Question
I have a X9Dai based workstation with two XEON CPUs. With the release of Windows 10, I would like to switch to an Intel 750 NVMe PCI-E SSD as system drive, but I am not sure if the Mainboard supports boot from NVMe.
Answer
PCI-E NVMe SSDs are supported in UEFI Bios. Please refer to the following steps in case you need to install an operating system into the SSD:

  1. Go into the bios to the section PCIe/PCI/PnP Configuration and change the Device Option RomConfigure “UEFI mode” from Legacy on Riser card slot or PCIe slot.

  2. Save and exit the bios.

  3. During the post press F11 and select “UEFI: DVD-ROMxxxxxxxx” to start the installation. Some OS versions include inbuild drivers.

  4. Reboot after OS installation, press F11 again and select “Windows Boot Manager” to load the OS. Its best to change the boot sequence in the BIOS if it is not in first boot device select "Windows Boot Manager" as first boot device in the BIOS.
