If i use this method to update, will all my files still be in the same place that they were in El Capitan?
Yes.


USA version is here > https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/MAXIMUS-VIII-GENE/HelpDesk_Download/

For some strange reason, the 1901 BIOS won't let me download the new 2202 over the Internet option in the ASUS BIOS update BIOS option. Thus, I had to do it the good olde fashion way. Bah!
I just updated my motherboard to the 2202 version and now my El Capitan won't even boot. The logo and loading bar come up but it doesn't progress at all

Had that trouble too the last time I did the BIOS update. I unplug my drives now to do BIOS updates.
You might check your BIOS setting and make sure that they were not changed.

I have tested Rehabman's NVMe patch based upon the Pike code. It works and eliminates the shutdown/start-up error problem we've seen with the NMVeGeneric.kext. If you use RehabMan's patch, backup your NMVeGeneric.kext.

https://github.com/RehabMan/patch-nvme

Here's my procedure for using the patch script:

:ch:Download the patch .zip file and keep it in your ~/Download folder. Unzip it and note the folder name because mine was named "patch-nvme-master"

:ch:Use this Terminal command to determine your installation drive's EFI partition:
Code:
diskutil list

:ch:Use the EFI Mounter v3 to mount your installation's drive EFI partition

:ch:Go to the /EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11/ folder and drag the NMVeGeneric.kext to a backup location. This will just copy the file, so, after you copied it, trash the NMVeGeneric.kext in the .../10.11/ folder.

:ch:Run the following Terminal commands (again, make sure of the patch folder's name in /Downloads):
Code:
cd ~/Downloads/patch-nvme-master
./patch_nvme.sh 10_11_6

:ch:Drag the HackrNVMeFamily-10_11_6.kext from the ~/Downloads/patch-nvme-master/ folder to the /EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11/ folder.

:ch:Reboot

:thumbup:


Hmm I followed these instructions to a tee, yet I am on Sierra now so I replaced 10_11_6 with 10_12_0
the script ran fine, then I dragged the kext into /EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/OTHER folder.
rebooted and it locked up while booting.

I am trying to use my Samsun Pro 250GB NVME PCIE

In my Post #1 post MultiBeast procedures and per RehabMan's instructions, I stated the following:
:ch: Drag the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext from the Downloads/patch-nvme-master/ folder to the Desktop.
:ch: Make sure that only the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext is the only kext on your Desktop.
:ch:Run KextBeast and select the /S/L/E/ folder to put the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext. Remove this kext from the Desktop.
So, why did you put it in the /EFI/EFI/Clover/kexts/OTHER folder?

I went to
https://github.com/RehabMan/patch-nvme

followed the readme
I just tried what you suggested same problem crashes almost right away.
I did this
./patch_nvme.sh 10_12_0
this built the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext
moved it to the desktop and ran Kextbeast.
Installed reboot crashed

anything special I need to do in Multibeat?
I am running Z170X-UD5 6700K 32GB Ram

Thanks for your help

No, nothing in MultiBeast to help with NVMe SSDs. Did you create the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext right after running MultiBeast while boot the Sierra Installation Thumb Drive? After installing the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext, did you remove the IONVMeFamily.kext from /System/Library/Extensions/?

If yes to both, then I'm out of ideas to help you. Post your problem in the OS X Driver for NVMe M.2 Solid State Drives Released.

No I first got everything running rebooted off my SSD then I built HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_0.kext
at this point I do not want to boot off the NVME just going to use it for PS Scratch and LightRoom catalogs.

I did not remove IONVMeFamily.kext maybe that's the problem

Thanks again Stork

I don't know. Search that thread I mentioned above to see if someone else posted about the PM961.
