I can't find a specific post now but I swear that drive is flagged as incompatible with OSX or OSXI. There are several threads here where it is mentioned as the cause of fail to boot or frequent system crashes. I didn't get far enough in any of them to see if someone found a fix but after five pages in one thread I checked the buyers guide and its not listed. I would return it or buy a different drive unless you you do better with search results than I did.

Samsung PM981 and PM991(commonly found in OEM systems like laptops)
  • Even if PM981 has been fixed with NVMeFix
version 1.0.2 there is still plenty of kernel panics issues

Do you think there is no chance to use it?
NVME Firmware Update? or NUC10 Bios Update?

my problem is that NUC10 not detecting this M.2 SSD
If you cannot see the drive in the BIOS setup screen then the likelihood is that it is either incompatible or defective.

Thank you for your answers.
but my current problem is that it doesn't see the device in NUC10 Bios

how do i fix this situation?
Why do you care if it will cause system crashes. There are posts where users had Windows on that drive and it still caused OSX to crash. If you are planning on just installing windows it should see the drive, if not use the Windows boot drive but change to the trouble shooting menu and from a command prompt run DISKPART. SELECT DISK, then CLEAN. If you can’t see the drive it maybe defective.

I know it's not damaged because it works on other devices. But if it's incompatible I don't know

No, not possible. Do you also realize the NUC10 i7 requires CPU emulation to work? You have to spoof OSX to see it as a Coffee Lake processor and graphics performance suffers. The NUC8 model posts better benchmarks then the 10. No fix for that either.

hello everybody,
Since May 2020, everything was working perfectly, but since a few days I have had the following problem:
after a stop or a standby my Magic keyboard 1 bluetooth is no longer recognised automatically whereas the Magic Keypad works perfectly and is recognised directly.
I have to press and hold down the button on the keypad each time, then when macos asks for it, enter a new code.
I tried to remove the keyboard and reinstall it with no result,
Do you have an idea ?
Thank you for your help.
