That won't work on the T410s.  The T420s has mSATA support.

It's not mSATA like the Intel 310.   It's PCI-E SSD -- with a marvel controller

 

All I'm looking for is the ability to boot from the card itself... so the bio would need to recognize the PCIe as a harddrive

mSATA and mini or micro PCIe are overloaded terms in this case and the same. It is not supported with the T410s.

PCIe SSD does not always equal mSATA. For example there are full size PCIe cards for desktops, and this card may be a laptop version.

 

If the card works at all, you will want to find out of the T410 supports boot over PCI-E. Everything I found by googleing pointed to the idea that you will not be able to boot over PCI-E.

 

All is not lost and you could try a chain boot, by loading something like GRUB on your current HD and then having GRUB boot from the PCI-E drive. YMMV.

The mPCIe is working right now.   mSATA is not supported - even though the form factor allows it (if in mPCIe).   I have attached a screen shot...
