DL380P G8 - Is Booting into Windows possible via PCIe NVMe SSDs?

The title says it all... I'm running Windows 10 currently, and looking to migrate booting from the original SFF SAS array to an NVMe based, PCIe 3.0 4xM.2 RAID card (ASUS Hyper M.2 X16). In some forums, I've heard you need UEFI support to install a bootable Windows OS onto PCIe NVMe drives, but I've heard conflicting stories as well. Has anyone attempted to use PCIe NVMe as a boot drive for Gen 8 boxes?
