Martin said:Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean with "installing". Is that related to installing the driver for it, or physically installing the drive into slot ?
Anyway, without a driver for the NVMe it's not possible to detect it. This would require low-level direct HW-access to the drive and such method could cause problems.
Martin said:No. A driver requires the device to be present and communicate with it. Otherwise to what would be the driver talking, air inside the empty socket?
Martin said:Sorry, but I don't understand the point of needing something like this.
Anyway, such an emulation of hardware devices would be possible only under virtual machines. But I doubt anyone would be willing to do something like that.
