Selectively enable/disable M.2 drives in the BIOS

Selectively enable/disable M.2 drives in the BIOS
« on: September 13, 2018, 07:42:36 am »
I'm considering building a system comprising either an AMD 2950X  or Intel 9900K cpu.
My current system allows me to set up profiles in the BIOS which include allowing me to selectively disable/enable various SATA storage and boot drives. I'm a developer and have set up various boot drive options incorporating customised installations whereby I can boot into any of these drives and have the other boot drives hidden from the system - it's important that, in the different boot configurations, Windows cannot see the disable drives. This has worked very well for some time. For the new build, I'm now looking at using 2-3 (or more) M.2 (PCIe x4) drives as various boot/storage drives but unfortunately my existing motherboard has not similar enable/disable facility for any M.2 option. 
So my question is: do Gigabyte have any motherboards that would do this for any of these two processors - selectively enable/disable them in the BIOS?
