P45 Express BIOS update

Jump to solution

I would like to update my current P45 Express Bios, to be able to boot from an SSD installed in a PCIe slot on the motherboard. Can anyone please help to provide me with info on how to do that, and where to get the update firmware? I am using W7Ultimate on a Asus Maximus II Gene M/board.

What kind of SSD are you referring to? How is this SSD interfacing with the PCIe bus? Please provide specifics (including part numbers for drives and cards used to facilitate this).

If this is a PCIe/NVMe SSD, then you are out of luck. NVMe requires PCIe 3.0 support and your board only has PCIe 2.0. You will not be able to get a BIOS for this board that supports NVMe boot.
