I don't think it might be possible, did you recheck your configuration?perhaps the drivers are not installed?

I would also like this, but just for a boot drive.

I called customer support and they told me to call the sales center ( 1-866-428-4465 ).

I called them and they were closed, they are open 9am - 7pm EST.

Hope this helps, and I will get back to you with my results.

So I called sales and they told me I could not purchase this separately. I'm going to look for a busted IdeaPad to pull it out of. Beyond that I'm not sure what to do.

@markozutic The other PCIe Cards do not have the same dimensions, and there may be a black/whitelist in the bios to stop it from recognizing others.
