Booting W10 from NVME on HP EliteDesk 800 G1

HP Recommended
HP EliteDesk 800 G1

Hello,

I would like to upgrade my HP EliteDESK 800 G1 with this NVME + HHHL:

 

https://www.amazon.it/Kingston-KC1000-Solido-Interna-Scheda/dp/B072ZPMR43/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=152...

 

Before I buy it, I would like to know if I would actually be able to boot a fresh install of Windows 10 from it. Any suggestion is gladly accepted.

From the following link, sounds like you can do that given your machine already has NIC option:

 

     https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c03840403

 

with the following option in BIOS:

 

     Enables/disables the computer’s ability to boot from an operating system installed on a network server. (Feature available on NIC models only; the network controller must be either a PCI expansion card or embedded on the system board.) Default is enabled.

 

Regards.

BH

Many thanks, I will buy it and report back  with the results.

By the way, I have already a Windows 7 (downgrade from Windows 8). I wonder if I can simply install WIN10 on the NVME and simply format the HDD with WIN7 on it without any trouble.

After successfully booting from PCIe slot with Windows 10, you can do whatever you want with your old HDD.

I have inserted the NVME  on the pci X16 downgraded to 4x. I am able to see it on windows 7, to recognize it and install windows 10 successfully into it but unfortunately i am not able to boot from it in any way. Do you have any suggestion?

After some check I've been able to boot the NVME by using an USB stick as 3rd party bootloader, since latest bios doesn't support NVME (02.70 Rev.A). I need an updated bios in order to make UEFI recognizable, I don't want to be forced to use an USB stick by some unlegit, expecially because the latest BIOS is from 2016. Any help about this?

I know this might be a bit late, but I am considering buying such a tower, so I want to see if NVME is supported as well.

 

There are new versions of the bios, at least for the tower version. They can be downloaded at the HP website.

 

As you did not specify the specific version of the 800 G1, you can go to:

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/desktops

 

and just type in 800 g1 in the search bar, and choose your version. After that, go to bios, and choose the latest version.

 

Good luck, and tell us how it went.

Which bootloader did you use? Do you have the configuration files for that? I've been unable to boot to the NVMe after using Clover and rEFInd.  Thanks.
