Hello,

My computer has no problems and works fine, latest drivers/BIOS/OS updates installed. My SSD boot drive is running low on space. Motherboard does not have M.2 connector. I'd like to use a PCIe riser card for M.2 drive to connect the drive to motherboard to install Windows 10 x64 on M.2 drive and use this M.2 SSD drive as boot drive. Is this possible on my Z77 OC formula motherboard with any BIOS settings/update and/or additional utilities? Or this motherboard can only boot from SATA drives and M.2 can only be used as fast storage drive on my motherboard and not as boot drive? Thank you in advance for your attention.

No, but you can use it as the storage drive, if the MB can recognize the M2 with pcie riser card.
