    FS: 800gb Intel S3500 SSD, HIGH USE - $65

    I have one 800gb Intel S3500 SSD for sale. It works 100% as far as I can tell, I just got new drives and don't need this one any more.

With the default BIOS settings (and latest BIOS version), one GPU will prevent any VM it is attached to from starting at all and the error logs (and then Google) point to disabling a BIOS option called Memory Mapped I/O...
