Can HPZ240 boot from Samsung 970 EVO 500GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD?

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have just bought an HPZ240 Workstartion. It says that I can add a hardware at M.2 PCIe3x4. I would like to add the following SSD - Samsung 970 EVO 500GB - NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 SSD   and boot it from there after cloing the the current SATA to the Samsung NVMe... will this work? Also can I chage to Boot from this than from the SATA in BIOS?

while you can add a m.2 form factor nvme based ssd to the z240 using a pci-e carrier

 

you can not clone a legacy "MBR ppartion" onto a UEFI GPT partition

 

as long as both the existing drive and the new drive are GPT partions you can clone  from one drive to another

 

a quick check for a GPT is to use "disk manager" and note the partition type reported

I am attaching the screenshot of my current SATA. It would be great if you can have a look and let me know if I can clone this to NVMe and then boot via the NVMe drive. 2018-11-08_12-42-31.jpg
