Hi

Im making a hackintosh the old fashioned way. No VM or linux

UniBeast Multibeast (so clover) on fresh hardware, most importantly an Aorus wifi MOBO and a WD black M.2 SSD. 

I have heard that for some reason macOS doesn't work over m.2 and i do not understand why nor do i understand the premise of the workaround. 

Will i be able to stick my boot usb into a computer with only an M.2 drive for storage and make a bootable disk?

That was before when Apple used a slightly modified version of the NVMe standard that was proprietary to themselves. However, for the latest versions of macOS, most NVMe drives should work out of the box. Just avoid using the Samsung PLUS drivers as they're not stable with macOS.

 

With your build in particular, there should be no issue. I personally would recommend using an all in one installer like Niresh https://www.hackintoshzone.com/.

I am using Mojave, not 64bitler AHM I mean Catalina. Is that new enough?
