After all the changes I have made following cmn699 I have added the config.plist line you send me and everything works.
I attach here the EFI directory inf can help anyone else.

About Samsung 970 EVO plus, I have updated the firmware, and tryed to install Mojave again but I had no success. I attach the bad screen message.
I will buy new SSD as cnm699 advise

I thanks you all for support.
  • Glad you finally succeeded to install macOSMojave 10.14.? on Fujitsu SATA Spin Disk 16) GB on SATA -0 :clap:
  • It's a shame, you could not use your Faster Samsung 970 EVO Plus as your macOSMojave System Disk.
    • As robcop sugested, I too have seen reports of some users succeeding to use that after a Firmware update through Windows.
      • Unfortunately those who report success are not providing details in their excitement of success and just use words like it "worked like a charm".
    • I don't have the Samsung 970 EVO Plus to test it myself and create a Photographic documentation of the whole process to be of use to myself and others.
  • Thank you for uploading the Image of how the Samsung 970 EVO Plus reacted when you tried to install on it with a Prohibit Entry Error, basically warning that data cannot be transferred through the root of this Disk!
    • I suggest you do a detailed "autopsy" of why the disk failed by going through the steps of Flashing the firmware.
    • I will also suggest to test if the same Samsung 970 EVO Plus can take a Windows 10 installation as it was expected to do.
  • May be now with Windows 10 Installed on it(provided it was not damaged by a faulty Firmware update), you may try to connect the Samsung 970 EVO Plus as a two disk dual boot with CLOVER EFI booting both to CBM screen and then Windows 10 using its Boot Manager to its Destination screen.

On the Samsung 970 Evo Plus I have installed Windows 10 and all the software I need. It works fine in Windows 10,is fast without any issue right night.
For Mojave it works on Fujitsu but I have buyed this one.
Silicon Power SSD PCIe M.2 NVMe 512GB Gen3x4 R/W up to 3200/3000MB/s SSD

that should be like cmn699. It should arrive Sathurday.
Il will not do any other experiment on Samsung 97Evo Plus, I will rest in peace about it.

  • I don't blame you :). If it ain't broke don't fix it:thumbup:
  • Please note I used that Silicon Power SSD PCIe M.2 NVMe 512GB disk in the QNINE Dual M.2 PCIe Adapter using M-key I had shown:,
  • Please NOTE it has an M.2 NVME SSD (M Key) or M.2 SATA SSD (B Key) 22110 2280 2260 2242 2230 to PCI-e 3.0 x4 Host Controller Expansion Card with Low Profile Bracket for PC Desktop

  • I had inserted a second disk Silicon Power 128GB A55 M.2 SSD as SATA III to SATA port via SATA cable shown in that image I had uploaded.
    • I had Windows 10 on the SATA III SSD that used the B key .
Warning:
  • Be Careful when connecting the SSD in the right orientation , No undue force, it may cause pin damage to either the Adapter or the Disk or both!!!!
