I am researching options for using an NVMe m.2 SSD in my build. I tried to search this thread and got no results on the subject. What I am curious about is if I can use two NVMe m.2 SSDs in RAID 0 to boot Mac OS. I am looking at a couple Gigabyte motherboards, one is the GA-z170x-UD5. In the manual, it states that you can RAID 0 two m.2 SSDs, but doesn't specify anything about NVMe, and of course it says nothing about booting Mac OS.
I get that everyone always says not to use RAID 0 for a boot volume, but my logic says different. A 1TB m.2 NVMe SSD is pretty much double the cost of a 512GB blade. In the unlikely even that your SSD fails, if you have a 1TB blade, you will have to replace it a cost of around $600. If you have two 512GB blades in RIAD 0 and perform regualar backups, you have a replacement cost that is half the price is one blade fails. To me, it makes a lot of sense. Someone please correct me if I am wrong. And please, someone tell me if it works to boot Mac OS!
Haven't figured it out: is it possible to install off UniBeast Sierra on a Plextor m8pegn?
I have tried installing RehabMan's kext created with --spoof on a real MacbookPro, but the drive doesn't show in Disk Utility.
I don't know if it loaded from Clover (that's where I've copied it to). I have also tried copying the kext to /Library/Extensions on the install usb and trying to kextload it from there, after making the filesystem writable. Kext loaded without any messages, but the drive still wasn't displayed.
Does any plist config or patch file need to updated? In the patch script I tried adding a device id I found online, but I think that by default those were ignored anyway, right?
Thanks for any tips that may help
Note: system already running Windows 10, UEFI Bios. Left a NTFS partition free for Sierra.
Clover sees all NVME partitions before starting the installer.
