Solved!

Can my motherboard boot from nvme?

HP Recommended
HP G1 800 elite desk tower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey, so I am thinking of getting a m.2 to pci-e adaptor to place a m.2 ssd into the pci-e slot in my motherboard.  I would like to run my OS off this nvme. However,  will my motherboard allow me to boot from the nvme? I have the 18E4 motherboard on the elite desk 800 G1 Twr.

Right now the BIOS version is v02.75...last updated on 5/4/2018. If I update the BIOS, will it allow me to boot from the Nvme in the pci-e slot?

 

It says the BIOS mode is legacy? Can this be updated or changed to UEFA? Sorry if some of these are dumb questions,  I'm new to this.

 

Thanks

First off, the only dumb question on these Forums is the one you don't ask!! 😉

 

No, I don't believe that your computer has the capability to run PCIe, NVMe SSD's.  I base this mainly on the age.  It was released in 2013.  This was the first year that NVMe drives were introduced in desktops and laptops.

 

The BIOS can not be updated to UEFI.  It is an entirely different concept: https://www.howtogeek.com/56958/HTG-EXPLAINS-HOW-UEFI-WILL-REPLACE-THE-BIOS/

On Page 18 is a list of compatible drives.  These have all been fully tested to assure they are compatible with the motherboard.
