X1 Carbon 6th with 1TB PM981 - firmware update says I have the latest already (4L2QEXA7).
If he is truly using EXA73L2Q, he has a different drive, that firmware string isn't in the Readme.txt for the update.
PM981 crashes the kernel and causes random reboots, unfortunately.
970 Evo drives appear to work and should use the same controller, so it's a bit of a mystery.
The Samsung PM981 crashes macOS regularly.
I intend to put this drive in my desktop and purchase another 1TB for my laptop.
Some SSDs work normally without special hacks in macOS.
Do any also have proper power management, that anyone is aware of?
I believe in the spirit of this rule very much. I have thousands of posts on ****** and Arch Linux forums, I have dedicated years of my life to helping people with technical issues.
However, it feels deeply wrong to make it impossible for users to find each other outside of the forum to discuss...
It looks like this will not work with install to PM981, I am still crashing with your kext and SSDT (edited for my device path).
Please do not find me / contact me outside this forum, as the rules do not permit it.
This is the best SSD on the market right now as far as I can tell, so personally I'm going to sit with Windows and Linux and wait until there is better support (perhaps when the consumer 970 or 980 drives based off this reach market) :)
Right. I've tried contacting Samsung to no avail (also tried an email to samsungsemi.com).
I will try Lenovo as well, but highly doubtful.
The X1 Carbon Gen 6 page from Lenovo has no firmware updates, only a Rapid Storage driver.
Attached is all the information I have on this drive...
