Asrock P67 Extreme6 Support Boot to PCI-E?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Does the Asrock P67 Extreme6 (or any of their motherboards in general) support boot to PCI-E? I've read the entire manual, and I can't find anywhere this is mentioned in text or pictures. I've emailed their support, which hasn't given me a reply in a couple weeks now despite several attempts to get in touch with them. I've check OCZ forums to see if anyone had listed support with this or similar board, as well as exhausted pretty much all of my google-fu.

I'd simply go another route, but I have the board, and I have no desire to buy a board before Ivy Bridge this fall. Rep for the answer.

Note: The board is not currently in use. I'd rather keep it as new in box if it isn't going to work. Also, I have no empty case, as I'm still waiting on delivery of the PC-V8

Just about every motherboard will boot from a PCI, PCIe or PCIX slot. My old P3 boots from PCI.

Check your BIOS, go into the boot order options. Do you see an option that says "Add-on card"?

Once you're on BIOS, are the REVO drives not being recognized?

sub'd as I have the same board.

If I don't find the answer, then I'll end up providing it myself.

My board is sitting on the desk next to me unused. I'd rather not mount the CPU, add memory, a graphics card, and power it all just to verify the answer. If it does not, I'd like to be able to sell it as NIB.

Sorry, I should have clarified. I am also aware that most do, but that some do not. Just trying to cover my bases.

Completely understandable, considering I'm in the exact same situation.

Just set my brother up with a Crucial 300D with his new build. Wonderful drive, good overall and 4k transfer rates. Would have gone with a raid of those myself if I didn't pick the Revo up.

However, I don't have two of them, it's just called the RevoDrive x2. Wish I did though.
