Is there anyway to get 2 NVMe drives working in 10.12.6? I have a Hynix PC300 which works and am now trying to add an EVO 970. If I boot into 10.13, both drives are available although I don’t want use 10.13 as it breaks Adobe CS6.
I have cloned my system hd to the EVO 970 and am using the hacker kext I created using ReHabMan's script and that works but Hynix drive is missing.
I can boot using Hynix in 10.12.6 with no mods, however the EVO drive is missing. Is there anyway to have them both co-exist?

Not if one is 4k and the other is 512 byte LBA.
Purchase/install matched/supported NVMe devices and it works fine.

The Hynix works fine without any patch although I always saw disk alignment errors in Clover boot. The Evo 970 works fine with the patch and no disk alignment errors in boot... and is much quicker. I may sell the Hynix on Ebay or stick in my Supermicro X9 buid. Thanks for the help.
