Using HackrNVMeFamilyInjector.kext (class-code spoof injector kext) is the same as using native IONVMeFamily.kext (no class-code spoof).
How to understand "is the same as using native IONVMeFamily.kext"?Thank you.

HackrNVMeFamilyInjector.kext is to be used only in dual boot scenarios (with 10.12/10.11 combined with 10.13).
It is covered in the README on github.

Same problem here, it doesn't matter how I format the drive, the machine crashes after short up time. Running MacOS 10.13.3 on a Hackintosh Clover 4392. Looking for a solution.

No "Problem Reporting" files attached.
Read FAQ, "Problem Reporting" again. Carefully. Attach all requested files/output.

Use the gen_debug.sh tool mentioned in the FAQ, that way it is less likely you'll omit something.

Also, please fix your profile as per FAQ ... your profile has no laptop hardware details.

Off-topic.
This thread is in laptop forum and is specific to "x1 carbon 2017", as per thread title.

Thanks for the response. I don't have a laptop to list.
Someone else built my Hackintosh. I am a newbie and trying to improve on it.
I just gave up yesterday and bought a sm961 to instead of PM981 for using. It really feels good.

Right. I've tried contacting Samsung to no avail (also tried an email to samsungsemi.com).
I will try Lenovo as well, but highly doubtful.
The X1 Carbon Gen 6 page from Lenovo has no firmware updates, only a Rapid Storage driver.

Attached is all the information I have on this drive.
