I think the answer is that it probably will work (since I haven't worn one out). The eMMC does not contain the BIOS or anything else necessary for booting to the M.2. I've used the eMMC alone on one of my 5070s after wiping the whole thing, and an M.2 alone on another 5070.
I bought it thru one of Commell's American distributors Global American Inc.:

There was discussion of the Alibaba NIC & variants for other computers on the STH tinymicrominy thread...
I've never done what you're talking about, but, have you looked at the admin manual:
It sounds like you might need to set the nextcloud config.php parameters - trusted_proxies...
If you want to try a bleeding edge kernel you might try something like: Fedora nightly compose finder
I only know the Fedora one, but there's probably the equivalent for other dists.
I had a similar problem with a box that wasn't compatible with kernels from about 5.6 to 5.8. The workaround was...
I thought I'd reply to this since no one has offered any ideas. Keep in mind this is completely untested.
You can get an HP 230W 19.5V 11.8A AC->DC power adapter (brick format) on ebay (about $20). These were made for larger laptops and I think they're compatible with the HP elitebook power...
Nextcloud is by no means targeted as a lightweight cloud solution. I ran it as a drop-box on a raspberry pi 3 and it was slightly painful. I suspect you will be much happier with a little more power than the pi 4. Something with a proper SATA hardware instead of going over USB would probably be...
I went through one of their NA distributors - Global American Inc.: https://globalamericaninc.com/product/commell-m2-210/
I got the quote immediately, but waited about a month for the IOCrest Realtek NIC.
It was $44 for one, shipping extra.
If you're on Linux you can install BIOS updates via 'fwupd'. A summary page is here is as good as any:
fwupd - ArchWiki
I've never had a system that got BIOS updates delivered in that way, and I suspect many of us are running headless and would not see it otherwise. It seems quite nice. It...
Thanks for replying. That's an interesting setup. It's good to see another card working. Would you happen to know what the BIOS says on the M.2 slot entry in the information section?
Your link to the other item didn't make it thru intact.
My quest to add a second ethernet to a slim model has been somewhat trying. I got this M.2. A/E-key Ethernet card about a week ago:
IOCREST 22x30mm M.2 A Key and E Key to 1 Port 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Card
but it was not recognized by the BIOS or OS. Of course, it might...
