ok i am trying to understand this a little
I have the X10DRU-i+ board and using the AOC board with NVME WD black sn770
do i just take a backup of the bios that is on the board now and than add the nvme stuff to it or use the latest from the website?
Also what string would i add it was not real clear what i need to add to the supermicro board
Provide the latest bios file from the Supermicro server, i dont want to create/login in their page. Also provide correct model of the AOC board.
Ill check it for NVMe support on it.
But usually needs NVMe mod
EDIT: The bios 521 already supports NVMe as it contains the AMI NVMe DXE module on it, no NVMe mod required.
Presumably you know how to configure the bios as pure UEFI mode and the correct installation of the OS as UEFI, EFI compatible GPU (The ASPEED seems so), secure boot etc…
So all that remains its hw issues, incompatibility/setup (The AOC maybe…).
What else can we say…
Even much…much more older chipset/motherboards will work with NVMe with mod or by default supported…
what also i am noticing odd is during an install of truenas for example it can see one nvme but not the second one on that card, it will let me install as either UEFI or BIOS but will still never boot to the NVME no matter what configs in the bios i set.
I have set everything to efi and still no luck booting to that nvme.
I see the search but is there something i should be specifically look for in the search? only 5 items there.
Since this discussion has much more to do with the in-use M.2>PCIe adapter card than with the mainboard BIOS, I have moved the related discussion into the “Interesting PC Hardware” Forum section.
ok i am trying the MMtool since the uefitool cannot insert for some reason but it says look for CSMCore there is no CSM core and it looks like with these the drive is in the 01-5C section but i want to confirm
it did not take the change at least trying to update from the BMC going to make a USB next.
EDIT: It works now with that same BIOS i uploaded. you cannot update using the BMC but you can using a boot USB stick and use that file. once rebooted it found the Drives right away and booted the OS that was installed to it
