Note: NVMe 2242 M-Key MakerDisk SSD 512GB, 256GB, and 128GB shipped from 1st January 2024 onwards are loaded with the latest Raspberry Pi OS (64-bit) - Bookworm (release date: 5th December 2023). We have tested all capacities of MakerDisk NVMe 2242 with this PCIe HAT and Raspberry Pi 5, and they all work.


Note: The bootloader of Raspberry Pi 5 needs to be updated to Version: 30de0ba5 – 2024/01/5 to enable the NVMe driver and boot from it.  Please refer to this tutorial to update the bootloader of Raspberry Pi 5. Of course, you will need a microSD card to do that.


This PCIe HAT series unlocks the true potential of the Raspberry Pi 5 by leveraging its new PCIe interface. This innovative add-on board transforms your Raspberry Pi into a high-performance computing powerhouse, thanks to its compatibility with NVMe M.2 SSD.
