I ran into a big obstacle trying to boot from Samsung 960 pro on a Supermicro X9Dai,
the partition simply doesn't show up in the clover bootmanager (funny enough though,

I started upgrade my hackintosh project by adding a m.2 500 GIG Samsung NVMe SSD.
Finding all the right tips and info to make the installation work is quite a bit of work. After doing
some research I got the USB thump made and was able to install the Sierra OS on my m.2 SSD.
Now I have the...

I've had a thread on MacRumours for the last few days trying to figure out whether I would be able to use an M.2 PCIe SSD in a late 2013 MacBook Pro as a boot drive and also benefit from NVMe performance, and it turns out that there are only a few SSD's that work with each...

Would this beast work as a hackintosh once NVIDIA Pascal drivers are available for macOS?
Intel Core i7-6700 quadcore, NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB, M.2 & SATA-3, 2 RAM slots… all packed into a silent (watercooled) compact black box (22. 5 × 20.3 × 12.8 cm). What a monster!

Hi guys, I just bought a new samsung M.2 drive, the sm961 to be precise.. I've used M.2 drives since a while now, and never stomped across this message, I'm trying to install Sierra 10.12.2 (which I already have not long ago in another sm950 I had) with the regular procedure (KextToPatch patch...
I'm working on my first Hackintosh build, thanks to this website and forum. Its been a pretty awesome experience so far. When I was a kid I wanted to build robots and play with laser beams. Building my own computer comes sort of close this. Sort of. Anyway....

For years I have been dealing with poor hard-drive performance on my Gax58ud3r. I only get around 200 mbps write and 300 read. I have been reading up on the Samsung m.2 drives and pcie adapters. So far it only looks like they make a pcie 3 adapter and my mobo is pcie 2. Are those adapters...

Hi everyone, so I've been trying out all the SSD NVMe kext from RehabMan and the older ones, but nope, my Mac OS Sierra still isn't showing up the m2 SSD drive.
I decided to install Sierra onto the HDD in the drive (named SierraHDD) and I'm making this post from this...
For M.2 PCIe SSD, the Buyer's Guide recommends the Samsung SM951 but these are really hard to find and the available ones are hella-expensive. Alternatively, there are the Samsung 950 Pro which are available and reasonably priced (for what they are). The note on the BG says that "M.2 SSDs may...
Upon rebooting, I go into my bios.
In my bios, I go to boot priorities and see that I have many options within boot option number 1, all but 1 with the exact same name: UEFI: Samsung SSD 850 EVO M.2 500GB, Partition 1 (see picture)
Every time I restart my computer, it seems like for some...
So I have spent the past couple days trying to get to an install screen using various methods and guides for x99 systems. I originally was trying to get El Capitan but that was a lost cause so I tried Yosemite. I somehow got to an install screen, got Yosemite installed on my drive, but it...
