Here's a datapoint, for whatever it's worth:

I tried installing a PM981 into a genuine MacPro5,1 using a NVMe to PCIe adapter card. System is running 10.13.4. The unit sees the drive, but will randomly but frequently throw kernel panics on the genuine NVMe driver.

Seems the PM981 is flatly incompatible with OSX for whatever reason.

YES,I used nvme spoof to drive it and succeed, but still have some problems when running OS X 10.13.4, so I sold it out and bought a SM961 to install OS X, really perfect.

Has anyone been able to test some patch that works for this SSD model or is it possible that in the new version of OSX the installation of PM 981 can be supported? What would be your best recommendation?

Replace with compatible SSD hardware.
Hi Mr. RehabMan,

I have faith with the compatibility of PM981 in the next update. It is a good nvme disk. I think that PM981 = 970 EVO, perhaps, it's possible.

I can't sell this velocity. It's gold. :)

Is Samsung 970 EVO m.2 100% compatible with High Sierra ?
