    Hi,

    I can confirm this method works. I have successfully modded my Supermicro X9DAi BIOS and now It boots off of a Intel Optane 900p.
    Must say, things are blazing fast now :D..

    Is there any chance you would share that bios? It'd be much appreciated :D

    For some of the Supermicro BIOSes (probably for older motherboards, so new BIOS updates for old boards are included) you need to follow this as you guide:
    RE: [Guide] How to get full NVMe support for all Systems with an AMI UEFI BIOS - 228

    Basically UEFI edit strips Pad-file when saving and also does not compress the FFS file in the way that Supermicro BIOS expects.

    I have used this method to inject NVME boot support into X9DRTH8.719

    I was able to get the NVMe module inserted into the latest bios for the SM X9DRi-LN4+ I can share if your still looking for it.

    Take this with a gain of salt but on the supermicro site both boards point to the same bios download file. I can't seem to see much different besides a few more sata/sas ports on the DR3 board. So I'll say yes it will work...

    this isn't strictly related to what you're doing, but i'm trying to get a modded bios for my X8DAH+-F m/b, I've looked all over the place a can't find one ANYWHERE :(. All i'm looking to do (if possible) is unlock the BCLK so I can bump up the xeons speed a little. if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated :D.

    May I know how you managed to boot win10 x64 on the x9dri-ln4f+ at all??

    I'm struggling with errors and blue screens just to boot it on a regular SATA SSD...
    SuperMicro does say that anything above Windows 7 cannot work.

    Thanks!
