The computer motherboard can only be used if it is above z77 series, including z77 series. Please confirm before buying!
Note that the 2013 version is not necessarily the 2013 version you bought in 2013. The information queried by our store may be wrong. Please be sure to look at the interface of your machine’s hard disk (the number of gold finger pins is 16 + 12).
Apple’s new SSD is a PCI-E 4x interface. The SSD is connected to the computer through the PCI-E 2.0 X4 or X8 or x16 interface (i.e. PCI-E graphics card interface). Please make sure your machine has this interface before purchasing. If not, it can’t be used.
After the SSD with Apple’s new interface is transferred through the computer’s pci-ex4 or X8 or x16 interface, it can be correctly recognized when entering the operating system. Ordinary computers can’t be seen under the BIOS, so they don’t support system startup, unless your computer motherboard BIOS supports PCI-E device startup!
In my test, the z77 motherboard uses the win7 or win8 system installation disk, which can be recognized during installation and can be partitioned. However, after copying the system files, the hard disk cannot be found because there is no PCI-E hard disk option in the BIOS startup item of the machine. This is not a transfer card problem, because the previous machine BIOS does not support PCI-E device startup, Some servers can support startup.
