Could you write which command you run in terminal window?
And then post also output error

 

I deleted away all the EFI, copy the whole of your EFI for 10.12.6, reinstall clover r4097(I can't get a copy of the r4081). and it works now....

 

I have absolutely no ideal what went wrong.... but it is ok now. Many Thanks!!!!!!  :thumbsup_anim:

Hi,

 

I have an Asus x299 delux motherboard which has 2 x M2 slots. I have Samsung 960 pro in each slot.

 

I can see the first one in Mac OS, but not the second one. In BIOS or if I boot to Windows I can see both.

 

Is there anything that needs to be done to show multiple M2 Nvme ?

I booted into Windows 7 & can see the 2 NVMe controllers under device manager. When I select the properties, there is no BIOS device name under details. Is there another way to confirm the APCI paths for them both ?

 

Attached is the general tab showing some location information. Is this enough to work out the APCI path ? Or is there any other property I could use ?

 

 

Attached Files

Win7 does not show BIOS name.
Must use Win10 for that.
Plus you need to look at the "Details" tab.

Thanks Rehabman. Attached is my ioreg using v2.1


According to this ioreg, your second NVMe device is at _SB.PC00.RP21.PXSX.
(the first one you've already done the class-code spoof at _SB.PC00.RP09.PXSX)

Thank You RehabMan !

 

I created a SSDT with that & now I can see both NVMe drives

 

I want to create a RAID 0 with the 2 NVMe and then use CCC to clone my setup onto it.

 

Is it better to set up the RAID using BIOS (Intel Rapid Storage) or to use MAC OS "diskutil appleraid create stripe" to create the RAID ?

Intel/BIOS RAID is not supported, so your only option is Apple software RAID.

So I set up the RAID 0 and the speeds are not double a single SSD. 

 

Before

Write 2000 MB/s,  Read 2300 MB/s

 

After

Write 2850 MB/s,  Read 2690 MB/s

 

Any advice on if this is to be expected or there is a problem. I assumed it would be close to double a single drive

 

Thanks !

You do not need any NVMe patches once converted to 4k cluster size. It just works.
