Is the Macbook air running the latest bootrom? Latest bootrom is MBA71.0177.B00.

Make sure you are using the High Sierra disk utility to create the partitions.

Yes, I already updated to high sierra ans create the bootable USB from there.

I was trying to search the new SSD from diskutil list, still cannot detect it.

Did you apply kapton tape to the adapter? Can you test the drive and/or adapter in another computer?
Nope I didn't. I have only MBA here.

Sorry for this question, can you teach me how to put the tape?

That adapter doesn't look like it has kapton tape on it. The tape is required to ensure that the metal contacts on the sintech don't make contact with the metal shield on top of the motherboard PCIe connector.

Did you try reinserting the drive and adapter?
Yes I did several times.

Okey, I will try to put kaptan tape on it. Thank you!
