s4e is best!!!
This is XP SP3 on nvme Optane 32 GB
without Bios modding, cool.
For this I make with Aomei a copy of the harddisk to the optane drive,
after recognicing optane nvme.
Then I make a bit to bit copy of the optane drive with Winhex and store it as optane.dat.
This optane.dat I copy also bit by bit to an USB 3 stick.
Shut compi down.
Now only the USB stick is connected and the optane drive.
During USB boot, the stick looses contact because no usb files for boot on it
and blind;)) XP takes the nvme optane drive, because 100% identic with the USB stick,
just all, mbr, partition, a clone. Before boot ends I disconnect the USB 3 stick.
Boottime all together is few seconds.
PS: This XP feels incredible fasssssstt..
I just run Cinebench, 3Dmark2001, prime95 on the optane drive all together at the same time and music video from Youtube,
Amazing stable, I like this board a lot !
To install new software on the nvme disk is not so easy, because its counterpart on USB stick has not.
