Goal

To install macOS Mojave 10.14.6 with Samsung M.2 SSD 970 EVO Plus.


Issue

I have followed UniBeast installation guide, but the installer would not show up.

The images of log with verbose mode are attached as "log-1_1.jpg" and "log-1_2.jpg".

I found "AppleNVMe Assert failed" and "IOReturn IONVMeController::CreateSubmissionQueue" messages in the log, so
I tried removing M.2 NVMe SSD and rebooting.
However, the installer still didn't show up.
Here is the log of this trial.

The log of this trial are attached as "log-2_1.jpg" and "log-2_2.jpg".

Note that 970 EVO Plus needs firmware update, so I updated it.

BIOS

Ver. 2.30

I made the following changes from default setting:

Advanced\Chipset Configuration
VT-d: Enabled -> Disabled
Share Memory: Auto -> 64MB (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-how-to-enable-uhd-630-on-mojave.264327/)

Advanced\Super IO Configuration
Serial Port: Enabled -> Disabled

Advanced\USB Configuration
XHCI Hand-off: Disabled -> Enabled


UniBeast/Clover

UniBeast 9.20
Clover EFI installer v2.4k r4920

I didn't make any modification on config.plist.

Did you update the firmware ?

Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I updated it.

I downloaded "NVMe SSD-970 EVO Plus Firmware" from here and burned it to USB using Rufus on Windows 10.
Then I booted the USB from the machine I wanted install macOS, and I saw the log showing successfully updated the firmware.

Looks remarkably similar to this :

If you use UEFI version 2203 or later the system will hang during the boot of macOS at apfs_module_start:1393. @mattystonnie has created a patch that fixes this.

Wow, that is exactly what I have looked for, totally overlooked.
Following the mentioned guide, I successfully have completed installation of Mojave on NVMe SSD.

Thanks a lot!
