Holy balls! Which SSD is that? :D You have a crapload of them in your signature. :)))

C'mon guys stop making show off  :P How do you get those speeds :thumbsup_anim: What kind of hack are you using? :hysterical:

 

are you both using PCI Adapter or directly installed on motherboard?

Using PCIe adapter in a 4x PCIe slot nothing else, no hack needed. Sometimes the on-board slot uses only 1x speed which looks like what yours is using. get a cheap $10 PCIe adapter.

1. Put it in /usr/bin/ as /usr/bin/mojave2core
2. Clover boot to single user mode with -s

 

Terminal command:

 

3. /sbin/mount -uw /
4. mojave2core

 

mojave2core.zip

 

 

 

Thanks for this mojave2core which worked up to beta 10, but beta 11 (18A389) broke it.

Do you have any new update for this ?

At present only replaced by 10.13.6's plugin can work at beta 11 (18A389) in my hackintosh of E8400 or X9650 (LGA775 MB).

Works here with Q5-mojave2core/mojave2core on 18A389.

Actually, my motherboard says 1 x M.2 x4 Socket 3 (32Gb/s M.2 x 4 Support) but I think this is not right in reality. :thumbsdown_anim:

What mobo? Do you have any other PCIe devices installed? If so what slots?

My mobo on my signature. These are the slots I use. All other slots are empty.

This new version worked at HFS+ partition, but easily got reboot during or after booting to desktop at apfs partition. I don't know why !

 

I use HFS+ only, never use APFS(only test). I can't help you.:(

You can change this setting to try.

Check BIOs settings because your manual says:

The M.2 shares SATA mode with SATA Express. Change this item before installing M.2 SATA devices. Default setting is SATA Express

Onboard Devices Configuration > M.2 and SATA Express Mode Configuration > M.2

Hi Guys,

Today after switching from macOS High Sierra to macOS Mojave, after writing the new name in my ssd I saw the following files in the list, and I don't know what they are, but before emptying my trash is better to ask... 

The same file was in my other ssd with Mojave.

installer.failurerequests

installer.failurerequests 2

I read the manual over and over again. My SATA Express ports are empty. But when change SataExpress to M.2 I cant never boot. But I didn't remove the device first. I think just like you said first I must remove NVME >Change Bios Settings to M.2>Shut Down>Install device again>Start.  I will try that then share the result. We will see what will happen. 

 

 

Edit: I used that setting a very long time and I remember what happen the change this setting on BIOS. I also tried again just like you said. Here it is what happening after change this setting; when you change this setting to M.2 machine restart itself 2 times and change this setting to SataExpress Automatically. You can't set up this setting to M.2. Default Setting is the right setting for NVME.

After trying the command you provided, it didn't work, but I realized that all the contents are visible, as you could see in the photos attached...

If the volumes name is macOS Mojave

Copy and paste this command in terminal

sudo chflags hidden /Volumes/"macOS Mojave"/installer.failurerequests

Dear Telepati,

 

M.2 is a connector type, like USB-C is a connector type, it has nothing to do with speed. Your EVO drive is NVME, but you are trying to run it in a SATA slot, so you will have to settle for the slower SATA speed.

Thanks to info. But how to other people getting almost full speed? They are using the onboard socket just like me. should I use my NMVE with PCI adapter for speed?

I tried onboard and adapters and got the same speed. So I use one of the onboard sockets now. My mobo has 3 onboard sockets and came with an adapter (Gigabyte Aorus 9 (X299)) so I use the one that's fastest and has best airflow. I only have one GPU though, and no other PCIE devices and the i9 7900 has heaps of spare whossnames.

I have similar issue with my MB (z97, older than yours). I'm using a PCIe adapter in one PCIe3.0 slot and it's running ok. It should be PCIe3.0x4 as minimum for full speed

I suppose there are some options:

 

1.) Sell the drive and get a SATA type NVME SSD to replace it. (Your EVO is PCI-e type) This way you will not have the issue nagging at you.

2.) If you have an empty PCIe slot, get an adapter and go that route. These are not terribly expensive, but you might have to skip buying lunch for a few days. This also frees up your M.2 slot.

3.) Get a new motherboard that has M.2 connectors that are PCI-e based instead of SATA based.

4.) Shrug and just live with it as is, and do not let it bother you late at night.

 

I am trying not to dump salt into a wound, but this is the score I get using the test suite Pavo is using on a Gigabyte Z370 series motherboard with i5 cpu and pci-e based M.2 connectors:

edit:

 

p.s. For what it is worth, I read somewhere that if your motherboard's temperature sensors are not acting right and are reading hot, the mother board will throttle the NVME drives to keep the temperature cooler. I do not know how to replace those very easily if they are malfunctioning.

Hey @telepati, I don't know if you already told this, or if someone already asked you, but...do you have the last UEFI/BIOS version?

 

Yes, I have the latest BIOS v3802.

Here is the weird thing coming; My board specification says it supports both SATA & PCIE mode.

 

1 x M.2 x4 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (both SATA & PCIE mode)

 

Or am I interpreting this sentence incorrectly?

 

@surfinchina @jerryy2 @DocXavier

 

are you all getting the same score for each test?

 

Here are my 5 test results in a row;

1) 1560MB W 2100MB R

2) 700MB W 2150MB R

3) 350MB W 2185MB R

4) 1537MB W 2150MB R

5) 1532MB W 2085MB R

 

 

This EVO is my boot drive and its APFS. is it possible the test without format on windows? I tried with Samsung Magician and CrystalDiskMark, but it does not allow.

 

Also, I don't get it why I am not choosing M.2 on BIOS? When I try to choose it always turning SataExpress automatically after restart.
