I have a system built on AsusP6X58D-E motherboard. I installed my WD 512 GB NVMe M.2 hard drive on an ACon/Able PCI-e 1xM.2 PCIE = 2x M.2 SATA SSD Low Profile PCIe 3.0 x4 Host Adapter located in a PCI-e slot (last on the board). The original drive is a OCZ 256 REVODRIVE3x2 SCSI Disk located in PCI-e slot 2. I know that I have a PCI-e 2.0 and not 3.0 slots.
I cloned my Win7 hard drive using Easus Todo Backup Home 10.6. I get a good clone. It is recognized in Disk Managment as "Healthy (Active, Primary Partition). I find the Microsoft driver in Device Manager under Storage Controllers as Standard MVN Express Controller as version 6.1.7601.18615 and trying to update am told that this is the latest version. Under Drives I find: NVMe WDC WES512G1X0C-SCSI Disk Device with latest driver version: 6.1.7600.16385.
The drive is recognized in Windows Explorer as Drive A: with the name of the original boot drive.
On reboot the Bios dosn’t find the drive
When I reboot and go to Bios or a Boot menu the drive is not recognized (does not appear in either). I presume that this is due to the inablility of the Bios. Anyone know of a workaround or is this not possible. Seems OCZ has done it.
Any help would be appreciated.
