Anyone try SSD on Socket 7 system yet?

I know people have tried SATA-IDE converters with SATA HDD drives.

Anyone jump right to SSD? Especially since many SSDs are low GB capacities, too.

Old post, but shame on people for not replying to you lol.

Yes!! I’m going to be trying it in the next week or two.

In fact I picked up a pci to pcie16x adapter, and plugged a pcie 16x to m.2 nvme and a 128gb nvme into it. I don’t expect it to be directly bootable. So I will use a boot loader on a compact flash to IDE adapter to boot to which will load the drivers and hand it off to the m.2 which is where I will have windows.

I’m also planning on using a I-ram drive for my page file as I expect the maximum ram my motherboard supports to be insufficient for the craziness I have planned lol

Also, I will have a ssd on a sata 300 from promise on pci
