Yeh until it reboots. My system was never stable whilst it was installed. Glad you got it working for you.

It‘s hard to install, but I've got it, and it's running steadily without reboot

Could you share how you install it?
It kept restarting while installing and never completed.

Would be nice to know the steps you followed, I just bought this ssd two days ago and only got random freezes when I try to install the OS.

Just wanna confirmed that I've successfully installed Mojave with a 970evo Plus. Here's my simple guide.

1. Copy via image with CCC (Carbon Copy Cloner) any fresh installed macOS Mojave from a real Mac;
2. Use a USB3.1 NVMe adapter and restore it with CCC;
3. Run it 1st time externally via USB3.1 NVMe adapter and setup the EFI;
3. After that, install the 970 EVO Plus internally to the M.2 slot; and
4. Start your system and enjoy.

p/s - Sorry for my bad English.

I can't update my hardware profile :) We have 47 Mac Minis in our office. The 970EvoPlus doesn't run in any of them.

What he meant is copy your EFI that is working from your side and attached to it, or work around, so long it boot on your side or you might copy or observe his EFI granting if he provides.
