DiskUtility doesn't read new SSD with adapter


I have A1466, with motherboard 820-3437-B.

I tried to install a new SSD for more Storage, but the disk utility doesn't read anything (tried with "utildisk list" too), I used 2 different SSDs:

I tried even more adapters:

I get the same results with different products, i have to specify that the old (original SSD) is still functioning, and when I plug it the disk utility recognize it immediatly.

I even tryed with an USB adapter, and with that it WORKS, I mean from disk utility I initialized the disk and even installed the macOS, which works perfectly fine with the USB adapter.

Anyone knows how and why my motherboard doesn't read the "adapter/ssd"?

What is the OS-X/macOS you have on your current drive and how are you trying to setup the drive from within Internet recovery?

First you are trying to use a M.2 SSD with an adapter as Apple SSD are custom to them. These SSD’s and adapters have issues!

I would use the proper SSD or use one that has been designed from the ground up like either OWC or Transcend drives.

well of course that was the easiest way, but it costs a lot, i checked online and a lot of people didn't have any problem with the adapter, but i don't get why mine doesnt work


wow leggion - Again, how are you trying to setup the drive, what is your system’s OS version?

Sometimes going cheap is more expensive in the long haul, I’ve pulled out quite a few of these as they don’t hold up.


the recovery system OS is OS X Maverick


Then you are fighting the older file system (HFS+) vs the newer file system the system is expecting (APFS).

You can’t use Mavericks as it doesn’t know how to boot up under APFS which is how you setup the SSD.
