We appreciate you confidence in Intel products, here is some reference information that you can review before buying and installing an Intel® SSD 750 Series.
All the Intel® SSD 750 Series drives are PCIe® Gen3 x4 devices and they are available in 2 form factors: the Add-in Card (AIC) that uses a single slot x4 connector and the 2.5-inch that uses the U.2 connector. They are not SATA devices, and there are actually some requirements for proper operation, and to use them as bootable devices.
Using an NVMe device to boot a computer system requires the following:
- A system BIOS configured to enable uEFI* version 2.3.1, and support NVMe boot
- A system based on an Intel® Z97 Chipset, or an Intel® X99 Chipset
- A 64-bit operating system that supports uEFI; Microsoft Windows* 7, 8 or 8.1
- For Windows* 7, the CSM in the system BIOS might need to be set.
- The Intel NVMe driver
