So far, only Windows 10 is supported for NVME RAID boot on Threadripper. Is there driver support planned for Windows 7 or 8?
Windows 7 does not have native NVMe support, and Windows 8 is dead and doesn't support firmware upgrades of NVMe drivse, so most likely no.
Gotta love Microsoft, convince everyone you can only get things in Windows 10 then quietly slip them in to 7...
I am running Windows 7 on NVME 1.3 970 Evo Plus with Asus Prime X470 Mobo and it is running very well; just had to load the NVME driver manually upon installing Windows 7 otherwise it would not have seen the drive.
The X470 has a second M.2 NVME slot (albeit only with Pcie 3.0x2 lane speeds) so i am thinking of Creating a NVME Raid and somehow restore my Windows 7 onto that.
Any chance of succeding with that or is is more likely to fail ?´Besides, the pcie 3.0x2 seems quite a bottleneck and probably would could worsen the overall troughput.
