(Please forgive me for my poor English composition.)

I tested three PCIe adapters in Delta.
But nothing works.
Is the PCIe adapter don't working in Delta's M.2 M-key Slot?

I want someone's advice.
Thank you for reading.

Hey Intelis

I’m responding to you here too so the knowledge is shared more. My Delta would not work with any of my previous adapters. The low quality adapters cause some mismatched impedance balance and will not work. You need to use a high quality adapter like ADT Link. This is the recommended adapter by the guy who runs www.eGPU.io

A link to my video about it:

I've just tested the M.2 key-M to PCIe adapter card and with either the GPU card or PCIe-SATA controller.
None of them got detected and from HWINFO64, the PCIe bus (Bus A #0) does not show anything there.

The next step is to try BIOS setting (has to be very careful, can easily brick the Delta board.) Probably will take a while to figure it out (if there is a solution....)
The Delta is more sensitive to the pcie adapter you use. I tried several low quality ones that work with my alpha, but do not get recognized by the delta. In the end, a ADT Link nvme m key to x16 slot adapter worked beautifully. Here is my video on it: https://youtu.be/LMmm2V33cvs
