Boot from PCIe SSD

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello fello' OC'ers -

I have a fairly old P6T Deluxe V2 mobo running my main workstation for several years, and it has been really great. I have 2 RAID 0 setups along with a SSD (Samsung 840 Pro). I've been recently reading up about PCIe SSDs card adapters and have been really curious. I bought a Sonnet Tempo SSD PCie to test out and wanted to attach my Samsung 840 Pro.

I can't find it any where where I can assign the boot disk to the attached Samsung 840 Pro. I went to the Sonnet website and was going to download the Firmware updater from the Sonnet website and see if that would do the case. Seems like I may need a BIOS update for my P6T Deluxe V2 mobo?

Has anyone been able to boot from a PCIe SSD in the P6T Deluxe V2?And if so, How? Or is this even possible with this mobo? Would a better option be to get a SATA III PCie adapter instead? How are speeds comparable?

Thanks!

A PCIe adapter won't increase your speeds at all, it will just be bottlenecked by the SATA connection.

OP, if it isn't showing up in the BIOS then check under the Peripherals tab.

I am not sure. Are you talking about using the SSD as a cache drive? I will try to do some research on that and see if I can help.

SATA is the standard connection type for the SSD you have. Converting the SATA connection to PCIe won't change the speed since SATA is slower than PCIe.

950 pro won't work on x58 due to no nvme support

if you want to go pcie ssd, look at kingston hyperx predator pcie ssd. thats the only one i know of that supports x58 pcie boot.

This should help you set up an SSD as a cache drive (you will need to reinstall windows though). And thanks kckyle for helping OP.
