Hello, tploopy. Thank you very much for sharing your issue with the Intel Communities Team. I will be more than glad to assist you.
In this type of configurations, the most important thing is that the Motherboard and the BIOS has an m.2 slot that supports SSD. I recommend you to double check the specification of the motherboard you would like to use and make sure it supports m.2 SSD.
It is worth mentioning that what determines if a system supports an m.2 SSD is not the processor but the motherboard and the BIOS.
