S2600WT Nvme SSD setup (m.2 via PCIe Riser card and other possibilities)

Hello everyone,

I just got a S2600WT (WTTR) based server and am missing only storage to set it up and running.

I am searching for the best speed option for storage so I was looking into how to setup m.2 Nvme SSD (no raid needed). No m.2 ports on board, I have 2 PCIe riser cards with 5 PCIe slots total (mostly 8x slots).

So I have a few questions:

- can I plug the PCIe to NVME m.2 adapter to a PCIe Riser and put my m.2 nvme drive into pcie adapter m.2 slot? Will it work, bootable or not?

- is there any other way to have a nvme m.2 ssd connected - i found it's possible via a2u44x25nvmedk but I'm looking for a simpler way to connect only 1 drive, later possible 1 more but that one can be regular 2.5 SATA or SAS SSD

- USB 3.2 is on the board, maybe nvme enclosure with 3.2 or 3.1 usb interface it is in thory going up to 1000 MBps (more like 800 in reality), would that option be bootable?

- if m.2 Nvme is not an option or is too complicated to setup - what would be the other fast option, maybe to consider SAS u.2 nvme and hot to connect?

Thank you in advance and much appreciated.
BR,
Tsutomu
