Hi,

 

I don't think T330 supports boot from PCIe M.2 NVMe SSD. 

 

Here maybe you can try, set the BIOS to UEFI. And in the BIOS, set the SATA mode to AHCI. If it's not detected, the server should not be able to support it.

Hi,

 

I don't think T330 would be able to support M.2 NVME. Is the M.2 NVME a SAS drive? Do you have a picture of it? How do you do the connections?

 

Does the server BIOS able to detect it?

The solution would be to use a dedicated USB flash drive and set as the first boot option, use its grub booting to redirect to nvme drive.
1. Install Linux into this USB flash drive.
2. install os into your nvme SSD(I use Asus hyper PCIe nvme adapter, which should also work for your case )
    you can use disk copy software or other tooling to install os in nvme drive.
3. change the default grub entry on the USB drive to nvme
I bought a mini-sized USB drive to attach to PowerEdge server.

The key point is to use USB flash drive's grub configuration to redirect to PCIe-nvme SSD installed OS.
