    Hello guys, I tried installing StoreMi Beta 2.0 version. I have three disks: a 2 Tb SATA HDD, one SATA 500 Gb SSD (the Windows OS drive) and one 256 Gb M.2 SSD (not NVMe). I want to use the HDD as the source and the 256 Gb M.2 SSD as the cache SSD.

    The problem is that i receive an error message: StoreMi is unable to support this motherboard's SATA source HDD and SATA cache SSD attachment. Using an NVMe SSD for the cache is supported.

    Now i read the FAQ and the Instalation Guide but it doesn't say that it doesn't support M.2 SATA SSD, so I thought it will work.

    What are me options besides buying another SSD?

    Did you guys used this option and it worked? And if it worked how did you make it work?

    Is there a BIOS option I should change?

    My PC has a Ryzen 2700X, MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max motherboard, 16 Gb of Ram.

    Thank you.

    Have you already fixed this issue? I've solved this problem only by buying and installing a nmve SSD, such as the error message suggest to us. I think it's a specific limitation of b450 chipset.
