    Hi,

    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?

    Thank you

    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:

    [    3.635071] PCI host bridge /cpn-110-master/pcie@0x600000 ranges:
    [    3.641201]    IO 0xf9000000..0xf900ffff -> 0xf9000000
    [    3.646365]   MEM 0xf6000000..0xf6efffff -> 0xf6000000
    [    3.652896] armada8k-pcie f2600000.pcie: Link not up after reconfiguration
    [    3.659859] armada8k-pcie f2600000.pcie: PCI host bridge to bus 0000:00

    Here is whole dmesg pastebin. I noticed that some other people have this problem, maybe this is related fix? https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/10146687/

    Finally solved it. The SSD is not detected during boot but the pci can be re-scanned.
    echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/rescan
