Customer FAQ

Q 1 .   Is the PEXM2-SSD compatible with the Samsung 850 EVO M.2?
Answer: No. PEXM2-SSD doesn’t support SATA Based M.2 SSD module such as Samesung 840/850 EVO M.2.
Q 2 .   I am using a Samsung 950 PRO -Series PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD on Windows 7 - 64bit system. I can’t seem to get it working. Any suggestion?
Answer: Microsoft added native support for NVMe to Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and later. Native drivers for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 have been added in updates: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2990941/en-us The other option is to install Samsung NVMe Driver driver from the following link: http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/support/downloads.html
Q 3 .   Will this product use all 4 pci-e lanes or is it just wired to use 2 lanes?
Answer: PEXM2-SSD use all 4 PCIe lanes.
Q 4 .   Can it be used along with a NVMe SSD for boot drive on Windows 7 64 bit system?
Answer:

The NVMe native driver for Windows 7 is available from Microsoft Knowledge Base (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2990941). You will need to download the Microsoft NVMe native driver to get it to work. As for a boot drive, it depends on your system or motherboard BIOS. If your system BIOS is able to recognize NVMe SSDs, you can make it as a boot drive.  The NVMe native driver is built-in on Windows 10 and 8.
