Hi everyone, so I've been trying out all the SSD NVMe kext from RehabMan and the older ones, but nope, my Mac OS Sierra still isn't showing up the m2 SSD drive.

I decided to install Sierra onto the HDD in the drive (named SierraHDD) and I'm making this post from this OS right now.

After installation, I managed to clone the whole HDD onto the plextor m8pegn m2 SSD (done using Windows 10 + Macrium Reflect, as the m2 SSD shows up in Windows 10 with all the motherboard drivers installed).

Windows boots fine on the plextor m8pegn m2 SSD - but this copy of SierraHDD on the SSD (which I named SierraSSD), is unable to boot - the Apple logo turns into the FAIL NO ENTRY icon after loading about 30%.


So I've come to the conclusion that as of this moment, plextor m8pegn m.2 m2 SSD pcie , does not work on Sierra Hackintosh + RehabMan Kext.

If you have ideas or have the same hardware, and would like to take part in the discussion on enabling this device in Mac OS Sierra, feel free to write back.

Oh wow, it's RehabMan :) thank you for taking the time to write back on this post!

Yes I have HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_1.kext installed, but unfortunately, no plextor m8pegn m2 SSD in Disk Utility.

I assume you deleted /S/L/E/IONVMeFamily.kext?
Is the md5 of HackrNVMeFamily_10_12_1.kext/Contents/MacOS/HackrNVMeFamily correct?

If so, I assume incompatibility of Pike's NVMe patches with your NVMe hardware.

Yes I have since removed /S/L/E/IONVMeFamily.kext after creating the HackrNVMeFamily_10_12_1.kext with it.

Code:
Jessicas-iMac:MacOS jessica$ md5 HackrNVMeFamily

MD5 (HackrNVMeFamily) = 291b7e63764598ac8052c8a363964cb8
How would I be able to tell if it's correct?


Do you recommend I repeat the process, by restoring IONVMeFamily to vanilla, then run your patch again, and install the newly generated HackrNVMeFamily kext?

Thanks for your time, it'll be great to know that the Plextor m8pegn m.2 SSD is truly incompatible hardware and not me failing to patch correctly.

Hi
Any update? I have the same Plextor NVMe SSD and the same problem.
HackrNVMeFamily loads, Apple SSD Controller is visible under System Raport / NVMExpress, but Plextor is not.

Got myself today Plextor M8PeY PCI-E 256Gb SSD
I thought i'm stuck with no working solution for osx, but then i've discovered that NVMeGeneric.kext works pretty well if you decide to stay at El Capitan

Also having troubles with this m.2 device. Didn't try patching on 10.12.3 yet, but this is what I see in IORegistryExplorer:
