15" rMBP mid-2014 11,3, a new WD Black NVMe M.2 7.2017/fw B35500WD and a CY adapter. Old BootROM MBP112.0138.B16.
Updated BootROM to latest MBP112.0142.B00
With a Apple AHCI SSD as internal drive, updated, swapped in the NVMe. Installed OS.
Success. WD Black NVMe M.2 formatted 4k sector size, Journaled GPT, installed 10.13 and then 10.12. Internal NVMe SSD works as boot drive.
One hitch in my system with the WD Black, in both 10.12 & 10.13:
Restart/Reboot times out to ? folder. With Battery or AC.
Shutdown then Power Button successfully boots.
Sleep-Wake works with a quick, cursory test.
During the OS install, with auto-reboots, I manually shutdown and powered up (otherwise boots from external Installer drive). The NVMe drive always appeared as a boot drive when Option key was held [Edit:] [at cold-boot].
Will another NVMe brand be trouble-free?
Hi there, did you manage to find a fix for your reboot then hang issue with the WD Black NVMe as I am having the exact same damn problem! Thanks!

[doublepost=1509096801][/doublepost]Kingston HyperX predator SSD AHCI works with no problems what so ever? Would someone confirm for me as I need to be able to use the laptop with sleep, hibernate, power saving for battery and can safely reboot without errors. Thanks!
