Hi I have the Nvme+sata card with the SATA connected to the 5th sata port and it boots up from there. I also have a Nvme drive installed but it is storage only. Win 10 OS

PCI-e bifurcation is the issue. I can not tell for certain, but there does not appear to be any controller or intelligence on the card you listed. That card would require the motherboard to bifurcate

If you are considering going to mSATA RAID1, you could go with a inexpensive LSI RAID card and two 2.5" SATA SSD in the ODD bay. That would be the most cost effective route and would be the same perfo

For NVMe to boot you need a UEFI BIOS, which the MS Gen8 does not have. RAID for NVMe is possible on motherboards that support the latest Intel RST features and have two NVMe capable M.2 slots. As @korbymentioned, the board you have posted above is likely one NVMe M.2 slot and one SATA M.2 slot. There are dual NVMe M.2 cards available, but I have not seen one with any RAID features. I have not tried NVMe in a MS Gen8, it may work as a storage device, if the OS has NVMe support, but it will not be bootable.

I tried a similar NVME to PCIe adapter, with a single SSD - it wasn't even recognised by the server.

What OS was running on the server?

How about this one?

I don't need it to boot, just be a SSD RAID front end for HDD RAID back end, system OS (Linux) on USB

 

Thx!
