    Is it possible to make an NVMe SSD bootable with Windows 7?

      Hi everyone,

       

      Intels documentation states that the P3600 and P3700 Solid State Drives are not bootable with Windows 7 because only 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 have the native driver. Provided that the motherboard's UEFI BIOS supports booting from an NVMe drive I don't see why I shouldn't be able to load up the NVMe driver prior to attempting to install Windows 7, however I don't feel comfortable spending such a large sum of money on a P3600/P3700 until I know for sure that I can make this work.

       

      So my question to you all is; is it possible to make an Intel NVMe SSD bootable with Windows 7? Has anyone done this?

       

      Many thanks,
