Plextor PX-512M9PeY on old mobo possible?

I'd like to get the PX-512M9PeY for a job with an old pc and then move it to my main rig, Plextor however tells me it is impossible but... I think the dude was confused. The board I want to use it on is an MSI 890FXA-GD70 w/1090t. I it's pre-uefi, and am unsure if there is a uefi bios update, msi's site is weak. I have no need to boot from the nvme drive on this machine. The guy at plextor said it wouldn't work anyway as just storage if the bios didn't support nvme. Maybe there is a way with Fernando's forum? Or maybe it will work fine but not be bootable.. I hope lol, thanks for any help.

Do your own research and testing, both for peace of mind that (a) What you're reading is true, and that (b) Your gear ain't defective!

pci-e riser card for nvme, since you're not booting from it, it should work normal. the only issue with BIOS over UEFI is that most cant boot from PCI-E

It's not an M.2, it's intended mount is PCI-E, (mine is only 2.0 on that board). So ur sure it is fine without nvme bios?

It will work just fine as a storage device. You only need Bios Support if you want to boot from the thing. Otherwise a card like that would need a boot loader built into the firmware like a Raid Card does.

The card has a built in storage controller.

Thanks man, that's what I was thinking, but the guy at plextor was pretty insistent that it wouldn't work at all.

With a little work you can actually boot of a USB flash Drive and load your OS of the NVMe drive as well

Samsung 950 Pro and Plextor M8PEY will show up in BIOS on pre-EFI motherboard (NVMe drives with legacy BIOS mode).
