Can you get a Precision T1700 desktop to boot to a SSD NVMe PCI Express card

Q: Can you get a Precision T1700 desktop to boot to a SSD NVMe PCI Express card

I recently got a Intel 750 PCI Express card and was hoping to make it the primary drive in my computer. Does anyone know how to configure these in the bios to be bootable. I have played around with setting the Bios to use UEFI, but it still won't see the drive. I can see the drive configured in its PCI slot, and my old windows setup can see the drive and use it. But I do want to make this drive bootable...
any help greatly appreciated

Preferred Solution: Can you get a Precision T1700 desktop to boot to a SSD NVMe PCI Express card

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I would like to upgrade my Precision T1700 graphic capacity.
I was wondering whether it could be possible to simply add a new graphic card and keeping the present one.
I have Nvidia Quadro K600 1GB installed and I am inclined to buy a 4GB Nvidia Quadro K2200.
I would be mostly thankful for the precise and precious advice.
Thank you in advance.

I have a new Precision 7710 with a 2.5 inch 1GB SATA SSD (system boot=Disk0) and a 1GB NVMe PM951 SSD.
I have been attempting to install Windows Server 2012R2 on the second, M.2 SSD (Disk1) into a GPT, NTFS partition.
Since this system has no DVD, I made a bootable UEFI thumb drive with the contents of the .iso installation for Server 2012R2.
The thumb drive boots OK and I can begin installation, but when it comes to choosing the target for installation, the M.2 SSD is not visible in setup.
The M.2 drive is clearly visible inside Windows 10 Pro as the D: drive.
So...I mounted the .iso setup file in Windows 10 and ran setup.exe. The install began and could see the target M.2 drive, and began loading files on the second SSD. It then attempted the first of several restarts that come with this process with the new Server 2012 R2 environment.
It sucessfully modified the Windows Boot Manager before the restart, then restarted, and the setup program gave an error because it could not find the target partition on the second SSD.
The setup environment then modified the Boot Manager to "Windows Setup Rollback" and proceeded to enter an infinite loop, attempting to delete files from the unreachable M.2 drive. I manually choose Windows 10 on the boot menu, and once booted changed Windows 10 back to the default OS.
I've tried several things (turning off Secure boot, changing from UEFI to legacy bios--it won't boot at all that way) , but I can't get that second disk t... Read more

Hello, I just got a brand new Dell Precision T1700 and the VGA port doesn't seems to work. The PC does boot up but the display is totally black. I bought a DVI to VGA and that solved the problem by connecting my VGA cable to the DVI adapte.
The PC comes with Win 8 Pro 64-bit. It doesn't show any error into the Device Manger : and the NVIDIA Quadro 620 drivers are OK.
This is my first Dell PC and I wonder if this is normal or do I have a problem with the VGA port? Or do I have to enable the VGA out maybe from BIOS or something? 

A:VGA on Dell Precision T1700

There is no vga port on the video card and you must use the video card since the built in vga port is disabled when a discrete card is installed.
It is a waste to connect to vga with a new computer. Digital is much better than analog. It you have an old vga monitor, it is time to buy a new one.

There isn't an M2 Socket.  NVM Express is not an option without an adapter.  Not sure if this can be bootable.  PCI-E Generation is not a SLOT its a Chipset.  If you have one PCI-E 3.0 slot then all of the slots are that generation.  M2 SSD requires X4 PCI-E slot.  The Video X16 slot cannot be used for storage controllers.

I have enabled RAID in the BIOS, and have 2 drives connected. I do not see any options and nothing happens when I press CTRL-I during boot. I've done this many times on a PowerEdge and it prompts you to enter RAID bios during POST.
Why don't I have option to configure? I called support and they were scratching their heads too. It may be worth noting that WIndows 8 is installed and secure boot is enabled.

My Precision T1700 desktop could not be turned on, with flashing LED light (2 short blinks, pause, 1 short blink) on the power button. This desktop was bought a bit more than 3 years ago and unfortunately the 3 year warranty just expired last month.I contacted Dell support yesterday and described the issue encountered. And they told me that it should be related to the motherboard. They said they would check and come back if they could find the parts required for the repair. (and of course i'm prepared to pay for the fees given that the warranty has expired)
I received an email from Dell today and it is disappointing to hear that they could no longer support T1700 as they don't have the parts. I have been using desktop by Dell since 2000. None of the previous desktops broke down within 5 years. And this is for the first time, I need to call for support and it is really appalling that the company can no longer support a top notch PC that was just purchased 3 years ago. 
How could I be convinced to trust Dell's products going forward with such level of after sale service?

A:Dell no longer supports Precision T1700?

The Precision T1700 was released in 2013. Once past 3 years, it is very doubtful that we would have replacement parts for sale for out of warranty customers. You will need to search for a replacement motherboard from a 3rd party seller. Search using these part numbers =
MWMM1, 1MN36, V5MC0 (Small Form Factor chassis)
6WK5N, XTVK8, H7HK5 (Mini Tower)

So, initially this Dell came setup with a factory OS on the PCIE based NVME drive.
Recently we re-installed the OS, but the OS setup was not seeing the NVME drive, yet, Bios was reporting it. So we setup the OS on an EVO SSD. We then cloned it over to the NVME after realizing Windows was detecting its presence. Everything worked well, we removed the Samsung Evo and the PC had used the NVME based cloned OS for a few days, but now it decided to lose track of the NVME and only boots into start up repair. Nothing you do does anything; last known good config, restore(none created), chkdsk(doesn't find issues), SFC /Scannow doesn't run(Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation). I then noticed that startup repair fails with a Log file "D:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt.
Clearly the OS now thinks the secondary 2TB drive is now C. I can't help but wonder if this was the reason I couldn't natively install the OS onto the NVME in the first place. There must be some startup delay on the NVME where the order gets shuffled around. Yet, the NVME is still the first boot device in Bios. so nothing has changed there. Ran diags and both drives pass. I unplugged the secondary SATA-based 2TB drive and that at least causes the startup repair failure to end with "Log file C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt"

If the drive was in RAID then that's probably why it doesn't like it. Probably since the PC does not see it as a logical hard drive but as a RAID drvie.

Older desktop running XP Pro. Had some problem booting yesterday; and today am unable to boot up at all.
Problem area seems to be the CD drawer.

Fairly sure that boot sequence is CD then C and then perhaps A (diskette drive).
Yesterday, it took several tries to boot the desktop, and I noticed that the green light on the CD drawer often kept flashing even after I had been successful. I ended up using a paper clip to open the drawer and left it open for the remainder of the day.

Today unable to boot successfully.
At one point screen showed some brief text, I believe whatever is typical at starting up sequence, but this immediately went dark. It seemed like the CD drive and drawer were trying to be accessed.

After several abortive attempts, I did a text message with something like
I believe Checksum error or Sum error but very far from being completely sure on what error code.
Previous attempts at starting computer have failed, please contact Dell for support.
While yesterday I had been successful at some point in getting CD tray to stay in the open position, and not keep closing - today I have been unable to do so.

At some point I should replace this old machine. If I can get it up and running again, I expect that I should take the CD drive out of the boot sequence (or put it after C drive).

I do not have any bootable CD at the office, and not sure if I have one at home either (this is computer I used to use at home and now have in office).

Sometimes (once a day or more) the disk activity goes 100% on Task manager - Performance, read and write speed to 0. After about 10s the computer crashes with a BSOD.
Sometimes instead (not sure if it is related) the computer hangs doing any disk related operation or it is really slow.

Does the T3610 support booting to PCI-e 3.0 NVMe drives?
I'm trying to get this configuration to work, but I'm having a heck of a time.  I'm running the latest BIOS version A11, and it is configured for UEFI boot.
I have a USB installation drive that is formatted with a GPT partition using FAT32.
I pick F12 at startup, pick my USB drive from the UEFI section, and install Windows just fine.  The Windows installation process sees my NVMe drive with no trouble, and installs to it just fine.  However, after the install is finished, I reboot and it won't boot to the NVMe drive.

I have a new 7710 that came with a 256GB NVMe SSD.  I have upgraded it to a Samsung 950 Pro 512.  I am using Windows 10 UEFI.
I have a question on the bios setting.  Should it be AHCI or RAID.  The machine came default with RAID On and came with Win 10 Pro pre-installed.
Currently I switched it to ACHI, used the MS Download and installed Win 10 Pro.  Once in windows, I installed all the dell drivers and also the Samsung NVMe driver.
I have read on different forums that the bios setting should be RAID, but also read it should be AHCI. 
Question:  Which should it be.  Is one better than the other?  
Or is it just that if in AHCI, it will use the MS NVMe Driver (or Samsung NVMe Driver) and if in RAID, it will use the Intel IRST drivers?
I assume if AHCI like I have it, then I can use the Samsung NVMe Driver.  I have read if not in AHCI, the Samsung NVMe Driver will not install.  
If I switch to RAID, then I would need to use the Intel Rapid Storage Tech (IRST) Driver and not the samsung driver (I read samsung driver will not install if AHCI).
So I am confused if one is better than the other (AHCI or Raid).
FYI, I have been using for around 10 days and no BSOD due to the PCIe NVMe drive.

A:Precision 7710 and Samsung NVMe 950 Pro

I own a Precision 7510 and am in the same situation. I did exactly the same except that I left the BIOS setting to Raid ON. When in Raid ON the Samsung Magician can only do the following:

Disk drive information for all installed disks. Particularly with the NVMe drive S.M.A.R.T. is not functioning even though it should be. All other drives display S.M.A.R.T. correctly.
Performance Benchmark. Only this function is selectable. All other functions are not available. Probably because the Intel Rapid Storage Techonlogy driver is loaded and not the Samsung NVMe

From performance view it seems pretty fast. Today I am going to change the BIOS setting to AHCI and I will share my results.

Can someone recommend what drivers are required to make Precision 5510 NVMe drive & Dell's USB network dongle appear working in WinPE3 (requirement for SCCM 2007)?
If i configure BIOS to Legacy i seem to have network connectivity.. BIOS configured to UEFI, i have access to the NVMe drive but no network connectivity...
I've tried numerous drivers from Dell / Intel but all without any success


A:Precision 5510 / WinPE3 & NVMe drives

All you need to do is install the Windows 10 ADK (doesn't matter if your deployment system is Win 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or server whatever).  Once the ADK is installed, during the Snap Deploy media builder, change to WinPE and it will do the rest.  Windows 10 ADK already has the necessary drivers for these PCIE NVME hard drives. First off it would need WinPE 10 in order to get support for UEFI BIOS and GPT formatting on drives, as WinPE 3.1 (based on Win7) and WinPE 4.0 (based on Win 8.0) are insufficient. and the INTEL RST 14 drivers would need to be included.  NVME requires BIOS Support.
AHCI is the only option available in Modern Bios and chipsets.  INTEL RST F6 drivers are REQUIRED for all advanced format 4k sector hard drives. Most all drives larger than 80 gigs with 4k sectors MUST have this. Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Production Version Release   This build has been validated on and supports Windows 10 TH2.

So my company orders laptops from Dell, and as per usual ordered one downgraded from Win 10 to Win7.
 In this case it is a Dell Precision 7510 with an Intel i7 and an SSD Lite On CX2 NVMe 512 GB. The SSD failed pretty quickly and Dell sent someone to replace it. I think he also replaced the Motherboard. Unfortunately trying to boot our Win
7 Pro image failed because this machine has only USB 3, and the standard Win 7 image has no drivers for USB 3. So the guy left before we got to installing Windows, which I now regret. I added USB 3 drivers to the image and got as far into the install as selecting
a drive but no drive is found ?and it invites me to load a driver for mass storage.
But I cannot find a driver for any Lite On SSD. I?ve never seen an SSD that needed one to be added, actually so not sure if this is the right way to tackle this. I have seen suggestions
of using another make of driver and I downloaded a load of different ones including Intel on the theory that?s the chipset. In BIOS I get option for AHCI and RAID On and I tried both with same result.
 It recognizes different drivers if I check ?Hide drivers that are not compatible?, depending on RAID or AHCI. But any I can see and load still give no drive visible. DISKPART also fails to find the disk so none of the solutions which involve
DISKPART are useful right now.
If it?s relevant when I go to boot options I get: Boot mode ? Legacy, Secure boot: Off.

My corporate office has told me that we will be using Dell Precision 5510 laptops in the future and our office uses Windows 7 Enterprise because we need bitlocker on them.  Dell has a fully functional Windows 7 Pro disc which I can download and install with no issues.  The BIOS is configured for legacy and the drive is configured in AHCI mode when I do the installation.
If I attempt to install directly from our Windows 7 SP1 Enterprise disc from Microsoft as part of our enterprise agreement, I get the error "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.  If you have a driver floppy disc, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now."  This error happens because I have a Skylake based laptop with only USB3 (no USB2).  When I attempt to inject the proper drivers into the install.wim and boot.wim files that are in the sources folder I no longer get this error, but the installer cannot see the hard drive unless I change the bios to UEFI and RAID.

Unfortunatelly your M800 have a whitelist in BIOS, which prevents booting with unauthorized devices, like your TP-link module. Sadly, you won't be able to use it. Below I've listed supported modules:FRU: 00JT471, Wireless,CMB,LTN,NFA344 V2FRU: 00JT477, Wireless,CMB,LTN,NFA435FRU: 00JT480, Wireless,CMB,IN,8260 ac NVFRU: 00JT497, Wireless,CMB,IN,3165 acFRU: 00JT506, Wireless,CMB,IN,8260 NV IndFRU: 00JT507, Wireless,CMB,IN,3165 ac In Please do note, that all these moduels have m.2 2242 size and require additional reiser card m.2 -> PCIe and proper antenna kits. More information about parts below:https://download.lenovo.com/parts/ThinkCentre/m800_sff_parts_12302016.pdf Hardware maintenance manual:https://cc.cnetcontent.com/inlinecontent/mediaserver/test/978/7cb/9787cba5683f4da9b9867fd349b7ca81/o...

I have a Precision t7600 with A12 BIOS.  Asus hyper PCIe card installed with SM951 M.2 NVME SSD.
Currently the system runs flawless, booting from (2) RAID0 sata in LEGACY BIOS mode.
I installed the NVME on ASUS-HYPER PCIe card.  System recognized the SSD right away.  SSD  formats, copies, passes windows tool tests.  Yay - fun and fast.  Ok now I would like to boot from this fast SSD.
I physically disconnect mechanical SATA drives, from the system.
Create usb-thumb windows 8.1 install, and attempt to install to NVME SSD.  After the system partitions the SSD, I click "OK".  The first cycle install operating system to SSD - good.  The system reboots gracefully.  Normally after this step, system SHOULD NORMALLY boot from the drive and continue to install.  On MY system, will fail at this point:
 "No bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility Press F5 to run onboard diagnostics."
If I leave the USB thumbdrive in, it will automatically boot from the install USB and recycle the windows install from START again - and do this for eternity, instead of booting from the brand new install to the NVME SSD.
Going on day 3, really frustrated.  I can NOT get this system to take an install, in the UEFI, on the SSD.  I tried windows 8.1, windows 10 and Ubuntu 16, same problem each time.  I recently updated BIOS from A10 to A12.  I have tried to use RUFUS procedures to crea... Read more

A:Precision & SM951 NVME SSD. Using UEFI, on USB created from Microsoft d/l windows 8.1 and 10: "No bootable devices"

When it says Strike F1... did you press F2 and look in BIOS setup to see if that drive is first in the boot sequence?

Is it possible to boot OS from SSD Express Card inside the slot?

Like Verbatim:


A:Satellite Pro U300-143 - Boot OS from SSD Express Card


This would be possible if the BIOS would provide such support.
But as far as I know the BIOS support booting from:

*USB FDD, HDD, ODD, Network(LAN), USB Memory*

As you can see the booting from Express Card is not supported.

so I'm considering getting a Samsung 970 PRO 512GB Internal PCI Express 3.0 x4 (NVMe) SSD for my P52 as a second SSD. How do I install it? Do I need to buy anything additional like I would need to for a SATA drive (which in that case is the bracket/cable)?  Also, where is the official SATA stuff for the P52? This website doesn't look official.

I need help! So I'm reaching out to you even know this is not the forum--any ideas? Loved to make this ol' 64 bit run again for my kid!
I need to get a video card that will work with Windows 10 on a Dell Precision 380--It's a PCIe card with a power connector on the card. Can't figure that out. Any ideas? It has a FX 3450 card now.
Also I have a Pentium D 3.0 GHz with 8 GB of RAM so it's working--kind'a. I can't update the driver on the video card because this is so old, but it's running Windows 10 without a hiccup except for the video latency--skips like crazy--Didn't have the problem with XP: just after the upgrade. Mind you, this is 64 bit

Just got the desktop and put in a Samsung 960 EVO SSD.
I was only getting half of the rated speed of the SSD and noticed that the SSD was running at PCIE Gen2 instead of Gen3.
Can anyone confirm if the NVME slot on the motherboard is Gen3 capable or am I stuck with the slower speeds?

Can someone confirm or deny that the EliteDesk 705 G1 desktop mini supports NVMe M.2 drives?  I've seen mention that the 800 G1 systems support NVMe drives, but not the 705 series. The quickspecs for this DM says that the M.2 is PCIe X4, but not whether the BIOS supports NVMe. (The 705 G2 DM specs clearly indicate this. I wish the 705 G1 DM specs were a little clearer.)

I have read about 100 different explanations of this process all fraught with scary changes to BIOS and difficulties installing windows from scratch on the card from a sd card.
I wanted to ask if this procedure would work.. Please correct my errors
1  Boot into safe mode from MSCONFIG. Hit f2 and go into bios and change from RAID to AHCI.  Continue to boot into safe mode.  run MSCONFIG again and set to normal boot.  Now reboot computer.  It should now be AHCI ready for ssd.
 2  Shut off everything and unplug all peripherals then install the M.2 card in the empty M.2 slot. (BTW, is there already a screw in the hole on the MB so I can screw down the card after installation) Will I have to open the interior metal "cage" to access the m.2 slot)?
3 Boot back into Windows using the HDD as the boot disk.  Will the SSD be recognized as present and empty?  I hope.
4.  Use the free Intel data migration tool to clone the ssd from the HDD. Shut down.
5 Open up the computer again and unplug the HDD leaving it in place but unplugged from power and sata.
6 Boot up computer.  The SSD should be recognized as the boot disk right? or do I have to do something in Bios?
7 Assuming steps 1-6 work shut down and plug the HDD back in.
8 Boot into windows 10 again the ssd should now be the boot disk.
9.  Format the HDD so I can use it to store old data.
10.  Install faster Samsung driver for SSD.

Now do I smile or cry?  W... Read more

I am trying to setup a Samsung vPro 950 m.2 SSD in a new ThinkCentre M900. The drive is fully installed and operational. It is installed to a PCIe daughtercard and it is achieving its full read/write speed. Windows 10 is installed to this drive. Unfortunately this drive is not visible in the Bios boot order.  The boot process is being handled by the Windows Boot Manager that still resides on the original drive. The Bios is fully updated, FWKT34A (1/12/16). Should I be able to boot to this drive?  What do I need to do to enable this? Anyone have a suggestion?
