NVMe PCIe M.2

Z220 CMT Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I know this question has been asked a ton of times, but those questions/answers seem to go to system I guess before or after mine.  So now I hope who ever reads this knows that I'm asking about the Z220 CMT workstation.  Santa Clause has informed me that I have been a very good boy this year, and that has asked what I would like to have.  So I told him about this outstanding computer that I got early (wife's desktop died), and this was in my price range.  So I would like to know if I can add a NVMe PCIe M.2 card to boot from.  I've enclosed two links, This is the adapter:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0751CJ139/ref=ox_sc_act_title_13?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

And this is the M2.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07LGF54XR/ref=ox_sc_act_title_11?smid=A29Y8OP2GPR7PE&psc=1

Can I use this, and will I be able to boot from it.  Currently, I'm using Windows 10 Pro, 64, Inclosed is a picture of the Computer Product name and number.  Computer ID.PNG Here is a picture of my CPU:  Cpu.PNG

 

Thank you.

NVMe PCIe M.2

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

This question may have a good solution or a bad solution.

 

I don't see M.2 support on the motherboard (native NVME M.2 socket). This is usually required to boot to a M.2 NVME drive connected to a PCIe M.2 adapter. You need an adapter because you have no M.2 socket on the MB.

 

But your PC has the required UEFI BIOS. The latest UEFI BIOS update can be downloaded and installed from this HP Support site (Link).

 

I know the M.2 PCIe adapter will provide access to the M.2 NVME drive but don't know if you can boot to the drive. This means the Sabrent Rocket M.2 drive may be limited to a data drive.

 

Maybe a different forum member has first hand experience.

 

Regards

Once I get the drive and adapter, I will post my results (after Christmas that is).  Thanks.

Hi,

 

You're very welcome.

 

Very curious to know if the new NVME drive is bootable.
