    D510MO Mini PCI-Express SSD?

    Jarocks

      I know that this technically shouldn't work given that the majority of Mini PCI-E SSD's aren't wired the same way as normal Mini PCI-E cards, though I was more or less wondering if there are any Mini PCI-E SSD's out there that do work with this board, or are there any BIOS updates that would allow me to use an SATA Mini PCI-E SSD with my D510MO board or boot from it?

       

      The BIOS Update mentions something about a Mini PCI-E to SATA Bridge:

      Updated Jmb363 Mini PCIe to SATA Bridge OpRom.

      I have no idea what this means, any clarification on this would help imensely.

          I have the same questions as you, Jarocks. It's very annoying that those statements in the BIOS update release notes doesn't clarify anything.

           

          I am guessing that Jmb363 could be the chip present in "lots" of mini-pcie sata adapters, that could be the reason for Intel to include this option rom in the BIOS, but I could only find one, and it has a Silicon Image chip.
