Connecting NVME drive with information.

My girlfriends Mac laptop gave out but I got her NVME drive which is fine. My motherboard has a NVME port on it. My question is, can I connect the drive and will it appear as an unassigned drive so I can recover her information? Is it that simple? Haha.

Yes, is that simple, i've using NVME disks in my unraid and it detects them without problems as unassigned devices, the only caveats is the support for passthrough to a VM, specifically with Intel 660P and some other models.

Let us know how it goes and report back.


Also, can you provide the make/model number/year of that specific MacBook, and also the same for the drive? I actually have a MacBook Pro 15'' Touchbar that died recently and I am about to do the same. Any issues ripping out the drive? Mine is actually soldered to the motherboard, so not even sure I can get it out safely without a ton of work.


As for hooking up drives to UNRAID Unassigned devices via available motherboard interfaces/USB, I have done this many times successfully, including with NVME PCIe.
