I currently have a MacBook Pro 15" 2015, and am trying to install 960 EVO NVMe 1tb. I found out that I cannot boot Sierra from the NVMe drives, so I want to know what other possibilities I can think of at the moment.
I already have an adapter to overcome the physical incompatibility (http://eshop.sintech.cn/ngff-m2-pcie-ssd-card-as-2013-2014-2015-macbook-ssd-p-1139.html) - all MBP cannot do is, from my knowledge, EFI recognition.
One thing that this laptop is incapable is that this one only has one PCIe slot unlike to the Mac Pro, so booting has to be done through NVMe drive. Is my understanding correct? If this (NVMe in MBP) setup is even remotely possible, I want to know where to start and how to install. Can I use a third party bootloader to boot in real mac systems? I want to know if either Clover or REFIt would work in real mac systems.
How do I prepare the nvme drive for the installation, how do I format it, how would this drive be recognized, or .. etc.
@RehabMan do you know if your patch has anything to do with effecting speeds? I just installed a Toshiba OCZ RD400, its working well, however my write speeds are making out at about 1100, and the Read speeds are over 2000, using x99 asus II on El Capitan, im missing about 500 write speed, either way its still a major improvement over the regular SSD and thank you for your work
