Are you guys just having this problem on Sierra? Im about to do a build with an M.2. 970 Evo plus 1TB in a Z390 M mATX motherboard and i don't wanna do the same mistake. Im planning on running it as a music production build with a gc titan ridge for thunderbolt compatibility and on macOS MOJAVE. :)

Hi there,

I have just received my Samsung 970 EVO Plus (500GB) today - last firmware from factory.
Fresh install of macOS Mojave (10.14.2) on it without any problem. Since then, no crash or reboot at all. I will keep you informed of any problem.

How did you do the firmware update? I can't get it to boot from the USB and it sounds like you need a windows installation to even booth the firmware ISO from the USB. I'm debating installing Windows on a partition on my main drive just so I can install this damn firmware update lol.

I had the same problem to start with, ie wouldn't boot the USB stick.
The quickest way I found was to just reset the BIOS to Optimised Defaults - after saving the current settings of course.
It then booted the USB firmware updater just fine.
After the update I went back into the BIOS and restored my old settings.
Nice and easy really.
