Much as Iam used to Win 7 it is now coming to the point when Win 10 will have to take over. Some apps are not compatible in their latest form and I find that the latest monitors (also due to change) may have resolution issues running under 7. I am planning to install Nvme M.2 on an adapter card and there seemed to be some debate about which slot was suitable. The thread I have seen on here discussed this and suggested slot 1 but this was to run a dual nvme adapter. I wanted to put a Samsung 970 Evo and make it a bootable drive for Winows 10 and maybe dual boot with Win 7. Are there issues with this route. Any advice welcome.

There can be issues with the PCIe adapters and booting Windows from them. If the system does not have an M.2 slot on it, I would just use a SATA SSD. There is not enough of a speed difference in real world use that the hassle of adapters is worth it.

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I should re-appraise but what issues develop if trying to intorduce M.2?
