Just curious. I have an AsRock Z77 Exterme4 motherboard. Obviously, it doesn't have a M.2 Slot. My question, if I bought a M.2 SSD and a PCIe Card with a M.2 slot on it, would the card operate in SATA or perform normally? Thanks.
sorry best solution is not entirely true.Intel Series 7 Chipsets - Z77 have no BIOS support for NVMe storage booting. You would need a third-party BIOS-mod or software such as Clover to boot from it.
