    Boot from NVME on Dell Poweredge 11G or 12G using Clover on Internal SD or USB

    I want to use a couple of NVME M.2 drives on PCIE board in my T620 with Ubuntu UEFI boot (ZFS install). I understand the 12G Poweredges do not support NVME boot but I believe I can use Clover on a bootable internal USB or SD card? Anyone with experience with this? Topic for a Youtube video?

    What NVMe works on Supermicro X10SDV boards?

    Hey guys, first timer here but have been lurking for a while. I'm hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on NVMe drive compatibilty with the m.2 slot. My board (X10SDV-4C-TLN2F) fails to detect both my 970 EVO and a Transcend 220S drive. In BIOS I put the m.2 oprom in EFI mode...

    Hi, I've been trying to get a RAID array created on the dual M2 NVMe drives installed on my X11SCH-L4NF mb, but it appears this is not possible on these boards (a bit late now I've got it sat in my lab!). Has anyone had similar experience with SM RAID, and my second question would be why do...

    Thoughts on ESXi 7.0 Boot Drive (Samsung 970 EVO Plus or WD SN750), please? (for my specific use case)

    I'd love some thoughts on what is the better ESXi 7.0 boot drive, the Samsung 970 EVO Plus or WD SN750, both @ 500 GB. Specs seem quite similar and just prefer to toss the matter out to the pros (which I am NOT). Please let me know - after review of my constraints - if I'm completely barking up...

    I'm interested in building a storage server and using a few AOC-SLG3-4E4R / AOC-SLG3-2E4R cards to connect to a bunch of NVMe drives. Per this Supermicro page, AOC-SLG3-4E4R, AOC-SLG3-2E4R (and all the other cards without a PCIe switch) require a mux for more than one card on same PCIe bus...

    NVMe PCI-E Adapter Card w/ PLX

    Hello. I have a server based around a SuperMicro X9DRi-F. Sad story about it is that the motherboard lets you bifurcate the lanes in the BIOS, but SuperMicro support says that just because the BIOS lets you do it, doesn't mean it works (they recommended the X10 or newer). I have a couple of the...

    How to create a bootable NVMe RAID 0 on EPYC 7601 (H11DSi-NT rev. 2.0)?

    BIOS doesn’t show any RAID option. So, is it a “software only” option? Why did they miss EPYC? (as THREADRIPPER has an option)
