booting an m.2 SSD (Intel 520) using m.2-to-PCIe adapter?

so I have an Intel 520 m.2 card. It's my OS disk. I am currently using an m.2-to-SATA adapter so I can connect it to my Intel X58 motherboard.

I want to connect it an m.2-to-PCIe adapter so I can free up a SATA port for more storage (RAID).

This is the description for the m.2-to-PCIe adapter: "Adapter card support Socket2 (Gen2) B+M key PCIe x2 M.2 NGFF SSD and Socket3 (Gen3) M key PCIe x4 M.2 NGFF SSD to PCIe x4 "

Is what I want possible? Thanks.
