Hi!

Anyone have luck with Samsung PM1725a NVME SSD?
I've tried both U.2 and PCI-E versions, kernel simply hangs during boot.
I've tried to reformat it with different sector sizes, but no luck.

OS: Mojave 10.4.3
Hardware: Asus X299 Deluxe

Hi,

If you want the NVMe to work there are a number of issues you need to resolve first, the most important of which is the format of the drive AND the availability of the macOS NVMe driver.
Please refer to this thread for more info: link

I've already have working NVME (with HGST drives). Intel, HGST works, but samsung crashes kernel during boot.

Are you a Dell OEM? It seems to be supported after 10.14.5. Is it convenient for you to try it?

No luck, my friend, it still hangs at boot (10.14.6). I've tried U.2 disk (seems that this is SUN OEM drive, but it doesn't have any labels except standard samsung label).

Hello,

I have the same bug (not kernel panic but freezes) with a Samsung PM1733 U.2. Any ideas?

Thanks.
