    dout it exists you will have to use the second jumper and limit it to 32gb in order to boot to it

    if your using it as a storage,none boot drive just set in first bios screen to none or no drive,the os will find it and use the full 40 gb

    read that as they all allow you to force 32gb on them,you just need a second jumper
