NVMe ssd with addin card

HP Recommended
h8-1380t
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Have the h8-1380t with 3.6ghz Radeon HD 7950 (3 GB)  video card, 32 GB system ram 3x2TB drives. Its a great setup best one I've ever had and it plays WAWCoD Advanced warfare in 1980x1080 with NO video/audio lad what so ever. Couldn't get a power-color rx580 8GB gpu to play that game without constant lockup/freezing. Cloned  rotational boot HD to WD SN500 NV-Me ssd using Acronis, clone completed smoothly with NV-Me mounted on a small card inserted into 2nd PCIE x16 slot. Restarted after removing orig 3.5" boot drive but system doesn't recognize nor boot from NV-Me ssd? Any ideas?

@rdiiorio , welcome to the forum.

 

Without knowing the brand and model of the SSD adapter, I believe that it could be that the PCIe slot on the motherboard is not compatible with the adapter.  I suggest that you contact the manufacturer's Tech Support to see if they can help you solve your problem.  Since your computer was released in 2012 you are attempting to add new technology to old technology.  This doesn't always work properly.

Hi The h8-1380t has no problem recognizing the WD sn-500 NVMe ssd when its in the PCI card and mounted in the x16 slot, i can read and write to it beautifully. The problem is when I clone the rotational HD to it, It is not seen by the system as a boot-able option. The bios doesn't give it as a startup option either  I am guessing at this point the MB/bios is not able to boot win 10 64/bit off the PCI card in the pci slot.

A:  I am sorry if I didn't make myself clear in my previous post, but your statement is exactly what I meant.  This is why I recommended contacting the adapter manufacturer's Tech Support to see what they have to say.
