I have an Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i3BNH/B Series. when a "1 Tb" NVMe Drive is connected/Inserted in PCI M.2 Slot as a secondary Drive, I have no problem in booting the device through the SATA Interface from the Primary Drive.
BUT I just bought a 2 Tb NVMe(M.2") and when it is connected as Secondary Drive Inserted to the same PCI Slot, the Nuc won't boot, it gets stuck on the Intel Nuc logo, without being able to even go to the Bios.
Of course the latest bios is installed, I'm very Disappointed with this situation...
3. Use the Windows key + X keyboard shortcut to open the Power User menu and select Disk Management.
· If you don't see the 2TB NVMe drive in Disk Management, press Action in menu and then Rescan Discs.
Hope this helps
P.S. Your NUC will be much faster if you will use this M.2 MVMe drive as a primary System drive, instead of using the SATA drive for this task. However, you need to move all your system and programs to the NVMe drive
I agreed with your reply for my query,
But the issue I was facing is a quite different..
My O.S drive is the sata interface drive 2.5" and the problem is , I was connected a NVMe 2TB capacity drive M.2 to PCIe slot for extend the storage volume .
According to my knowledge whatever the drive we are connecting as a secondary, O.S should boot from the SATA Interface which I was connected as a primary drive and in the BIOS...Boot menu priority is SATA .
I have gone through your instructions as you mentioned .. but i was stuck the at 2nd step it self.
i agreed with this
using a SATA drive as a system drive and MVMe drive as a data drive is wrong decision. You can use the M.2 drive for System and Data as well. The old SATA drive you may use for Data only..
Using a SATA drive as a system drive and MVMe drive as a data drive is the requirement for me.
according to my suspect , NUC`s will support only upto 1TB . if i am wrong just give me the instructions , how to resolve this.
Hi Manideep Abbireddy,
Hi Leon ,
Yeah, SATA is in the first boot priority, even though it's not booting from the system drive...
What might be the issue?.. I will try with another vendor drive which Intel validated.
If it's booting with the other vendor drive , it might be the issue from vendor specific ..
Can you confirm
what was the SATA and PCIe/NVMe SSD's higher storage compatibility for the NUC's?
Whether the NUC's will support the up to 2TB capacity or not??
