Hello All,
I have an ASRock J4105-ITX system running my NAS. However this MB has only one PCIe expansion slot. However, I would like to add both a SATA/SAS expansion card and another NIC to my set up.
Can I use an M.2E to mPCIe adaptor (e.g. : https://ebay.to/2DKascH) to add my second PCIe card? The M.2 slot is clearly labelled as Wifi/BT and I am not sure if it will recognize a NIC/SATA add on card.
At the very least, can I convert a M.2e slot to a M.2 b/m slot for me to add an SSD cache without using up a SATA port?

thank you.
