We have got Intel SSD 600P series NVME ssd drive
However on adding to server this is not visible
Can any one let us know how to install OS on NVME drive ?
Is it necessary to first install an OS on other drive and then mount NVME ?
First, you need to verify that the server supports NVMe -- it may or may not. It would have to be a very new system in order to have NVMe support. What model system do you have?
Second, the OS you're installing has to have NVMe support. Windows 2016 server would likely be the oldest version you can use that will have NVMe support.
If you're installing another OS - Linux, UNIX, etc. you'll need to look for drivers for NVMe support. As is the case with Windows, only the newest distributions will have NVMe support.
I have installed Linux mint and now can detect the NVME drive.
I have also installed linuxmint on the NVME drive
However after installation I dont see it in boot devices to boot server using nvme
What could be the reason ?
While installing OS I could see NVME but however in boot devices I dont see any such option
I have got Dell Power Edge R420
It has Bios version 2.4.2
Still I dont see the drive in boot devices
Any Idea ?
