Curiosity got the better of me.

I got a NVME as it was only a bit more than a SATA so tried it.

I didnt need to enable UEFI oprom, I only needed to make sure its booted in UEFI mode, and UEFI mode doesnt require UEFI oprom to be forced. So I can still use MBR usb sticks.

So the only requirement is that any OS that needs to access the m.2 NVME device has to be booted in UEFI mode. It doesnt require "uefi only" oprom.

With microsoft's nvme driver apparently broken (No FUA support?) I couldnt get a working nvme RST driver because intel seemingly have abandoned win 8.1 completely. So I am using samsung's nvme driver.

It bench's extremely fast but real speed is currently slower, slower boot, slower shutdown, slower system tray load up after login.
