    Hi, hoping someone can advise me.

    I have an X9SRL-F, which obviously has no M.2 slots for NVMe SSDs.
    While I appreciate the BIOS has no built in support for NVMe SSDs, so I could never use this as a boot drive (Unless I mod the BIOS as per https://www.win-raid.com/t871f50-Gu...rt-for-all-Systems-with-an-AMI-UEFI-BIOS.html
    I am wondering if I were to boot from another device to an OS with NVMe support, would that OS be able to see an M.2 NVMe drive connected via an M.2 to PCIe adaptor, such as one of these: https://www.scan.co.uk/products/aka...card-supports-2230-2242-2260-2280-22110-plus-

    Thanks for any advice you can offer.
    Cheers

    The answer, is yes, an OS with NVMe support will see the drive.
