what kext did you use and was it bootableThis is my experience so far with this driver, and I'm running Yosemite 10.10.5 on X99 Deluxe i7 5960X. I boot up to my desktop and I'm using my Samsung XP941(AHCI) m.2 on my PCI-e extension card, Then instal my Samsung 950Pro nvme to my m.2 slot bouts to my desktop and I wasn't recognize not where in OS X, but as soon as I crack open kext wizard and install the kext, a pop up message of TIME Machine asking me to use the new drive was available. So I have full access to my Samsung NVMe 950Pro M.e version of SSD. I haven't test if will be able to be bootable. I will use CCC to test and post later results.

Hello. i like to buy toshiba ssd (THNSN5512GPU7 ) next week. Mac pro 4.1 High sierra. You use with oem or hackintos?Is there a tutorial anywhere for how to boot from NVME on High Sierra using the new drivers it comes with? thanks
edit couple weeks later: I found out that NVME works out of the box on Sierra using SSDs that support 4096 bytes block size (not Samsung those are fixed 512 bytes) so got a THNSN5512GPU7 a great MLC drive and used OZC SSD utility to format it to 4096 and all good on Sierra don't need to use High Sierra after all
Problem with that article is that it doesn't follow current guidelines for using patch_nvme.sh.Coming in late on this topic early 2018 I found this article took out some complexity on Sierra 10.12.6: https://nickwoodhams.com/getting-your-nvme-ssd-working-on-macos-sierra-10-12-2/
Following it enabled a Samsung 960 EVO M.2 500GB on GIGABYTE GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 microATX.
