NVME Boot on Z77

Hi All, not sure if people will care as this is fairly old news and has been covered before.
But thought i would chronicle my experience here so other people with similar hardware can know it works.

I recently modded the BIOS of an asus maximus gene V to support booting from pcie NVME drives. The base version i modded was 1903 which is the latest available from asus for that board.

I did not pioneer this and just used already available information, but i can confirm it works.

The board does not come with any m.2 ports so i had to use an adapter card. And to get it to work i had to disable CSM in the BIOS.

The adapter card was a SilverStone ECM25
And the drive was an ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1TB

This is now the only drive installed in the system with no other workarounds needed.

EDIT: I just realised i posted this in the wrong section, can it please be moved
