Is it necessary to disable the SATA/AHCI setting in bios for Skull and Hades when running NVMe drives as boot drives to get full potential of the NVMe drive?
I have a Skull which has been running fine with a 960 evo with SATA/AHCI in bios disabled.
I've just purchased a Hades and installed windows on 970 Evo plus and noticed SATA/AHCI is enabled in bios.
SATA settings don't matter; NVMe drives completely ignore the SATA lane available in the M.2 connector. What is important for NVMe support is the enabling and use of UEFI boot (including use of GPT file system).
