I checked https://www02.cp-static.com/objects/pdf/9/950/1349805089_1_solid-state-drives-plextor-m8pey-px-128m8pey.pdf , they support Microsoft Windows 8.1, 10/ Linux OS, In this case I suggest contacting the SSD NVMe manufacturer in order to confirm if they have supported drivers for the OS you are currently trying to install.
Thank you, Caesar, for your reply.
I decided remove not used devices. Currently on the board installed only one SATA HDD 500Gb, DVD. I prepared Flash Drives - one with Win8.1 x64 and another with Win10 x64 and one DVD Win10 x64 LTSB .
Load default BIOS setting. Setup Mass Storage to AHCI mode and Bios options : EFI Optimazed Boot = Enable.
All attempts boot from devices: 2 Flash drives and 1 DVD Win10 x64 LTSB , give the same result. Can not boot through UEFI, OS loading is started, I see Windows logo and apprx. after 30-40 sec. I see first 3 stars and loading freezes.
After I installed SSD drive, I select Windows Boot Manager by F6, and see the same problem as above.
I have another server with the same MB and BIOS version 02.05.0004. All tests have the same problems, loading OS is freezes.
Therefore, maybe this is the bug in EFI loader of Intel MB BIOS.

Today I conducted tests with another motherboard - Intel S5500HCV.
No problem with this board, Windows 10 x64 Install Wizard loaded is the same flash drive, which I did for the previous test.
Moreover, on Intel S5500HCV BIOS page Boot Options - In option "Add boot path", I see Plextor SSD drive, and can to add partition to boot sequence.
After adding this path to boot I can start boot from SSD, but loading isn't successful. On the Intel S2400SC board I could not get such result.
Definitely problem with BIOS for Intel S2400SC. Two mainboard failed loading by UEFI mode.
We are in the process to confirm if we are able to install an operating system using the UEFI mode as this has not been reported by other Intel customers.
I will keep you posted with the results.
