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've come to an impasse on the making after a period of what feels like exhaustive research on external nvme SSD's for my iMac video editing setup. My knowledge and experience has maxed out, and I was wondering if anyone with better insight would be so grateful as to help me with some...
I've installed Window 10 on a SSD in the bay 1 and on a NVME Sabret RocketQ 1TB on a I/O Crest Dual NVME on the PCI's Slot 2.
I've tried to play flawlessly with Overwatch, Hero of the Storms, DIablo 3 on my NVME and I can conclude that it is not working properly. Some flickering appear or...

Hello, I do hope you as the reader are well!
I have been given a Late 2012 iMac 2.7ghz 21.5" as a gift, and it is painfully slow. The HDD corrupted and it is running off an external HDD connected via USB. So I am looking to add a few upgrades. I am focussing on the RAM and SSD as the CPU...
Hi All and thanks in advance for any advice. I've searched the forum and sticky SSD thread but can only find this issue as regards MBPs not Mac Pro.
I'm currently running a Mac Pro 4,1 2x 2.26 flashed to a 5,1. I have recently upgraded the machine to Mojave on a PCIe SSD and I am now having...
