ssd m.2 not showing

Recommended Posts

File structure looks fine. This is from the AMD guide you linked?

Post # 9 is for M.2 NVMe drive, you mentioned your drive is M.2 SATA SSD right?

Ok, we have established that you want to install to an m.2 Samsung NVMe 960 EVO. The youtube video is old and incomplete.

If you have follow the guide correctly, you'll need the patched kext and SSDT-NVMe-Pcc.aml.

You'll need to determine the path to which your NVMe drive is installed. You'll need windows for that part with the NVMe drive installed.

  1. From Windows, go to Device Manager, go down to Storage Controller and expand.
  2. You should see Standard NVM Express Controller, right click and select Properties.
  3. Then click on Details tab, look for "BIOS device name" under Property. You'll see the path found under "Value".

Are you having problem booting the USB installer or the USB installer is not seeing your NVMe drive?

If the latter, then yes. Once you have created the patch kexts for the version of OS X you're installing + the SSDT-NVME-Pcc.aml added to the installer, NVMe drive should be visible.

You need to copy the patched kext + ssdt-nvme-pcc.aml to the installed drive EFI partition. Make sure to add the ssdt-nvme-pcc.aml to the ssdt sortedorder of the Config file.
