Any issues with makeing a PCIe SSD bootable on modern hardware?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I haven't looked at PCIe ssds for a while now, I know some of the older ones had issues with being a boot drive on older hardware.


I was looking at a ~1tb PCIe to free up a few sata ports on my system. I'm not looking at M2 sized drives, but full sized PCIe cards.


MB is EVGA x99 Classified, 5930k, windows 10 etc


Are there any rumors that 1tb PCIe drives are going to go down rapidly in price like the sata counterparts?thumb.gif

I used a PCIe sad when they first came out and i used a Revodrive. The only issue i had was getting the proper drivers to make the thing work, it took 2 hours to try and find it but after that everything worked fine.

Only your UEFI is responsible for booting a PCIe SSD. It has to support it. If it's skylake hardware, I assume it works.

Wrong. It's server SSD which is not bootable model (enterprise market is very different than consumer channel). No matter what UEFI you have. If it is not bootable that's it.
