Hello!
I bought a pc with the Crucial P1 500GB, and I want to know if it will work if I make a partition to install Mac OS on this SSD, or if I need to buy another SSD, like a SATA one.
I have the Intel Core i5-8400, with a Sapphire RX570 Nitro+ and 2x8Gb of Corsair Vengence Lpx 2666mhz, mounted on an Msi B360i Gaming Ac motherboard.
Thank you for yours answers,
Titi

The general recommendation for dual boot is to install Windows and MacOS in separate disks. So you should get another SSD (a SATA one is fine) and install MacOS on that.

To avoid problems you should temporarily disconnect or disable other disks in your system before attempting to install MacOS on your new SSD.

And do you know if it's possible to, let's say if I have a 500Gb SATA ssd, and my Windows installed on the M.2 one, to make a partition, like 300GB Mac OS and use the 200GB left on Windows, to store data and others things?

I would think it should be possible. Say, make 2 partitions using the Disk Utility in MacOS, format and install MacOS on one of them, and then when you are back in Windows you can format the other one using Windows.

I have not done that myself so I can't be sure if it will definitely work. I run MacOS and Windows (7/8.1) on separate computers.

Hi LeTti,
Is your Crucial P1 NVMe well working on your hackintosh? Is it natively detected by your motherboard?
Thank's
