    hi, this is my first thread, I hope someone may help me.

    Current situation:

    mp 4.1 upg 5.1
    6x3.46 w3690
    gtx680 flashed
    24gb 1333
    10.12.6
    system disk(s) sonnet tempo ssd pro plus raid 0 2x256 gb 850pro - write 980 mb/s

    I want to upgrade a little, and change from the raid 0 sonnet system to nvme 970. with 10.14

    Hardware is installed, but no detection.

    I didn´t flash the kext file yet, because I´m not sure about the process becaus step1 https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/mac-pro-best-drive-configuration.2006863/page-2#post-24307089
    csrutil disable; reboot
    doesn´t work on the sonnet system because I can´t go into the "startup terminal" setup. I can´t install bootcamp or intervene in any case during the starting process with this configuration.

    Today I tested Installing High Sierra on a second ssd bay and it worked but not really good. After a few tries 10.13.1 it was bootable but the system drive wasn´t initialized - very strange. The system ran but you got no drive. And for installing mojave you need 10.13.6 (normal update oder combo update) but i tried all options to install but got no good satisfying result.

    Then i changed to the 10.12.6 raid system as startup volume as before and evereything worked fine and the ssd bay was initialized correctly.

    tomorrow I want to try to do the same procedure without the ssd raid system inside

    should I change the graphics card for the installing process to the original gt 120 gra cd?

    nvme as bootable startup volume possible or only a dream?

    thx for help

    And no RAID for the boot drive in HS or Mojave.
