    Default Asrock X99 Extreme4: possible to boot from Samsung XP941-512G (MZHPU512HCGL)?

    Hi to all,
    I am new to the forum.

    I am thinking about to buy the Ultra M.2_SSD (NGFF) Module Samsung XP941-512G (MZHPU512HCGL), but don't know, whether it is possible to boot from it.

    It is supported:
    ASRock > X99 Extreme4
    but here it's said to not being capable of booting from it:
    Samsung SSD XP941 512GB, M.2 16Gb/s (MZHPU512HCGL) in Festplatten & SSDs: Solid State Drives (SSD) | heise online Preisvergleich
    somewhere else they are saying, it is possible with the right mainboard and bios.

    Anybody can help?

    Hi Achim,

    i have just bought the same 2 items, i will get them on Friday.
    I'm sure you can boot, may be it is a little bit tricky to install the os, see folowing link.

    Asrock Z97 + XP941:

    Hi,
    Im Davis from ASRock HQ TSD.

    We have tested X99 Extreme4 with Samsung XP941 512G, the SSD can be bootable disk.
    We have installed Windows 7 64-bit successfully both of GPT and MBR mode as below configuration.

    Model: X99 Extreme4
    SSD: Samsung XP941 512G
    BIOS: P1.30

    Thank you.

    Dear Olaf and Davis,
    thank you for the good news :)

    @Olaf:
    Enjoy your new system! :) Mine just will arrive tomorrow. Also, I didn't order a XP941, yet. I just was curious. Will put my budget to a new video card but am waiting until 19.9.14 for the pricing of NVIDIA.
    Regards
    Achim
