Hey, from what I've read (example here) it's possible to hook up an NVMe drive to an iMac mid 2011 via an Apple T3 to T2 adapter and a self-powered dock. This is the setup I'm using, with a self-powered dual NVMe enclosure (from Sabrent found here). I'm running macOS Sierra 10.12.6.
I'm able to...
Hiya. I have repurposed an old 2012 Mac Pro as a dedicated test environment webserver by having a clean ubuntu server running on it and nothing else. Whole drive was wiped, no mac os is present.
I was thinking of upgrading the current rusty sata HDD to a 256GB NVME drive i have just taken out of...
My MBP keeps on randomly freeze/shut down, and I'm not sure why:
Some potential clues, but I have no idea what to make of them:
1. I upgraded my internal SSD using https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/upgrading-2013-2014-macbook-pro-ssd-to-m-2-nvme.2034976/ (Sintect adapter, Crucial P2)
I am trying to set up my new internal SSD (WD_Black SN750 2TB) with a Sintech adapter on my late 2013 Mac Pro after my factory 256gb ssd failed a bit ago and am having issues where the new SSD seemingly is not being recognized.
To begin I prepared a USB boot drive (tried both Big Sur & Mojave)...
The ssd in my macbook pro mid 2014 recently died so i booted into the macbook through an external drive.
Now i would like to know if the connector is the problem before i buy a new ssd.
so how can I find out if the connector is the problem before buying a new ssd?
I just installed the Sonnet Fusion U.2 and a Kingston DC1500M in my Mac Pro 7,1. The drive was recognized, formatted, and I’ve successfully installed and booted Monterey on it.
However, shutdown and manual reboot both result in a kernel panic and subsequent restart. Sleep apparently causes the...
I recently swapped out my (2TB) dual fusion drive setup on my 2017 iMac 27", to a singular 2TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus NVMe with the Sintech adapter. Alongside the SSD swap, I also installed 32GB of Crucial memory, coming from the stock 8GB apple memory. Before I sealed the screen back up, I...
I have my Macbook Pro 17 Mid 2010 (Specs on the image) I wan have a regular HDD with 500GB, and im looking to upgrade the disk to a nMVE of 500gb or 1TB.
I am not an expert on this, but i want to know if anyone has done this on this specific computer, Ive been researching on the...
Hello MacRumors friends.
What happens if you remove the hardisk of a Fusion drive and made it into an external drive? Would your User folders be there (Documents, Desktop, Pictures, etc.) and will it be readable?
I plan to remove both the Apple SSD and the hardisk of the 2TB fusion drive in a...
I bought a Crucial 1TB P2 NVME SSD to replace my stock 256gb storage, plugged it in using an adapter from eBay, and to my enormous frustration the SSD was recognised and formatable in recovery mode disk utility, but upon attempting to install Big Sur via bootable USB, the installer got...
Greetings. I am on:
4,1 MP flashed to 5,1
Radeon RX 580
64 GB RAM
2x 3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
Boot ROM MP51.0089.B00
SATA SSD as boot disk
2x NVME M.2 blades via PCIe adapters on my two PCIe 4x lanes remaining after putting in the GPU (which covers my two 16x lanes)
I tested the speed of the new PNY XLR8 CS3140 1TB M.2 installed in a Wavlink TB3 enclosure connected to my Mac Mini 16/248GB/11.3.1.
When booted on APPLE M1 internal SSD
M1 Internal SSD speed is ~3177 write ~2850 read
TB3 CS3140 SSD speed is ~2701 write ~2539 read
When booted from TB3 SSD
I'd like to know if there's an alternative software (even paid) to the free Blackmagic Disk Speed test I can get for my mac.
The reason I'd like a second test is that I sometimes experience weird behaviours with some SSDs, and this has been the same on different macs and different new...
I know it’s been discussed a lot here but I’m still can’t get my Mac Pro to boot nvme i saw any possible guide but all the guides are written and I can’t understand them can someone send me a video of how to upgrade the 2008 Mac bootrom or maybe write me a new guide or just explain...
Lately I'm having some serious issues with my 2 yrs old 13" Macbook Pro (2017, with TouchBar, 4 Thunderbolts, 512Gb). It started about a year ago (while still on Catalina). When I left it in sleep mode for the night and I opened it in the morning I noticed that my computer restarted...
I used Anker NVME enclosure (RTL9210B-CG USB 3.1 Gen2) w/ crucial 1TB P2 NVME drive for external storage.
After I backup 3 of my iOS devices (using symlink) to my M1 and eject the drive, the drive could no longer mount to both M1 and an Intel Mac. The mac sees the usb chipset, but it just does...
I just purchesed a intel 665p 1Tb m.2 NVMe disk and a USB 3.1 gen 2 compatible enclosure that I use with my MacBook Pro M1.
The enclosure is a Icy Box IB-1817M-C31 and is said to be using chipset JMS583.
I did a Blackmagic disk speed test v.3.3 and the results says that i get max approx...
