  1. Question about NVMe SSD Adapter Cards


    My computer is a Dell XPS 8700, and the only onboard SSD port is for an mSATA sized SSD; I got a standard 2.5" sized SSD (samsung 860 evo) as my OS drive, and it has been good for my system when I got it and beyond. But I found a somewhat good deal for a 1 TB NVMe SSD (Samsung 970 Evo Plus), and I want to ask a question I hope can be answered

    If I get an adapter card for my computer like this, either from ebay or amazon or whatever other retailer its bought from, and use an NVMe SSD on it, will there be any performance drop at all compared to using it on a motherboard that has an NVMe capable slot on it?

    :)

  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.

  3. NVME SSD

    Tried this, and windows still didn't see the nvme ssd. It was a brand new nvme ssd right out of the box. Nothing works.

  4. Question about NVMe SSD Adapter Cards

    Windows refuses to install on NVME SSD (Samsung 960 EVO)

    First, thanks everyone who copy-pasted the first relevant results they found in Google. I found those before I asked the question.

    The solution that I got to work is as follows:

    • Disable CSM / UEFI
    • Enable Secure Boot
    • Now the installer can access the NVME SSD
      • Format the drive
      • Restart the machine

    • Enable CSM / UEFI

    • Disable Secure Boot

    • Proceed to installer and now Windows will allow you to install to the NVME SSD drive
