@unmesh, I'm 90% sure that not
It is unfortunate that Dell has tightened things down that much for the sake of product differentiation. It looks like I will have to decide whether m.2 boot is more important or system manageability.

Thanks

Only the PCIe x16 slot is direct to CPU ... other slots including (the in-demand 20 year old) PCI slot is PCH.
Wonder what that does, if anything, to real world use/performance.

Another odd thing (to me anyhow) ... the T40 supports VROC .... so does this mean bifurcation support in BIOS on the x16 slot?

I am not feeling so bad I keep missing this deal ... it is an omen .... sticking with the T30.
