The Intel® SSD 750 Series is a high performance SSD, designed for PC enthusiast and workstation systems.
This drive does not require a specific chipset, however, it has some requirements that are normally available in systems with a newer chipset.
We strongly advise you to check with the computer manufacturer to validate your system meets the requirements, and if there are any compatibility implications.
- PCIe* Gen3 x4 compatible connector (SFF-8639 or HHHL x4).
- UEFI* 2.3.1 or later
- Windows* 7, 8 or 8.1.
We would like to mention that the Intel® SSD 750 Series is considered a high performance consumer product.
If you plan to use your workstation with a data center/server workload, or using a server OS version; you might want to consider a Data Center SSD, such as the Intel® SSD DC P3500 Series, Intel® SSD DC P3600 Series or Intel® SSD DC P3700 Series.
Data Center SSDs have enhanced performance, endurance and data protection that make them optimal for Enterprise systems.
There are some documents and validated combinations about Intel Data Center SSDs for Dell* Servers in the following link:
I just got off the phone with SuperMicro and they say they have not tested the PCIe SSDs with any of their C612 based motherboards although they meet all the specifications listed by jonathan_intel.
I bought asus Z10PE-D16WS motherboard and try to install 750 ssd and i couldn´t boot from the drive on windows 7. windows 8 and windows 8.1. It seems the bios from the motherboard doesnt reconize intel 750 as a boot drive. Its is weird because it has all the requirements and the new version of the bios says it suports NVME drives....If someone could help I am in doubt if i shall return the product from the store that i bought or try a support.....
The Intel® SSD 750 Series is a PCIe NVMe device. Booting from it requires uEFI, 64bit OS and NVMe driver.

Ok only x99 and z97 motherboards at the list....Do you think the P3600 series will boot in my motherboard?Does it have a list of tested motherboards for the p3600 series?At Asus web site it says the p3600 400 giga and 800 giga is qualified component. But i need to know what Intel says about de p36000.....I have only 2 days to exchange my product....
We would like to inform you that we cannot guarantee that the Intel® SSD DC P3600 Series will be bootable from all motherboards using the Intel® C612 Chipset. This capability would have to be confirmed with the motherboard manufacturer. On our best effort to help you with this, we do have these two documents that explain the steps required to boot from an Intel® PCIe* NVMe* Drive. Please check the links below as they contain information that might help you.
Hi, I have a dual Xeon 2695 V3 and recently I purchased an Intel SSD 750 Series PCIe. Is this drive working with S2600CW2 motherboard? I need to boot from the SSD.
Update BIOS of MB up to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25363/S2600CW-BIOS-and-Firmware-update-for-IDA-OFU-WinPE at least for NVMe support. You should boot in UEFI mode with disabled CSM (check the other server parts, like separate network adapters and storage controllers for native UEFI support). If current OS was installed in Legacy mode, you should install OS clean.
I'll try it, thanks.
Can I update firmware from the BIOS itself?
