And a small note:
I installed one of these cards:
“dodocool PCI-E Express Card with USB 3.1 and Type-C Ports 15-Pin ConnectorSuperSpeed Gen II (10 Gbps) for Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 Linux Kernal”
Purchased from Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C59TB0I/?tag=tonymacx86com-20
The speed of the Type C port is really good however on this old system, old BIOS the card is not fully initialized until the OS is up and running; meaning I could not boot an SSD that was attached via SATA to Type C adapter. Where as on current UEFI tech system the same SSD set up was bootable and the speed was very good.
UEFI BIOS brings faster boot speed and new hardware support. BUT, as your know, I have an old GA-P67A-UD3-B3 mb, gigabyte website gives UEFI bios as version U1d. I found the UEFI bios have a bug: the pcie 4x will work down to 1x with the UEFI bios(it works 4x with F9 legacy bios) (NOTE: my all pcie 1x are empty)
May have any advice about this problem?
