    Hey everyone,
    I have a m.2 installed in my 2009 Mac Pro pci slot, the disc shows in system profiler but not in disc utility. I checked terminal using (diskutil list) and it does not show up. I tried different pci slots, restarting, reset pram and SMC, I even tried reinstalling the OS but still no luck. I noticed when the m.2 is installed my system boots and shuts down very slowly, but when it's removed it boots super quick. Any thoughts?

    Faulty card or PCI slot? can you move the graphics card to any of the other slots and see if it works?
    Sounds like it's not recognizing it as a storage device...is there other hardware or software needed for it to work?
