment, I plan buy a second hand DELL PCIE to M.2 card and a M.2 NVMe SSD.

But not sure the NVMe SSD can boot directly, I just found somebody connect NVMe to T20, nobody report the T20 can boot from NVMe SSD

I have confirmed the T20 can't boot from NVME directly .

I have unpacked the latest BIOS version A11 and there is no NVME driver.

T30 Don't have the NVME driver too.

I gave up the NVME plan and use SATA SSD instead.

 

For other people reference, there are several way to use NVME SSD:

1. Use the NVME SSD as a disk store data only.

 

2. For Linux split boot partition to a SATA or USB disk and put root partition into NVME may work.

 

3. A method boot from NVME directly from legacy bios mode, not sure this can work.

4. Modify BIOS add NVME driver, somebody has make it work, The modified BIOS may need special hardware to flash
