PCI express to NVM M.2 will it boot?

HP Recommended
Omen 870-224
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I made haste and purchased a NVM SSD on the incorrect information I found online about it fitting on the board.

It is a Samsung Evo970

It obviously doesn't fit the board.

So... If I get a PCI-e adapter I should be able to use the drive... Right?

But the better question... Can I boot from the PCI-e slot as my primary drive once I get everything swapped over?

Thanks for the insight.

And... I guess I got one more question...

Is it worth it?

I know using PCI-e is going to slow the drive down, but... Amy I throwing away any gain I may have gotten from this device over a sata connected SSD?

Greetings,

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

The 870 does not support M.2 storage devices. Therefore you can install a PCIe adapter but the 970 will probably not be bootable when installed in this adapter.

 

A 2.5 inch SATA SSD will work correctly as a bootable device and will greatly improve system responsiveness when compared to the current platter HDD installed in your PC.

 

Speed differences (which do exist) between NVME and SATA will be barely perceptible unless you are working with large data sets.

 

Regards
