    NVMe SSD via PCIe not Booting Windows 10 64 Bit


    Hi.

    I wish to replace my old HDD with an SSD so have bought an NVMe. It is this one: Seagate 512GB BarraCuda 510 SSD (Up to 3400MB/s, 3D TLC NAND, PCIe Gen3 x4, NVMe 1.3 Solid State Drive): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    I have bought an adaptor card to go with it: SupaGeek M.2 SSD to PCIe Express 3.0 x4 Adapter Card, Supports M-Key M2 NGFF NVMe or AHCI SSDs 2280, 2260, 2242, 2230, Upgrades Desktop Solid State Drives: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

    This has been fitted into the PCIe 3.0 slot and Windows 10 recognises it with no problems and I can use the drive.

    However, I have cloned my HDD onto the new SSD using the Seagate Diskwizard but my PC will not boot from the new drive.

    I have changed all available BIOS settings but it's the same error: "no bootable devices found".

    Motherboard is this one: GA-H61M-S2PV (rev. 2.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE Global and I'm using the latest stable BIOS (FH).

    Is my BIOS/motherboard too old perhaps?

    I did try briefly using a freeware bootloader to no avail. Could this be the way to go if it gets setup properly?

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Clone present nvme pcie ssd to replacement nvme pcie ssd?

    I have a 500GB M.2 2280 NVMe PCIe SSD (boot drive) that I want to replace with a higher capacity M.2 card.

    Where do I put the new SSD during the NVMe to NVMe cloning process? My mobo only has one M.2 slot for NVMe SSD's so do I want to use an external adapter for one of the M.2 cards? If so, do you have a recommendation?

    If you have solved this issue for your desktop or laptop I would like your advice on if and what extra hardware you needed during the cloning.

    please remember that I am dealing with PCIe NVMe drives ONLY. NO Sata is involved except possibly for a connecting cable from the desktop to an adapter. I am experienced with cloning SATA III drives but cloning NVMe is a little
    new to me.

    Computer: Dell XPS 8920, 32GB ram.

    Present SSD: KXG50ZNV512G NVMe Toshiba 512GB

    New SSD: CT13049074 Crucial P1 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD 1TB (or 2TB if available soon) or similar storage device.

    Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, version 1809.

    PCIe adapter to NVMe SSD

    I have a Dell Inspiron 580 desktop circa 2012 running Windows 7. Would like to upgrade to Windows 10 and boot from a new PCIe adapter for NVMe SSD. I understand that I may have to install new NVWe drivers to have BIOS recognize PCIe as a boot drive option.
    Am on I the right track? Is this even possible? Any help would be appreciated. TIA

    PCIe adapter to NVMe SSD

    Hi,

    First off, you need to determine if your BIOS supports booting from a PCIe NVMe M.2 drive..

    I have a 2012 era Asrock motherboard in which the Bios provided by Asrock did not support booting from the NVMe, although it could be used for DATA.. I eventually found a website catering to the editing of BIOS files and was able to add modifications to
    the Bios to make this work.. It works well..

    Windows 7 will need drivers for the PCIe NVMe, Windows 10 has them built-in...

    New drivers will not solve a Bios issue that does not support your device.. You will need an actual Bios that is capable of recognizing it as a boot device.. Your Bios may support it now, but it may not.. It depends upon what type of updates Dell has made
    available..
