    Has anyone tried NVMe boot with an X9DAi. I know it is not a "supported" chipset, but I see talk of people getting NVMe drives working on X79 boards and the chipset is substantially similar. TIA

    X9DRG-QF

    I was able to install Win 10 on Samsung SM951. I was in the middle of trying to get the drive to boot though after initial installation, but wasn't quite successful. Then I decided to get flash to latest 3.2 bios, and now I can't even install Windows .. (See another reply to your thread)

    In my experience with x9 boards is that some work with NVME, and some do not work at all. I never tried to boot from it though at all, ever.

    Supermicro gives explicit explanation of which boards support NVMe. X9DRG-QF does. With 2.3.1. UEFI bios, etc etc. Might be that I didn't have the right bios when I tried initially (was running on old 1.0b). Either way, I want to test it with my Samsung, but I can't with this exiting ACPI_Bios_Error on Win 10 installation setup.

    If we only relied on what manufacturers told us we could and couldn't do we wouldn't have as many cool builds as we do :)

    Yeah I am full out trying to get NVMe to work. It will get me 2400mb/sec read over current 1450mb/sec read. Just need the darn old bios to get myself out of the existing issue...
