I recently bought a Refur. T7600.. Online manuals say Boot Options include legacy + UEFI..
So will it support a samsung 950 pro m2 pcie3 x4 with an addin card (which do you recommend BTW?) or intell 750 SSD as boot drives? (also which is better?)
Thanks in advance
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Precision T7600 parts page shows the following SATA3, 2.5'", 7mm SSD so we know that they are supported as boot drives =
KTM9M 256GB Micron
HHCWG 512GB Liteon M3S-M
2XFM1 512GB Liteon M6S-T
HN71H 512GB Liteon M9S
3YYV3 256GB Liteon L9S
DFVVG 256GB LiteOn Vangogh
X9HG1 256GB Liteon Vangogh
WKFTG 256GB LiteOn Vangogh
XFJWX 256GB Liteon M6S
W18WD 128GB Liteon Vangogh
P4GHK 512GB Samsung SM841
V622H 256GB Samsung PM830
YRK2P 256GB Samsung SM841N
FFKNK 256GB Samsung PM841
Not sure about the two you listed though.
Thank you very much for your response..
Yes indeed SATA III is supported (Although dedicated to optical drives, while HDD drives are SATA II.. Don't understand why???)
But the models I'm asking about are NVMe PCIe 3 x4 drives (one with adapter, the other without..) So they're not using SATA, and they need NVMe, and I don't know if that's supported in the T7600 bios or not, and if the drives will actually succeed to be boot drives..
The documentation says the Bios can be either legacy or UEFI (the latter is requred for NVMe) but doesn't specifically say any thing about NVMe being supported or not..
Unknown. This system is from 2012 and I do not see any notes about NVMe on its internal documentation.
Short answer is No and there are no UEFI NVME Bios settings. You also do not have PCI-E 3.0 bus.
Thank you for your response @ejn36 , Yes - I realize that I need to Use PCIe slots, the SSDs I asked about one of them uses the PCIe directly (the Intel 770), and the other (950 pro) needs an adaptor..
I know that the drives can be used, the question was more about whether or not they can used as Boot Drives..
