I'm currently running El Capitan on a Samsung 850 Evo SSD. I did my first build many years back and did it pretty haphazardly (except the hardware part, I did a pretty good job of that side of things). It has trucked along with the occasional problem here and there, but I'm getting to a...
I decided that I will try to build a medium-duty machine (no gaming/intensive job/OC) that can fit into a Mac Mini enclosure to replace my veteran mid-11 MBA. Let's not talk about Mac Mini enclosure for a while (cooling is rather hard XD) but the key components themselves.
I will use this...

PCIe Gen3x4 interface: R/W speed up to 1800/850MB/s
NVMe 1.2 Certified...

I succesfully installed a new Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD thanks to the "class-code spoof" from Rehabman (big thanks to him).
I've just completed the hardware part of my first build. This is the first computer I've built since I put together a Heathkit H-89 to run CP/M, so yes, I'm old. The hardware part went pretty easily, but now I'm stuck in software mud.
I ran MultiBeast per instructions (excellent instructions...

i'm new and I'm planning to build my fist hackintosh, after a few years working in the music production business with a mac. My first question is: Is it possible - I heard its difficult- to boot from a SDD connected with M.2 PCIe 4x? And maybe you can say something about my other parts...
