P700 ThinkStation PCIe NVMe card

2021-08-09, 14:16 PM

Hi All,

 

Kindly, can somone of you guys confirm if i can use a PCIe NVMe drive to boot the OS?

 

As i cant find the Flex Adapter anywhere, and when i find the price is astronomically funny and they are not even new :)

 

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the Community

 

According to this thread, you can. It does look as if you'll need the adapter, though.

Thanks for your quick reply, the htread talks about the Flex Adapter which i know it will work, but my question was if a third party PCIe M.2 Nvme adapter would work as a boot drive. Regards.

Yes you should be able to use a PCIe add in riser/carrier card to add support for a M.2 NVMe drive on your system.

 

These cards are usually pretty straight forward, so a 3rd party card is likely low risk.  But Lenovo does offer one that should be fully supported with Option PN 4XH0L08578.  This will come with the PCIe carrier card and the heatsink that sits on top of the drive.

Thanks @ Psuturtle, but can I use it as the main disk, as a OS boot drive, please?
