Help with PCIe M.2 SSD with UEFI ROM
I just bought this M.2 SSD https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M08ERD1/ref=as_li_ss_tl?pldnSite=1&linkCode=sl1&tag=justin07c-20&linkId=6a49391363e1697989854fec89bb47a7 - My MOBO (MSI B150 Gaming M3), says it supports PCIe M.2 SSD with UEFI ROM and not Legacy ROM - how can I figure out what type that SSD is. Product listing has no information. Is that SSD going to be compatible with my MOBO. Will it be compatible?
It's compatible. What that's telling you is you must be set to UEFI, without CSM/Legacy support enabled in the BIOS to boot from it. Pretty standard for a modern(ish) board.,
CSM is simply compatibility for older components (pre UEFI). GPUs , OSs etc...... but assuming you're buying modern components (B150, Skylake, 900 series or greater GPU), UEFI should be fine.
