I want to install and boot from an m.2 drive by instaaling an pci-e expansion card and installing the m.2 drive to it.

Question is —does the bios on the 700-215xt have an option to enable booting from pci-e card driver?

700-215xt : Does BIOS support booting from Pci-e expansion slot?

‎05-22-2016 07:34 PM

Most PCI-E m.2 SSDs require UEFI mode which is typically not supported by Windows 7. Yes you can get W7 to boot in UEFI mode on some PCs. It all depends on the compatibility support module in the BIOS.

BTW — some m.2 SSDs will boot in either MBR or UEFI mode. I have a Plextor m.2 SSD that boots in both MBR and UEFI mode.

I you want to move ahead with using a PCI-E m.2 SSD as a boot device then be prepared to move to UEFI mode and either W8.1 or W10.

@GeorgettaCZ:
Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!

Since you obviously were able to install the Win8.1 onto your PCIe connected NVMe SSD and to boot off it, there seems to be no need to insert any additional NVMe module into the BIOS of your mainboard. The only problem, which has to be solved, is the fact, that the BIOS or the OS doesn’t find the Windows Boot Manager while rebooting.
Questions:
1. Did you istall the OS in LEGACY or in UEFI mode? Which Partition Table (MBR or GPT) did you create?
2. Which BIOS settings did you choose within the BOOT section (especially regarding CSM) and which bootable devices are shown there?

Zitat von GeorgettaCZ im Beitrag #1 Now the problem is that when I try to flash the bios with this modded file (via the bios built-in tool), I get error message "Security Verification Failed".
How can I restore the security of the file? Or shall I somehow override the verification of the file? Or shall I use a different bios tool to write that file in it?

Flashing of a modded BIOS into the BIOS chip of an ASUS BIOS chip can easily be done by using the specific ASUS "USB Flashback" feature, but I don’t know, whether your mainboard supports it.

There is a misunderstanding. I booted from USB stick with WIN8.1×64 install. Then during the installation, in the window where you configure your disks and partitions, there was one full capacity MBR partition created already, by me from a different PC, the system denies me to install OS on that SSD drive. I had to remove the current MBR partition. I only had Unlocated (or Unused) space on the entire the capacity of 112,8GB on the SSD.

Then I clicked on this unused space and clicked Next. So the installation program used some automated partitioning scenario for the whole capacity of the SSD and created 3 partitions. Now the SSD partition table looks like |—350MB NTFS BOOT—||—100MB FAT32 Recovery—||—112,3GB NTFS DATA—|.

After successful OS installation the PC rebooted but then IT DID NOT BOOT TO WINDOWS NORMALLY. I ended up with a UEFI BIOS error message instead, telling me to go to BIOS=>Security=>CSM and enable the proper PCI-E. blah blah blah. I dont remember exactly what it said. , but anyway it did not boot the newly installed Windows.

Do you think, to boot up in UEFI and then create GPT partition would help? But how do I select whether to create a MBR or a GPT partition tabel on the SSD? I think I havent seen such option during configuration part of the installation at all. So I would have to create a GPT partition prior to the installation, i.e. on a different PC?

Answers to your questions:

1. It was in UEFI mode I believe. You know when you press F8 (I guess) you will get an option menu to boot either from the USB or from the USB in UEFI mode.
2. I will do some pictures and post them soon.

You obviously missed the option to create the size of the target partition for the OS yourself. You should have used the "New" button!

I don’t know the exact reason, but it may have to do with your procedure at the beginning of the OS installation.
This is what I recommend to do:
1. Create a bootable USB Flash Drive with your desired OS on it by using the tool Rufus. Important: Choose the GUImode Partition Table as partition scheme!
2. Unplug all HDDs/SSDs except the target NVMe SSD.
3. Boot off the USB Flash Drive in UEFI mode (should be shown ny the Windows Boot Manager as "[UEFI] ").
4. When you have to decide, where you want to install the OS, delete all shown partitions of the NVMe SSD (don’t mix it with the USB Flash Drive), then click onto the button "New" and let the Setup create a system drive partition with a size of your choice.
5. After having done that, the Setup will create at least 3 new partitions, but only the 3rd one has enough place for the OS installation.
6. Point to this big sized new partition and let the OS Setup continue and finish its work.

So, here are the pictures! I hope you will be able to tell me how to set it up all correctly, watch the pictures ant tell me wher to put what option.

Generally, if I understand it well, I should keep the CSM enabled and the Secure Boot disabled. Then I only need to set up correctly the EFI boot options for the "classic" storages and PCIE/optional storage devices and I might be ready to boot from the SSD, right? You can see it is not a M.2 or whatever but it is an Apple 2013 SSD. I got one 1TB SSD in exact the same PCI-E x4 adapter in the PC I am currently writing from, running Win 8.1 x64 with no problem! So I know how it works and I know it is possible to boot from this HW. All I need is to set it up correctly. Then the installation of Win 8.1 x64 only takes about 6 minutes ( comparing to half-day installation of Win 98, hehe).
