I'm looking for a way to use an msata ssd (such as the crucial m4 msata
) in an older Intel x48 based PC. Does such a PCIe card exist? The only thing I've been able to find is this card
, but it's limited to PCIe x1. Would such a card allow me to use msata HDDs on the X48 motherboard? Or is it pretty much trial and error? Any chance I'd be able to boot from it?
Edit: Cheapo version of PCIe sata card controller from Newegg
Edit 2: Perhaps something like this
would be a safer bet, using SATA II port...
Anyone have any experience with either of these solutions?
