What is the point of this fling if you can’t use the USB-C / Thunderbolt ports? The 2018 Mac Mini is attractive for its external device expandability. If you can only use one or the other, it’s like either like crossing a street made of needles without boots, or having boots but no feet.

Quick question guys. What version can we go to with the current nvme fling on a mac mini 8.1?

The requirements are below but it's a bit confusing since one line says 7.x is now supported with the 1.2 fling when the following line says newer than 6.7p03 is not supported.


Apple NVMe
Apple 2018 Intel Mac Mini 8,1 or Apple 2019 Intel Mac Pro 7,1
ESXi 7.x or newer is now supported with v1.2 Fling
Anything newer than ESXi 6.7 Patch 03 (Build 16713306) is NOT supported

Thanks for the catch Kevin. Prior to v1.2, we couldn't support ESXi 7.x but it is now possible but I forgot to remove the 6.7 reference (its fixed)

That's awesome news. Thanks William. I'll look at upgrading my host to 7.x

Where is the software disconnect happening that is making NVMe a challenge? Is it with the hardware that the NVMe is connected to or is it with the NVMe storage device itself or both? We are trying to setup white box VMware servers using HP Flex PCs as they are very beefy and support NVMe on the motherboard. We loaded up VMware 7 and the community NVMe driver but our NVMe storage is not accessible. If I go into the packages list, I see nvme-community so I know the package is loaded.
