I'm trying to install Samsung PM983 3.84Tb SSD (MZ4LB3T8HALS-00003) using a generic NVME to PCIe adapter. Tried it on Dell Precision T7610 and on a PC with Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H motherboard. In both cases, the BIOS does not recognize the drive and it's not shown in Samsung Magician. Tried different PCIe slots and adapters with the same result. Any help appreciated!
Hi ddaniel51, thanks you for your response! I agree that both systems I tried the drive in are a bit old. So I tried it in Dell Precision T5810, manufactured in 2018, with the same result. Is there a list of systems/controllers that this drive supports? What does a system need to this drive to function?
Thanks for the suggestion, ddaniel51! I followed it and found the solution. PM983 MZ4LB3T8HALS-00003 is an M.3 drive, not M.2, so it requires an M.3 to PCIe adapter which looks the same as M.2 but is electrically different..
