Precision 5810 not recognizing nvme

Hi All,


I've used two nvme/pcie adapters to connect 2 nvme drives (Western Digital Black SN750) onto my motherboard. They are not recognized at all. I've updated BIOS. Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong?

  • these drives are brand new out of the box, do I have to change something in the bios?

    • Cameron Brotherston when I go into the Bios, it sees the nvme drive, but windows doesn't see it. I want to clone my sata ssd to the nvme. 

    • Cameron Brotherston that's the trick.  Boot to your regular sata SSD and then set up the M.2 SSD as a secondary drive.  Then use a cloning software like acronis true image to clone your SATA SSD to the M.2 SSD.  This is one of the tricks that we use to make M.2 SSD's bootable with WIndows 7 because the win 7 load manager rarely recognizes the m.2 SSD's.

    • Jbigticket23 Thank you for your reply. Maybe I cloned it incorrectly. I think my bios settings might be the problem though.

    • Jbigticket23 Thanks for your suggestion. I switched to Acronis True Image, and that did the trick. Much appreciated.

  • Windows recognizes the drive now. The drive works well for storage. Read/write benchmark is where it should be.  It just won't boot. Can anyone confirm what the bios settings should be for a t5810? 

  • switched to Acronis True Image software for cloning, and that did the trick. Solved.
