as it says ,

A customer needs to install two NVME SSD and wants only one SSD to work at a single time , the only option is using NVME PCIe card with two M.2 slots on the card and some type of rear button that selects which SSD is powered .. it is a simple concept but I could not find it around .

any help Appreciated , before I have to make the card myself.

Can't find such product as well.

What's stopping your customer from pressing F12 after a reset to select the boot drive?
He does not want them both visible/accessable at the same time. it is not about booting alone . he will have to disable one of them each boot from Bios and thats not practical.

All what I found was Sata Selector .. nothing NVME was made .

Is he booting to Windows on both drives?

If yes, he can just put the unneeded drive offline in Disk Management.

Option 2 is, just use SATA SSDs and use the SATA selector. He'll still get near-NVMe performance with that.

Beyond that, I'm out of ideas.

I told him other options , but he just wants NVME selector ... The card would cost me $100 to make .. but then have to sell it for $200 ..
