Previous generation was quite popular, but maybe that was later in life.

Using a 950 Pro NVME in the M.2 slot. Works fine with three notes:
- W7 doesnt come with NVME drivers so youll need them on disk/stick for its install
- The NVME drive does not activate the HDD light (silly oversight)
- BIOS has an NVME info section but doesn't populate with any data for me

EDIT:: Simultaneous response

I assume retro means a new enough version of windows to natively understand NVME.
