    Default Booting from PCI-e

    I'm looking at getting an OCZ revo drive, but I can't seem to find anything that confirms I'm able to boot off PCI-e on my motherboard manufacturers website.

    I'm looking at getting the OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX.

    Newegg.ca - OCZ RevoDrive OCZSSDPX-1RVD0080 PCI-Express x4 80GB PCI Express MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    My mobo is the Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H

    GIGABYTE GA-MA780G-UD3H (Rev. 1.0) | Emaplaadid - Specification

    Is is highly likely that the board is able to boot from pci-e, or is it pretty risky and should not be done unless you know for sure that you can do it?

    I would say it's a pretty safe bet that you should be able to boot from it. It's not so much whether you can boot off of PCIe, but rather whether the RevoDrive has a bootable controller. Assuming that others are booting from it, then you'll be able to as well.

    I'm in the same boat. Reading the OCZ forums for compatibility is not very helpful as they only have 4 manufacturers MSI, ASUS, EVGA and Gigabyte. I know that AsRock is made by ASUS but that doesn't help much considering that they don't have the same p/n. As far as assuming that it will work on most mobo's it a bad idea, mostly because most boards do not support pci-e boot capability.

    I am using an AsROCK Penryn1600SLI-110dB. I want to buy one of the OCZ Revodrives any insight would be much appreciated.
