False. This was true 15 years ago, completely depending on the motherboard.most motherboards can not boot from sata-4 or higher!
"most motherboards can not boot from sata-4 or higher"Since none of you seem very confident in how to install a computer
Most "tech-people" know you can't put an M.2 drive in a SATA connector.First of all! You should always connect your first sata-drive to sata 0, the next to sata-1 and so on.. (In desktops it´s not always easy to se what drive the cable is connected to, so it will help further on)
Second.. The first 4 SATA connectors are supposed to be used for booting drives.. IF you later on attach a M2-drive you might experience issues IF your bootdrive is connected to a sata connector above 4... So therefore the sata 5 and up are not supposed to be used to bootdrives..
Most tech-people does know about this.. Hence the tips I gave above!
That's not what you said though. You said you can't boot from higher numbered SATA ports, which is false.The first 4 SATA-connectors are connected directly to the CPU, the others are connected to the chipset, This might interfere IF you, lets say, connect a M2-drive later on... and YES! it´s always better to use the first 4 (SATA-port 0-3) for boot-drives...
Huh? The first M.2 slot usually disables SATA 0 when in use, so the opposite is true. You're actually giving horrible advice by telling an individual to plug a drive into SATA 0.IF you later on attach a M2-drive you might experience issues IF your bootdrive is connected to a sata connector above 4
Evidence? Everything else you've said is incorrect, so why should I believe you this time?So therefore the sata 5 and up are not supposed to be used to bootdrives..
Doesn't make a difference, if that's even true. The chipset and the amount of lanes available is the real concern, since M.2 slots can disable lower numbered SATA ports. Oops.The first 4 SATA-connectors are connected directly to the CPU
