is it possible to use PCIe SSD (like Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 250GB), not over SATA but over PCIe 3.0 4x? From what I found it should be possible even though I might not be able to boot from it which does not matter. Do you agree?
I tried to use Samsung 960 PRO in adapter and first I was able to access it but when I rebooted it was not recognized at all, meaning it does not show up in lspci, both in OpenWRT and Ubuntu. I checked it in PC and it works flawlessly. I noticed this in dmesg:
