Currently i'm running into a lot of kernel panics and issues (maybe) due to my Intel 600p NVMe ssd . I heard intel's NVMe ssd is causing a lot of problem for hackintosh build. So now I'm now planning to change my m.2 SSD , so I searched up on the internet for help , I get mixed review about SATA and PCI-e m.2 SSD for hackintosh laptop build.

My question is:

  1. (Assuming that I don't care about read/write speeds) I got mixed review about NVMe running into issues on hackintosh, to be safe , is it a good choice to switch to M.2 mSATA SSD?

  2. What is the reliability on M.2 mSATA ssd on hackintosh? Will it cause any kernel panic or other problems(like my Intel SSD that is causing a lot of issues) ?

  3. What are your recommendations for buying a new ssd??

No such thing as M.2 mSATA. mSATA is one form factor, M.2 another.

I assume you mean M.2 SATA.
M.2 SATA has better compatibility and better power management than NVMe. So, if you don't need the speed of NMVe, M.2 SATA is a good choice.

Unfortunately for you, the last M.2 SATA I purchased was a Samsung EVO.
I cannot recommend anything I have not actually purchased.
Perhaps you should refer to the Buyer's Guide.
