I didn't know that. Need to have a look!
Nevertheless, I am using a PCI-express adaptor, not the m.2 port on the MoBo. And somehow it worked without a problem until I installed clover to the M.2.
Right, you said that in an older post. Since we're talking Z97 then I don't know for sure. How are the 1TB storage drives different than the SSD? Just the presence of an EFI partition? What if you mark the EFI partition on the SSD as a different kind of partition and/or rename the EFI folder on the EFI partition on the SSD?

This was my thinking also, somehow I think I should delete the additional "boot-devices" confusing the bios.
I will give it a try when I don't need the machine so urgently! Need to complete few projects, and don't want the problems before I am done :)

Booting 10.11.6 using RehabMan's patched kext with a 950 PRO 512GB. Flawless! 2.4GB/s read, 1.5GB/s write.
Using it with the OS X installer also worked well.

Has anyone found an temperature monitor that works with NVMe?

firstEncounter where did you put RehabMans Patch to allow you to boot from the 950 Pro ?
I have mine working well but booting from an EFI on a SSD.
The HWMonitor from Clover works well for me for temps etc.
Thank you
I simply put the HackrNVMeFamily kext in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11/ folder.

Intel 750 owner here with 2.5" drive. Is using U2/M2 rather than pci-e slot any more problematic, and does the drive also boot quite slow like on Windows? Was also wondering how harsh the performance penalty is, considering the drive seems to be near spec speed on Windows without the Intel nvme driver.

There is a Clover patch for external icons, but you can also fix it by adding an ACPI identity for the PCI device (a bit advanced).
