M.2 stands for Next Generation Form Factor which is invented for PCI-SIG by Intel and it is developed for flat and high-efficiency equipment such as Ultrabook™ or Tablet PCs. It is a natural transition from the Mini Card and Half Mini Card to a smaller form factor in both size and volume which supports multiple function add-in cards/modules including: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, global navigation satellite systems, near field communication, Hybrid digital radio, wireless gigabit alliance (WiGig), wireless wide area network and solid-state storage devices. Also adds functionality to USB 3.0, display Port, SDIO and SSD-PCIe


M2P4A adapter enables PCIe base M.2(NGFF) SSD as a HDD Card for desktop PC. 
M2P4A design for M.2(NGFF) SSD.

 Boot from M.2 SSD storage.


We successfully installed the system through M2P4A Samsung SSD, and the success of the boot.
Operating platform follows:
CPU: Intel® Pentium® Processor G3258
MB: ASROCK Z97 Killer
OS: Windows 8.1 64bit
Adapter : M2P4A
SSD Hard Drive: Samsung XP941-128G M.2(NGFF) PCIe x4 SSD

Most Z97 chipset can support boot with PCIe’s storage.
You can simply install the OS but chose the M.2 storage.
The chose setup BIOS to boot from it.


    Note:


    Because z97’s BIOS is UEFI BIOS, make sure you boot from “UEFI: your storage name”.


  • If you use generic’s USB dongle to install your OS, then you need to choose “UEFI: generic storage”.
  • If you use CD ROM to install your OS, please choose “UEFI: WDC WD10EARS-OOMVMBO”
