I found this article which summarises the m.2 nvme drive specifications but unfortunately does not include the 9030 All in one desktop which has a B-keyed 2242 m.2 slot.
My question to the community is what is the specification of this m.2 slot. Is it mSata or PCI-e x2? If PCI-e x2 is it backwards compatible with mSata?
Thanks for your support.
Did you ever find an answer to your question? I'm trying to figure this out myself.
I tried an m.2 2242 Sata drive, but it didn't show up. I'm not sure where to go next.
step 1 is reflash your bios, see what happens and B cards are legacy. and not NVME at all.
the BIOS must have the NVME support inside to use any baseline NVME card.
also the M slotted card will not fit a B sloted mobo.
there is one exception to this, the Samsung special class of (legacy) M.2, that has its own bios chip that allows legacy PC to boot with only this card.
the other trick is using USB stick that has a special boot strap, that then uses and boots the modern M.2 card.
samsung sells the special m.2, its not some secret, for legacy
sales are low as most legacy owners are too cheep to pop for this expensive card.
