The SATA1 connector will be unavailable when a SATA M.2 SSD has been installed in the M2_1 slot.The M2_2 default setting is CPU lane. However, when a PCIe expansion card is installed in the PCI_E2 slot, the M2_2 will be automatically switched to PCH lane.The SATA2 connector will be unavailable when M2_2 uses PCH lanes and a M.2 SATA SSD is installed in the M2_2 slot.M2_2 supports Intel® Optane™ Memory by switching to PCH lanes.
