The PCI Express bus enumeration ends with #3 and the NVMe PCIe SSD controller is not listed.



However, a Hwinfo64 report of a comparable board can be found on the Internet.



There, an NVMe PCIe SSD controller is listed in the Bus section (see below) under PCI Express x4.

My HP Pavilion, on the other hand, does not have a PCI Express x4 slot, but it does have a PCI Express x8 slot. According to the Hwinfo64 report of my HP Pavilion notebook, the graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (GP107M) sits in the PCI Express x8 slot. Specified for this graphics card is: x4.



Maximum Link Width:16x


In the Hwinfo64 report of the board used for comparison, the graphics card is attached to the PCI Express x16 bus #1 (see below) as listed in the Bus section, i.e. in the correct place (16 lanes).

In the System Buses section of the SiSoft Sandra report of my Pavilion notebook (see below), there is a warning 1204 at the end. Possibly, the reference there to the higher maximum supported speed is due to the lower number of lanes (8 in the bus instead of 16).

If there is a possibility to disconnect the NVIDIA graphics card electrically, I could unscrew the notebook, do the disconnection and boot the Windows partition (In the default setting, another graphics card is active, after all). The hardware initialization should then assign the NVMe SSD to the correct port, since the NVIDIA graphics card is no longer present.



What could be the reason that the PCI Express x16 Bus is not listed by HWINFO in the BUS section of the HP notebook and why the NVIDIA Graphics card is assigned to the PCI Express x8 Bus of the HP notebook instead of the PCI Express x16 Bus?



Thank you very much.
