NVMe drive is not accessible in UEFI mode with Intel Rapid RAID mode on

This document (7023837) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15


SLES can't detect NVMe drives in UEFI mode with Intel Rapid RAID mode on, neither during SLES installation nor after.


The drive can be detected by SLES by either configuring the system BIOS to boot in legacy mode, or by switching the drive to AHCI mode.

For instructions on modifying the system BIOS please see documentation from the manufacturer of the computer.


NVMe drives in UEFI mode with Intel Rapid RAID mode on are not supported in SLES due to an NVMe specification conflict.
