Booting SSD from PCIe x1 slot

Recommended Posts

schoondoggy
Hi schoondoggy,
 
I failed to be able to boot with my PCIe to NVME setup using an Intel SSD.
 
I'm able to install Linux but fail to boot
 
I'm unable to install windows and I'm prompted by a message windows cannot install......
 
I think I need to exactly buy what you are using

Do you have the BIOS set to UEFI boot? What is the part number of the Intel SSD?

That's the one which has been eluding me

 

I don't know how to set to UEFI boot

 

I don't even know if this gen8 has a UEFI bios

 

Any idea how to set to UEFI boot?

The MS Gen8 does not have UEFI BIOS. You can not boot NVMe in a MS Gen8. This thread is for MS Gen10.

Ok understood

 

I'd be getting my Gen10 3rd week December

 

Anyway, I would be in need of your SDM

 

No idea what version for me to use for the Gen8 and possible the Gen10

 

I need to mount a 3.5 HDD if possible
 

Can you enlighten me on this and how can I order one?

Currently, I only have SDM for the MS Gen8. The SDM R4 will hold two 2.5" drives of any thickness or if you use the SSB stackers it can hold four 2.5" drives up to 9.5mm thick. I also have the SDM R3.5 which will hold one 2.5" drive of any thickness or if you use the SSB stackers it can hold two 2.5" drives up to 9.5mm thick.

I am working on modifying the SDM R3.5 to fit in the MS Gen10.

None of the SDM support 3.5" drives. At one point in the past, SDM R2, I had mount holes for a 3.5" drive, but it needed to be a low profile thin drive which the largest was 1TB. There is not enough space in either MS for a regular 3.5" drive.

Thank you for the info

 

I'd be eagerly awaiting your SDM R3.5

Hi All,

 

Some updates.

 

Anyone interested, I was able to have some success in having my Gen8 and Gen7 boot off an mSata using a PCIe adapter.

 

Note that the Virtual install disk feature needs to be turned off

 

This opens longevity and durability for FreNas and Nas4Free builders

 

Instead of using a USB Thumbdrive, use an mSata SSD instead.
