Read the specs @KGIII ....do you see mention of a M.2 slot anywhere ?
Which is it ?
Number 1 does not actually have a "hole/plug" for the nvme to go into.....there is no 'hole' in the board.
Number 2 does have a plug to push the nvme into
Again, your adapter must match (or be compatible with) your system, and this bit is telling us that not all of the PCIe slots will work to boot your NVMe drive. Look over your board again carefully, check the user manual if it will help... but try to be sure which PCIe is the one that supports NVMe, and match that connector when you buy an adapter.Also in the specs, there is a red asterisk beside
- 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slots (PCIE1: x16 mode; PCIE4: x4 mode)*
- 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x1 Slots (Flexible PCIe)
- Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™
*Supports NVMe SSD as boot disks
Duh... how did I miss the others? Cool. Looks like a winner.EZDIY-FAB NVME PCIe Adapter, M.2 NVME SSD to PCI Express Adapter with Heat Sink Support PCIe x4 x8 x16 Slot,Support M.2 SSD 2230 2242 2260 2280
Your picture, and Brian's picture too, both show that there is no socket there to receive the SSD. Those are empty solder pads... where the socket would be on the Pro4/Hyper model. You can see circuit traces between the rows of pads on Brian's pic (and your other pics in posts #20 and #24)... those would be hidden if the plastic housing of the M2 connector was present. I think that Brian has the basic Pro4 motherboard. Here again are the ASRock factory specs that show the first 2 models do not have an M2 capability (in Storage section of the specs):You don't put it there. It goes the
