Does Hp 580-023w bios support NVMe SSD boot support?

Hp 580-023w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have no interest in gaming or VR. 

 

I removed my GTX1060 PCI E x16 graphics card.

 

I would like to add a high speed PCI e x4 m2 adapter card and NMVe m2 SSD in the graphics card slot. I want to use this drive as my boot drive.

 

I am aware I can use a SATA ssd, but these SATA SSD are too slow. (so please don't mention that)

 

Will the current bios support selecting the NVMe PCIe SSD as a boot drive?

 

Is there a workaround bios? or non OEM bios that will work?

 

Thank You!

Hi

 

An HP system engineer would know the answer to this.

 

I can only guess.

 

Since HP has not included a PCIe 3x4 M.2 NVME socket on the motherboard there would be no reason to provide boot support for such a device in the BIOS.

 

You should not try to install an third party BIOS on an HP motherboard.

 

Maybe you could find an adapter card manufacturer that provides a system driver to allow using the device as a bootable device.

 

This will add some complexity to your system.

 

HP recovery media will not work (it will not see the M.2 drive)

 

You will have to install this system driver on the current OS installation before you copy the OS over to the new drive.

 

You will have to use a different backup and recovery method should you ever need to recover your system.

 

You will have to add this driver to Windows 10 installation media so the drive is detected as bootable when installing Windows 10 clean.

 

Tom
